Each morning the wrestler in India wakes up at 4am for their early morning run followed by strict vegetarian diet, of almond paste, milk, eggs and chappati. This is followed by preparing their training area, a mix of clay and ghee, which is a gruelling strenuous work in itself – raking and pulling a heavy sled type devise. The training continues with basic callisthenics, yoga and ancient strength tools which have been popularised by strength coaches such as Matt Fury, Scott Sonnon and Steve Maxwell. Today I am following my own adaptation of such a a workout.
