How hot is your wrestling room

Recommended Posts

Our room is warm but not hot. Excess heat interferes with their ability to work hard the entire practice. Extra heat does not do anything for conditioning but actually diminishes it as they can't work as hard for as long. And if they get too hot, they lose focus and technique suffers.

I'm long out of high school but our room was hot, it was a small room in an old building built like a fortress. I remember our coach occasionally opening an outside door to get some cool air in and sometimes we had kids from local high schools workout with us and many of them commented on how hot the room was and I know some of them were in rooms that turned the heater up.

 

It wouldn't have surprised me if some days that room was in the high 90s. I welcomed my college's room - old basketball gym so no chance on turning up the heat and a lot of mat space. I do remember some teammates freaking out over how they'd cut weight in a room like that; coach had the appropriate answer, "Cut weight on your own time."

 

From the few high school rooms I've been in since, almost all have been kept at a normal temperature.
