I train 3 times a week. Once for sheer strength, once for cardio and once for form and technique. I know others who train more but, on top of boxing and wrestling, I think I'd be totaled. I mean, I love the gym but where do these supermen get their energy? Or is it just my age?
As I get older the need to incorporate stretching into my training regime seems to become greater and greater. Muscle tears and strained ligaments are now a recurring theme, and I have spent 6 months in the last 18 on the sidelines for injury.
I wonder - do any of the regular wrestlers and boxers here have a routine of stretching as part of their training. Does anyone do yoga for example, and does it help?
How do you guys condition your bodies for regular boxing and/or wrestling?
