Wrestling – Core Strength for Power on the Mat

Posted by

Why is Core Strength Essential for Wrestlers?

As a wrestler, you know that when you shake hands with your opponent to start a match is due or die time. All eyes are on you and you only have yourself to rely on. Wrestlers who have the endurance to maintain throughout the entire match have a huge advantage. It is essential to be able to finish strong. Core strength will enable a wrestler to remain stable, balanced, and centered in order to prevent their opponent from taking hold of them. Without explosive core strength a wrestler could easily end up on their back and being on your back is the last place you want to be.
