    Over the past few weeks our wrestling club has been making some great strides in their training and competition. Right now we have eight athletes who are getting some of the best coaching available in the state of Utah. Not only do these guys have the good fortune of learning from yours truly but we are getting them super strong following world champion powerlifter Chris McGrail’s strength and conditioning programs. 

    One of those young men is Roy Nash and was the ONLY undefeated wrestler in the state of Utah this year. I’m really excited about the athletes on our club right now. Richard Larsen and Aaron Thomson will be competing at the High School Senior Nationals this week and I know they will have great stories to share when they get back. I’m looking forward to our guys getting the chance to qualify for the US Nationals in Freestyle and Greco in a few weeks. 
    Here are some quick vids to see what we’ve been up to.

  • Spring Training

    Every year it always seems like it takes spring so long to arrive. I love being outdoors and training in the fresh air. One of my favorite activities for training at the Olympic Training Center was going outside and pummeling and drilling arm drags and other standing techniques on the grass. We would work our positioning and our standing attacks outdoors where we could see the sun and feel the breeze. Those were good times. 

    Since then I’ve adopted some unique methods for outdoor training including lifting heavy rocks, pull ups on the local park equipment, and using my bike inner tubes to practice throws and sprawling defensive techniques. Training outdoors every now and then keeps things fresh and helps you adapt to new environments. Obviously there are some techniques that are less effective outdoors but I encourage all of you to take your grappling and wrestling training outside.
