An eye-opening article revealing the latest break-through in wrestling-specific strength and conditioning training!
By Steve Preston MSed
Dear Wrestling Friend,
This is Steve Preston of Wrestling Performance and I’m pumped that you found this website because you’re about to learn how wrestlers, JUST LIKE YOU are experiencing the fastest improvements ever in their wrestling performance – every 28 days like clock work – using the exact same system I’m about to tell you about on this page.
Wrestling is a sport that has many challenges both physically and mentally… and only the strong survive in this sport. You can’t neglect any aspect of your wrestling or you won’t win…
For success in wrestling you need to train:
You train these things day in and day out, for hours and hours… drilling them over and over and over again. But sometimes that’s not good enough. Sometimes you still have weaknesses in your wrestling game. There is one problem that we must address right now…
You see, every wrestler is an individual and every individual is different. That means you may have to work on a particular aspect of your wrestling more than your teammates. For example, you may have a weakness in your ability to finish your takedowns. You begin drilling takedowns for hours upon hours. BUT… if you don’t train the actual muscles used in the takedowns to get stronger and work as a group, you’ll just be going through the motions.
1. First, have your coach analyze your strengths and weaknesses. What is your biggest challenge on the wrestling mat? – Do you need more grip strength? – Do you need more foot speed? – Do you need to build more upper body strength to pin your opponents? – Do you need to increase your power to defeat your opponents? – Do you need to improve your take down defense? – Do you need to finish more of your take down attempts? The list goes on… Just be honest with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses.
2. Set aside 3 days per week for your specialization training. Roughly 45 minutes are needed. It is great to do during the offseason and preseason.
3. Use priority training. You add exercises designed to improve your weaknesses quickly for 2 of the 3 workouts. Let’s say you need more speed on your feet. You would use great foot speed exercises like the Scramble to Balance drill or Sumo Style Deadlifts in 2 of 3 workouts per week. You’d then balance the rest of your program with exercises for the rest of your body.
4. Maintain strength for the rest of your body. As you prioritize your training to improve your weaknesses on the wrestling mat, be sure to keep your other “wrestling muscles” strong. (It’s important to keep a balance of strength throughout your body to maximize performance and minimize your injuries) 28 days in total! Research has shown that 28 days (4 weeks) is an optimal amount of time to train any sport-specific workout. Gone are the days of simply training the entire wrestling team with the football team’s workout. Gone are the days of pushups and situps for hours and hours. These “old-school” strength training methods just don’t cut it any more.
Workout # 1 – Grip Strength Specialization Program ($20 value)
If you’ve ever lost a take down attempt because of grip strength or couldn’t finish a move because you lost your grip then this workout is for you. You’ll get a perfectly constructed training program to help you:
Workout # 2 – Foot Speed Specialization Program ($20 value)
I receive tons of emails and questions every wrestling season about foot speed. A common mistake many coaches make is to have their wrestlers do “speed drills” instead of building strength and speed into specific muscles. In this foot speed for wrestling program you’ll:
Workout #3 – Take Down Specialization Workout ($20 value)
Completing a take down in wrestling is a combination of different body parts and many muscles, all working together. In this specialization program you will develop these muscles groups. The Take Down Specialization Workout will:
Workout # 4: Escapes/Stand Ups Specialization Workout ($20 value)
Your ability to stand up when wrestling from bottom or escape from bottom are crucial to success in the sport. The Escapes Specialization workout will help you:
Workout #5 – Pinning Specialization Workout ($20 value)
Sometimes the difference between getting 6 points for your team or not is your ability to pin your opponents. If you want to be able to finish more of your matches with pins then this workout is for you. The Pinning Specialization workout will:
Workout #6 – Take Down Defense Specialization Workout ($20 value)
Do you need to improve your take down defense? I remember when Cael Sanderson told me that the very first thing is father taught him was take down defense. The Take Down Defense Specialization workout will:
Workout #7 – Strength with No Weight Gain Specialization Workout ($20 value)
One of the biggest challenges wrestlers face is trying to get stronger while keeping your body weight down. If that’s you then this workout is for you. The Strength with No Weight Gain Specialization workout will help you:
Workout #8 – Athletic Specialization Workout ($20 value)
Wrestling is a unique sport. In fact, I’ve seen some darn good wrestlers who weren’t the best athletes… But… if you make yourself more athletic, your wrestling will instantly improve. This unique workout program will help you:
This program is great to use at least 1 month of every year for ultimate wrestling performances!
