Live vs Drilling

Recommended Posts

.  My wrestlers recently made the claim that an area team "never goes live" in practice, 100% drilling is their claim.  If I tried to do that I would have a mutiny in the room lol.  Anyhow I’m curious to how other teams around the state balance live vs. drilling in practice.

We are probably about 45% "Live" with a lot of it being situational live, so it is similar to a live/dill mix, 30% straight drilling, 15% some sort of conditioning in the room, and about 10% being sort of skill building stuff- spin drills, follow drills, hip heists…stuff like that.

We are probably 75% drilling and 25% live at the beginning of the season.  As the season moves towards the post season those percentages flip.  We also incorporate live drilling which I believe is significantly more difficult than wrestling live.

Live drilling is a little different than what we consider sparring.  Sparring we go about 75% and always move through positions. Live Drilling is something I picked up when Reggie Wright was one of my coaches at IU.  I thought they were miserable and would always prefer wrestling live, hence why we now incorporate them.

You should be finishing at match speed but instead of simply cutting your opponent the guy getting takedown has to roll over and stand up.  Same guy does takedowns the entire time.  We usually go :30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 1:30, 1:00, :30.  The intensity is often dictated by how quickly the guy getting takedown gets up.

Once one guy goes it is the other guys turn.  We will do it where 1 guy does the entire pyramid then the other guy or where we alternate and each guy does the time.

I hope this helps.  It gives the feeling and conditioning of match speed but is also way lower risk of injury.

We did this as well. We did very little conditioning outside the room.
