Re: Anyone else starting to get excited?
"Same here" in regards to getting stronger for your sonů Yes muscle and size does help but I can tell you from personal experience and many years of coaching that strength by no means is the answer to being a successful wrestler. The number one thing your son needs is technique. You look at people like Jon Smith. He was a 2X NCAA champ and 6 time world medalist. I want to say it wasn't until college Sophomore year when he was able to bench 135 pounds. yes he is a man among children and a once in a blue moon conversation when it comes to his technique. However, I have seen year after year smaller wrestlers beat bigger guys based on technique. I hope this helps.
