with Scot Davis, former Owatonna (MN) Head Coach; 2009 Dream Team Classic Head Coach; 2x National High School Coach of the Year ('07 and '98); Over 980 dual meet victories - the most all time by any wrestling coach; Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame; 2x Minnesota High School Coach of the Year; 2x Minnesota AAA State champions
Strength and conditioning training is a vital part of every wrestler's success. Scot Davis presents the wrestling workout program he incorporates with great success. Coach Davis dedicates the bulk of the instruction to the in-season circuit training program. Davis, with head strength coach Jerry Eggermont, demonstrates the nine-station circuit program that includes the Plate Workout Series and its six variations. These exercises not only assist and maintain the work from the off-season workouts, but also help increase the flexibility and maintain muscular endurance the wrestlers will need throughout the season. These high-intensity lifts are performed at a 1:2 ratio that will give your athletes a lot of work in a short amount of time and feature lifts for grip strength, core strength, lower body strength, explosiveness and to strengthen the "pull muscles." Davis includes 10 conditioning drills to work in the room throughout the season to help break the monotony and help build mental toughness. As a bonus, Davis provides a nutritional guideline for wrestlers. This is a list of nutritional do's and don'ts for daily, match day, pre-match meals and between tournament matches to keep your wrestlers fueled for maximum performance. An excellent wrestling DVD to give your wrestlers the edge they need to reach their goals.
