Conclusion

It is important throughout your training to continue to work on your techniques. Certain aspects of your game will change as you get stronger in the gym. You will find your upper body getting stronger and you are able to dominate your opponent by using mire strength. One thing that shouldn't change (unless you get sloppy) is your biomechanics. You will have the same form on things such as your shoot and sprawl as you did previously.

Continue to wrestle even during the off-season. It will keep your mind fresh and you can continue to work on aspects of the game that you lacked the previous season. Also, playing is a great form of cardio and allows the time to pass quite quickly. Before you know it you will have done a few hours of cardio without even realizing it.
