i would do a barbell circuit focusing on core, very high reps for time, 30 reps at least to test your lactic acid threshold, couple that with HIIT and on of slow days long distance running.

Check out the Team Quest routines, i have some posted, mostly marked attn:speedkillz randys routine or something like that.

oh freestyle wrestling...my first love. The best exercise you can do for wrestling, is wrestling. My team practiced 4 days a week. So we wrestled hard, four days a week. Along with that i was trying to run as much as I could which would very between 3-5 times a week cause i was still in school.
But also i would do HIIT. and i would do it in the way where i would simulate a match. So i would sprint hard for 2 minutes, light jog for 30 seconds, hard for 2 minutes, light for 30 then sprint hard for the last round for another 2 minutes, and then cool off.

For muscle durability i changed the way i lifted, it wasn't just for size anymore but more so for strength i.e 5x5 rep ranges, dropped stuff like bicep curls and added in compound lifts. For endurance i worshiped, dreamt, wrote about, thought about and lived by bodyweight exercises as i still do now for boxing. So a thing i did is i made a circuit between 3 exercises. Push ups, Pull ups and bodyweight squats. so you'd chose a number of reps for each exercise like 8-12 and go through the circuit 8-10 times depending on what type of shape your in.

You may want to try a high intensity low rest approach to weight training....I use a lot of body weight excersices with high repititions and low rest to keep my heart rate elevated to about 65-75% during a 45 min workout....if you are interested let me know and I will post one for you....

You should pick wrestling or boxing then train accordingly. I've done both and they both deserve to be full time sports. You'll be OK in both of them, or potentially great in one if you focus.

Here man print this out..........any questions just ask.....This is no BS athlete training, not for a beginner and definitely not easy......

Each group of 3 or 4 excersises must be done right after the other, once completed rest 45 seconds and repeat 2 more times (for a total of 3). Then, move to the next group....Train one body part 1x per week in the beginning....it took me 1 month before I could train them twice.....Good Luck:ugh:
