Wrestling Takedowns

Mastering Wrestling Takedowns

After wrestlers learn the proper technique and form for their stance they will learn the wrestling takedown. There are a huge variety of styles and types of takedowns in wrestling that are put in combination moves. Styles of wrestling takedowns generally focus on what part of the body a wrestler is going after on their opponent. For instance, a wrestler will use the penetration step when they are focusing on the lower portion of their opponent’s leg for control.

How Can Kinetic Bands Improve Wrestling Takedowns?

Wrestlers use the Myosource Kinetics bands to become more agile, quick, flexible, mobile, balanced, and explosive. When wrestlers train with the Myosource Kinetic Bands they are able to increase their strength, power, and speed. Wrestlers need strength to be able to lift their opponent and drive them to the mat for a takedown. The Myosource Kinetic Bands are also used by wrestlers for developing their core muscles for lifting their opponent during a takedown. Often, a wrestler is able to get their opponent off balance by focusing on a body part, but they also lift their opponent so that their opponent has no way to gain control. Wrestlers who use the Myosource Kinetic Bands build stable muscles and work their joints, tendons, and ligaments to prevent or decrease injury. The Myosource Kinetic Bands allow wrestlers to use their own body as their resistance during training. This is great for wrestlers because they compete at their weight level.
