COOL DOWN

10 MINUTE ROUTINE

When you push your body hard, you need to bring it back to normal slowly.

Take a light jog to bring your heart rate down then take 10 minutes to stretch.

Here’s a 10 minute routine to get you started.

CHEST AND SHOULDER FLEXIBILITY

20 MINUTE FLOW

Yoga is a perfect tool to help wrestlers develop more flexibility in their shoulders and neck, which leads to improved snapdowns and bridges!

This flow is perfect for flexibility training after a wrestling practice while your body is still warm.

LOWER BACK MOBILITY

20 MINUTE FLOW

Lower back pain in wrestling is WAY too common.

This yoga sequence was designed to help wrestlers reduce stiffness and increase functional flexibility in their lower back (and hips)!

LEG MOBILITY

20 MINUTE ROUTINE

After wrestling practice, this is a great flow to take advantage of while your body is warm and loose. These movements will help you cultivate better control of your legs and hips while you’re in difficult scrambling positions!

MASSAGE BALL

SELF MASSAGE

We all can’t afford daily massages or rely on a school sponsored therapy team. For the rest of us, we have to find ways to care for ourselves.

Massage balls are effective at working out tight muscles and they’re compact so we can easily carry them in our workout bag.

RAD Roller has good options and an app with plenty of usage videos and curated playlists
