Football and Baseball athletes train together and tear it up with some heavy Dumbbell work and fast paced bodyweight training.
The DB training is for the quick lifts and strength, so we crank Dumbbell Snatches and 1 Arm Benches, then a circuit of Bodyweight training: push and pull.
Too many athletes can bench heavy but can’t perform ONE correct push up. This is a BIG problem and if you can’t move your own body I don’t care how much you can Bench Press, it will NOT carry over onto the playing field.

In the recent Bethlehem Holiday Classic, Two NJ Wrestlers clashed in the finals, Andrew Campolattano of Bound Brook and Mike Evans of Blair Academy.
Andrew Campolattano was 100-0 going into the tournament and Mike was a Beast of the East Champion.
Since late August, Blair Wrestlers have been going through specialized workouts as Coach Buxton and I consult on an almost daily basis.
The New program has made the Blair Wrestlers faster, stronger, more explosive and better conditioned.
When the workouts were first implemented, Mike Evans was actually struggling through them. Like anything else, with practice and commitment, he overcame and is now dominating the workouts that are coming his way.
BIG Lesson # 1: Most wrestlers, and athletes in general skip in season workouts and treat it as if it is not important. This is a HUGE mistake, especially if you end up competing against an Underground trained athlete who IS following a time tested system.
Here is some footage of Blair training at The Underground Strength Gym in Edison, NJ…. You can see BIG Mike Evans in there tearing it up as well…..
Another BIG Lesson here is the way Andrew handled his loss. He was upset that he lost, but he did not throw a fit, he didn’t cry or make excuses, instead, he got busy the very next day and went to wrestling practice.
This loss is perhaps the BEST thing that ever happened to Andrew. It will fire him up and push him to even greater levels of intensity, commitment and desire.
Who knows, perhaps Andrew will also make the trek to The Underground, Bound Brook is a lot closer to Edison, NJ than Blair is.
But, for the dedicated, distance doesn’t matter, excuses are not made, only action is taken and desire to win followed by massive action is what builds champions.
Congrats to Mike on this victory, AND, congrats to Andrew for being a true champion with sportsmanship and getting back into the practice room the very next day.

Here’s an 8th grader training at The Underground Strength Gym in Edison, NJ.
Last Spring he broke his wrist and had to get his hand and wrist reset in place. In June, Dylan could barely carry a pair of 36 lb Kettlebells.
Below, he swings an 88 lb Kettlebell and carries a pair of 88 lb Kettlebells!
Dylan’s main sport of focus is Football, BUT, he also wrestles to improve his conditioning, athleticism and mental toughness.
Young athletes should engage in a variety of sports as well as a properly organized training program, which is what we do for the many middle school athletes who train with us at The Underground Strength Gym.