Workout #9 – “High Intensity Training” Specialization Workout ($20 value)
High Intensity Training (H.I.T.) goes together with the sport of wrestling like “peanut butter and jelly.” H.I.T. is one of the best ways to increase your wrestling strength FAST! I modified the original H.I.T. for Wrestlers program I created to help you:
Workout #10 – Power Specialization Workout ($20 value)
When you exert force against your opponent and win you are displaying “power.” Power is one of the most important areas to develop in order to wrestle strong and fast at the same time. But developing power is a commonly misunderstood topic with many wrestling coaches. In this 4 week Power Specialization workout you’ll:
Workout #11 – Gain Weight and Strength Specialization Workout for Wrestlers ($20 value)
Every now and again, wrestlers need to gain weight to move up a weight class. This is where the Gain Weight and Strength Specialization Workout will help you. With this workout you’ll:
Workout #12 – Advanced Body Weight Workout ($20 value)
No gym? No problem. This workout was designed to be done almost anywhere. Body weight training can be extremely beneficial in the long-term training goals for wrestlers. But don’t assume it’s easy… this program is very tough! With the Advanced Body Weight Specialization workout for wrestlers you’ll:
This is the original Thrasher 12 Week training program that I designed for wrestlers and fighters about 8 years ago.

Great for any age wrestler and any ability. Can also be done at home! ($30 value)
This is a collection of workouts that I’ve created over the years for wrestlers of all ages and ability levels. It will help keep you sharp and focused by never getting bored with your training.

I did a phone interview with Olympian Ken Chertow. Ken is ‘the man’ when it comes to training young wrestlers and turning them into Champions. He has camps all across the country. Ken reveals his favorite Exercises for wrestling training that you can use as well. ($30 value)
I had the pleasure of interviewing Olympian Gene Mills. Gene has been known as the Pinning Machine. He gives really practical technique and training tips to improve your wrestling. He’s a great guy with a wealth of knowledge that he shared with me. A must-hear interview for you. ($30 value)

You have 60 days of unlimited email coaching to answer your training and nutrition questions. Let me help you cut out the wasted time and get you to a champion level of wrestling fast! ($150 value)
And today, you have the opportunity to get the entire 13-part, $270 package for less than the price of a one- hour personal training session with a trainer that still thinks that wrestlers should “lift weights like bodybuilders.” Heck, if you were to hire me personally to train you, it would cost $75/session. At 3 sessions per week for 4 weeks it would total $900! To be honest, I don’t even have the time for personal training/coaching these days. Between online coaching, being a PE Specialist, and having a family, I don’t take on many clients. As you can see, the entire 13-part program is a real $270 value. You also get OVER $400 in bonuses.
If you’re a wrestler, coach or parent you have 2 choices:
1. OPTION 1: Continue doing what you’ve always done. If you are happy with your wrestling performance and win all of your matches, then I say “awesome, keep it up.” If your old-school training program is getting you results, then don’t budge. If you or your wrestlers are super-strong, and don’t have any weaknesses to work on, you have my sincere blessing…
BUT… if the first option isn’t you, try this:
2. OPTION 2: You can start adding Specialization Training into your normal wrestling training regimen. You’ll quickly blast through your sticking points and build your wrestling weaknesses into strengths. Even if you don’t have any weaknesses on the mat, your specialization training will super-charge your mat performances.
If you are resistant to change, then this isn’t for you. If you like to keep things the way they’ve always been then I’m not here to change your mind…
But if you’d rather
Then honestly, this seems to be the best decision you can make for your wrestling this season. Wouldn’t you agree?

