I haven't done any freestyle wrestling in a couple of years. The official line is that I've been focusing on Muay Thai, that MT is better for fitness and more usable on the street should I ever need it. Add to that a few sessions of BJJ here and there and bugger me I'm one hard bastard. Well today I went wrestling, and realise just how much I've been lieing to myself for the past couple of years. The real reason I haven't done any is because it's way too f'king tough. Within half an hour I had to go to the window as I thought I was going to puke, and my hands are still shaking now, 6 hours and 3 meals later. Yep, I've got me a new hobby.
Now onto the point of this thread: is there anything in the world, other than wrestling itself that can get me in to decent shape for wrestling? Like I say I've been doing thai and western boxing, and am obsessive in my gym going, so I'm not exactly a couch potato, but today it counted for absolutely nothing.
