My Favourite Wrestling Trip

Some days stick out. Read what a BTS student has to share about her favourite wrestling tournament.

First Session at LPS Athletic Centre

We just had our first session at the LPS Athletic Centre. Unlike many other facilities we’ve been to in the past, LPS’s coaching and training started off with education first. They outlined the reasons why for each exercise, and explained to us that this is a plan, not just a program.

We were instructed to work on a lot of fundamental elements first to get assessed on the individual abilities. The LPS team stressed that it is far more important for us be strong and flexible for wrestling first as “Strength is the Mother of All Qualities” before we start taking those elements to build speed, explosiveness, and power.

We ended the session with some sled pulls to work on our vastus medialis oblique (VMO) to strengthen the knee area as an injury-prevention mechanism to prepare them for future sessions.

We’re looking forward to our next session in a weeks time and tracking our progress in this exciting journey for our BTST athletes.