P.P.S. Got a question? I’ve got answers!
Q: What exactly is the Workouts for Wrestlers Program and how does it work so fast?
The Workouts for Wrestlers program is actually
12 13 different “specialization” programs for wrestlers. They are strength training programs that are each 4 weeks long (12 total workouts) that are geared to help you specialize on any of your wrestling weaknesses to quickly turn them into strengths… and in turn, win more matches!
Q: How is this program different from your original Ultimate Wrestling Strength program?
My original Ultimate Wrestling Strength program still remains the world’s #1 program for wrestlers. It is based on using an Offseason, Preseason and Inseason approach to strength and conditioning. The Workouts for Wrestlers program is actually 13 mini-programs for those wrestlers and coaches that really want to specialize in their wrestling training and turn it up a notch. Honestly, I like them in both equally well!
Q: How did you discover the power of Specialization Training for Wrestlers? I’ve worked with young athletes for over 20 years as a coach, trainer and teacher. I’ve realized that many young wrestlers don’t have the physical strength to match their skills. In other words, they can’t wrestle at their best because they are limited in their overall strength, speed and power. I had a few wrestling dad’s who wanted to know if I could get their Sons into shape fast… because we only had a month. It dawned on me that these wrestlers had the same amount of time to get strong and in shape but they had different weaknesses. One of the kids could never hold on to an ankle after he shot in for a takedown… so I tweaked his program to key on his grip strength. The other kid always got shot in on by his opponents, so I tweaked his program to improve his foot speed and takedown defense. Their programs were individualized to level out their weaknesses. It worked so well I began gathering all of the specialization workouts I had created over the years… and make them available for all. Hence, Workouts for Wrestlers was born.
Q: How do I know which of the programs to use? If you have a distinct weakness in your wrestling technique that you need to work on, then use the program most closely suited towards it. If you’re not sure, just use the one that seems most-appealing. The cool thing is that every one of the programs will get you overall wrestling strength while it’s specializing on one area of weakness. You can try any of them out… or all of them. They all work, and they all work for any wrestler. The only rule is that you shouldn’t perform the same workout for more than 4 weeks at a time. You can perform a certain workout for 4 weeks, switch to a different workout… and then come back to the original workout if you choose.
Q: Is the Workouts for Wrestlers training programs meant for Inseason or Offseason? No matter what sport you’re in, the Inseason is not usually the best time to experiment with new training programs. The inseason training should usually keep you just strong enough to get through the season with maximal performances and minimize injuries.
HOWEVER, the Workouts for Wrestlers 4 week programs can be used any time of year. If you’re in the middle of your season, you may want to cut back to only 2 workouts per week instead of 3. This works really well, and still allows you to focus on your season while improving your weaknesses.
Q: Do I need a gym membership or fancy equipment to do the Workouts for Wrestlers programs? In short, no. I created these programs so that guys with minimal equipment can perform them. I think a basic setup with barbell, dumbbells, medicine ball, swiss ball, chin bar, dip bar are essential. There are a few extra exercises that may need to be substituted for if you train at home. For instance, I love the Glute/Ham Raise exercise. If you have access to a Glute/Ham machine that would be awesome. If you don’t, that’s ok too. You can always substitute exercises. If you have questions, you can always send me an email:)
Q: I’m a coach and I have elementary, middle, and high school aged wrestlers. Can they all do this program? As with any strength and conditioning program, they work better as a wrestler matures. The elementary aged wrestlers can definitely do the program, just with light load. Their goal is to go through the motions and have some fun. It gets more involved as the wrestler get into middle and high school. I’ve designed these programs to use mostly closed-chain exercises which are safer and less-shearing on the joints. This allows young guys to work hard without fear of hurting their joints and growth.
Q: What if I have an injury and can’t do certain exercises? Trust me, I understand. One of the reasons I’ve gotten very involved in creating specialization programs for wrestlers is because of my own needs for modified training systems. I’ve had to do this for years. If you can’t perform a certain exercise and aren’t sure how to substitute it, just ask me. I’m here to help:)
