    Bullshit, nobody likes Pepsi. You're just a corporate shill.

    @brownsmith76 My 90 pound 12 year old runs with 115lb kid on his shoulders during practice.

    His wrestling practice is harder than PT I had to do in military, 45 mins straight calisthenics followed by 5 mile run.

    Great post. I feel like they are both a mix of aerobic and anaerobic. But totally different muscle groups. A freestyle wrestler is going to have really explosive leg muscles, great muscular endurance in the low back, neck, and the entire posterior chain. Great static strength in the pecs and shoulders, much better grip strength, etc.
    A boxers calves and shoulders will be incredibly developed in an endurance type way, great power in the core and rotational muscles, highly developed traps and upper back muscles because of all the decelerating they do to pull back those punches.
    David Haye talked about this years ago when James Toney fought Randy. Totally different demands placed on the body even if both athletes are in fantastic condition overall.

    Shit thread.

    A boxer would be gassed in the middle of a wrestling match.

    A wrestler would be gassed in the middle of a boxing match.

    A pro soccer player would couldn't slam dunk, and a basketball player could never outdrible a soccer player, etc.

    Fuck you TS.

    Boxing isn't cardio, it is jazzercise where you hug your opponent every 30 seconds and get a break every 3 minutes. Running 50 km straight is cardio.

    See how easy that was?

    wrong sir , you dont need good cardio for wrestling if the guy you are fighting a guy who only has great boxing skills and even much better cardio than you but no grappling at all even if he has decent "WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE ON YOUR BACK ".. he will be your whore with no teeth at the end of the day
    but yeah to be competitive in wrestling you need good cardio well pretty much any sport you need good cardio even golf ( who wants to golf with some guy who is going to sit down on that tiny mini cart ?) but you still have roots with boxing if you lose your cardio you pretty much lose your roots with boxing .. i cant see a drunken boxing guy throwing decent punches

    You made absolutely no sense.

    Cardio for wrestler v. wrestler and boxer v. boxer. Specific enough that "cross-training" won't help that much, although beneficial.
