Strong mental toughness leads to good wrestling technique, tactics, strength, conditioning, flexibility, recovery, and nutrition. In this lecture, legendary coach Dan Gable presents the importance of mental toughness with on the mat demonstrations and through motivational messages. Coach Gable takes you through a practice session detailing at least five drills in the following areas: Warm-up, standing offense and defense, bottom position, top position, and recovery/conditioning. The drills presented will give your athletes an attitude that "I can take anyone down at anytime . they can't take me down . no one can ride or turn me . I can control anyone." In short, complete mental toughness! Gable credits all of his success on the mat - both as an athlete and as a coach - to strong mental toughness. With this video, your athletes will gain the mental toughness needed to be successful on the mat and in life.
