Most aspiring wrestlers are trained at a pro-wrestling school. The standard workout regimen includes: chest (bench press), delts (barbell press), and legs (calf raises) coupled with a healthy diet.

As a wrestler in high school I chose to run daily to keep up my endurance. Working out in the weight room was good for physical and mental preparations. Calisthenics such as push ups, sit ups,running in place, and jumping rope are good for a cariovascular workout and keeps mucsles loosened up to prevent pulled muscles and back strains.

Wrestling is a very hard sport to train for because it requires equal parts speed, strength, stamina, & a massive amount of technique as well. I recommend a lot of body weight exercises to increase body awareness as well. Once he learns some moves, lots of drilling will help, too.

Any good wrestler should do lots of cardio, you need the stamina for sustained effort. After cardio you should focus on strength building, especially of the upper arms and lower legs. Finally flexability is vital, pilaties and yoga are good investments for a wrestler to make. Remember, don't over do it and cause an injury.

Get them grappling for fun on mats, and get his cardio up (jogging, sprinting, etc. ). Have him hit the gym, and do a lot of weights (upper and lower body).
