Wrestling icon Dan Gable presents a number of individual workout drills that cover conditioning situations and explosive movements. These drills are ideal for the individual wrestler looking to supplement his workouts. Gable begins with a “Morning workout” that is designed to get the athlete ready to go all out. Hip heists, shoulder rolls and more not only get the wrestlers ready for hard workouts, but they also work on conditioning. From there Gable divides the presentation into four areas: Finishes, Set-ups, Set-ups and Finishes and Stance and Motion work. Each area contains at least four drill sequences that give your wrestlers the technique work out they need to ensure they score the takedown. Gable focuses on head driven finishes that will keep the opponent off balance. These sessions can last 10-15 minutes – or less depending how you mix and match based on your wrestler’s needs.
