Cardio Along with Strength and Hypertrophy Phase  


Hi! I am a high school wrestler that is entering the collegiate level. I want to build muscle through the strength and hyper trophy phases in the book but I also need to keep up my stamina and endurance with cardio at the same time. I was wondering if you could give me any pointers to increase cardio endurance and stamina as well as also gaining the benefits of strength training.

Hey man!

This is EXACTLY what I wanted back when I was fighting. And this is EXACTLY how the “Conditioning” phase was created. I was adjusting and modifying it for over a decade. “Conditioning” phase is the best training program I know for well rounded development. Just what doctor ordered for a wrestler.

It might not be apparent at first, but this program is also highly flexible. For example, in between tournaments I would reduce the speed on the treadmill and tried to increase the weights I was using. Closer to the fight I would start to increase the speed while trying to maintain the strength gains.

Take my word for it: it will work!!! I was never the most technical guy in the ring or on the mat. But I was always know to be one of the strongest and most conditioned.

Thank you for great question!

Let me know if there anything specific you want me to go over.
