AAU Coaching Wrestling Series: Strength Training for Developing Wrestlers
with Tom Koch, Strength and Conditioning Coach for Lehigh Valley Athletic Club, former Lehigh University Assistant Coach, EIWA Champion ('96) at Lehigh

When coaching the developing wrestler, strength & conditioning is vital to their success. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to see the strength and conditioning philosophy of one of the most storied wrestling programs in the entire country.

Lehigh has always been known for their exceptional strength and conditioning and in this video, Tom Koch walks through the fundamentals of athletic training and demonstrates a myriad of exercises to help enhance your athlete's speed, power and conditioning.

Coach Koch begins with an informative overview of the principals of athletic training and how it translates to training the developing wrestler. Koch then talks about the importance of the following concepts:

  • Speed - Changing direction and quickness
  • Power - Maximizing force quickly
  • Conditioning - Small short bursts, starting and stopping quickly
Agility Ladder Training
According to Coach Koch, the perfect tool for agility training in wrestling is the agility ladder. You'll see more than 15 different drills including variations for each, for linear movement, lateral movement, plyometrics and upper body workouts. These drills help develop foot speed, coordination and "fast twitch" muscle fibers, as well as condition your athletes. You'll also see how to adapt those same agility ladder drills to develop hand speed. Your team will be able to work the entire body using the same movements to develop footwork.

Plyometric Training
Koch demonstrates several plyometric exercises designed to increase your wrestlers' functional power. He discusses common misconceptions with plyometrics that can hinder an athlete's performance improvement. There are more than 20 exercises demonstrated by Coach Koch in this section of the video, including different types of pushups, box exercises, plyometric jumps and core strength with the medicine ball.

These drills incorporate conditioning into their in strength building. This carries over perfectly to wrestling since many matches require both strength/power and strength endurance in order to be successful.

Coach Koch demonstrates, with young athletes, how these workout drills can be extremely challenging and fun at the same time. Often times athletes don't even know that they are being trained due to the change of pace and fun in completing these exercises. These are exercises that can be done by any age athlete that will push their sports development to new heights.

The use of non-traditional items within your gym will lend greatly to improving strength and body control. This video is a great tool for coaches, parents, and athletes who want to improve their strength and general body control!

and Ric Steele,

former Arizona St. University wrestler, 3x Missouri High School State Wrestling Champion

Parents and coaches are always concerned about what age their child or athlete can safely begin a weight training program. Scot Davis, the all-time winningest coach in amateur wrestling history, takes on the myths and rumors of lifting weights at the youth level and demonstrates safe lifting techniques and circuits for young wrestlers.

Coach Davis, with the help of certified fitness trainer Ric Steele, a two-time Missouri state wrestling champion and former Arizona State University wrestler, demonstrates an eight-step circuit training program to build strength in your young wrestlers. This program addresses the strength training needs of wrestlers starting at age 12.

Davis and Steele guide you through warm-up exercises and eight multi-joint exercises. Multi-joint exercises safely work several muscle groups simultaneously to create total body strength.

Junior high wrestlers perform each exercise with Steele describing the proper technique of each, as well as the benefit of each exercise and simple equipment and technique variations to meet your needs. These exercises can be done anywhere and with items found around the house.

These exercises, when performed properly, will enhance your athlete's development and lay a solid foundation for building a strong and athletic physique. This program will increase strength, muscular endurance and conditioning.

This DVD is designed for wrestlers, but can be used as a guideline for any young athlete wanting to begin a weight training program.

Help your athletes build a better base for future strength gains and develop an understanding of muscle groups they must train to become stronger, better athletes. This DVD is a great place to start any weight training program!
