How to win high school wrestling matches
High school wrestling is arguably the toughest sport. It’s only 3 minutes, if you can last that long. But with some training, you build endurance, you build strength and you learn technique. Even though you learn and gain all things necessary to win a match, you just can’t seem to win. During practice, you perform well but when it’s time for an official match, you end up getting pinned. Does this sound like you?
I played 3 sports in high school: football, track and field and wrestling. I was competitive and I loved wrestling. The problem was, I had trouble winning matches. I had great technique, I was strong and physically fit. I liked to wrestle all my friends and my teammates. In practice, I would pin just about everyone, but for some reason, I just could not win many matches, and it wasn’t because they were better than me. What I lacked was CONFIDENCE.
I realized this problem I had about a third of the way in the season. The very first match I wrestled, I actually did very well. For some reason, I was very confident. My next match was a tournament on a weekend. Here is the problem with tournaments, it’s the wait. I wrestled my first match after almost 2 hours after I warmed up. I got what is called “gym head.” I wasn’t ready to wrestle and lost miserably. Since then, my confidence was down and I was afraid to lose.
I realized that my problem was not having confidence. I was wrestling not to lose and not to let my coach down. This guide changed everything for me: Wrestling Toughness: complete mental toughness training for wrestlers and MMA athletes
Wrestling is a one on one match, but it is still a team effort. Your team could win or lose depending on how you do. That is a lot of pressure. I not only started not liking wrestling but started dreading it. I was afraid of letting people down and being an embarrassment. I would dream of school being canceled on the day we were suppose to have a match. I would pray for snow or sleet to come. Has this happened to anyone? It was a problem for sure. But then I came across a very useful guide. It is called ” Wrestling Toughness: complete mental toughness training for wrestlers and MMA athletes.” This was the best thing that has happened for me. I found this online and was really skeptical at first, but I was desperate I took the plunge.

I was afraid of losing but did not truly desire to win. There are “secrets” in the material that helped me not only get over the phobia of wrestling but it made me a better person.
