I'm sure many wrestlers all over the world tend to stress about Thanksgiving because they are concerned about all of the eating and then having to make weight soon after...
Here are my thoughts...
Eat all you want to on Thanksgiving!
That's right... don't skimp. I want you to eat until you're content even if you are going to drop down a weight class. Hey, your Gramma would be upset if you didn't have a piece of her homemade Pumpkin Pie... so don't disappoint her.
Eat up because you will stuff the muscle cells full of glycogen and get a Leptin load in your body. This means your muscles will be ready for whatever you throw at them... the day after Thanksgiving!
The day after Thanksgiving is the best day to strength train. You will feel a monster pump like you've never felt before. Of course, you can't do this all the time or you'll never make weight. Just do it today!
Now, if you are concerned about your weight, make sure tomorrow's workout is a strength training workout... not cardio or jogging.
Jogging or cardio won't do much to use up the muscle glycogen and kick-start your weight-cutting process. Strength training, on the other hand will do exactly that. If you hit the gym tomorrow, be sure to do a full body 'flushing' workout. That means you will choose one or two exercises for each bodypart and do one set of 20-25 reps on each set to failure. This will necessitate lighter weights because of the high reps.
Here's a sample flushing program to do:
Squats or Leg Press - 1x20-25
Leg Curls or Stiff Leg Deadlift - 1x20-25
Bent Rows - 1x20-25
Chinups - 2xmax reps
Bench Press - 1x20-25
Standing Shoulder Press - 1x20-25
Barbell Curl - 1x20-25
Pushups - 1x max reps
Crunches - 1x max reps
That's it... and it works great. You'll get a huge pump and feel great. Plus, your body will have no choice but to use the food that was stored from Thanksgiving dinner. You'll jump-start your body to make weight, without the guilt.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

Last week as I was trying to upload a file to my computer it went blank...
I was pissed too... I knew that the computer was getting older. I knew that it was slow compared to the new computers out there. I also knew that I was just buying time before I would need to get with the times and cough up the cash for a new one!
So my wife Michelle and I went to a few local store to check out computers. I couldn't believe how things have changed in just 3 years. Computers that are literally half as much as what we paid for our computer 3 years ago had twice as much memory... along with so many more gadgets and gizmos...
We then began to look at the Mac computers... Let me tell ya', within 5 minutes I looked at my wife and said,"I'm convinced... let's buy this Mac right now!"
This Mac computer is the Rolls Royce of computers.
It has more power!
It is faster!
It is more durable!
It is almost immune from viruses!
The funny thing was when I thought about how similiar this Mac computer is to my new '6 Minute Conditioning' program for wrestlers...
My '6 Minute Conditioning' program for wrestlers helps you because :
- It gets you stronger
- It gets you faster
- It gets you more conditioned
- It prevents injuries
- It is simple to use
- Anyone can use it
- It is 'state of the art' in its effectiveness
By taking the time to learn more about the needs of wrestlers, I was able to create a program similiar to Mac that helps the consumer do all the things they need to do without anything complicated.
Sometimes it pays to get with the times. By having a computer that allows me to do so much more with Multimedia, I'll be able to give my members at Wrestling Performance even more one on one coaching as well as provide more killer video to get them in top condition...
When you use the 6 Minute Conditioning program for wrestlers you will be state of the art. You will get natural hormone-release from the training program... which in turn will get you stronger, faster and better conditioned fast... in 2 weeks.
