World champion Dennis Hall has put together a tape loaded with conditioning drills and technique drills that will put your athletes in the best shape possible and will make them better wrestlers. Hall begins with eight different drills that combine technique work with a conditioning workout. Drills include Wrist Fighting, Russian Ties, Collar Ties, Stance Maintenance and Six-Minute Circuit. These drills are designed to be done in two-minute spurts, providing the same type of conditioning that long runs provide, in a shorter amount of time, thus allowing more practice time. The second half of the tape features nine drills designed to help your wrestler improve in certain situations; including drills to encourage good position, drills to counter shots, angle drills, mat drills and fighting off your back. By using these drills on a regular basis, your wrestlers' technique and conditioning will improve.

Coach Gable now presents some key wrestling drills for you to incorporate into your program that will get the "total wrestling experience," that is a complete mental and physical workout. Gable begins with a brief warm-up session that incorporates pummeling and hip heist drills. These drills will get your wrestlers ready to go all out while fine tuning important positioning techniques. The bulk of Gable's teaching focus on seven drills in a live and combative setting. The offensive drills work on reaction, set-ups and penetration to open up more scoring opportunities for your wrestlers. Gable's defensive drills will help your wrestlers keep their opponents off their legs. In addition, these defensive drills benefit those wrestlers who have trouble penetrating by turning their defense into counter offense. Gable concludes with four drills to finish practice.
