Summer Workout Program Paying Dividends

Iowa State Wrestling RoomMany of you may be wondering what our wrestlers have been up to this summer. The summer months are when champions are made and strength coach Josh Beauregard can attest to that.

“I thought we had a good year, but we can obviously do better,” Beauregard said. “After the season was over I sat down and focused on what I could do to improve and help build off the foundation that had been laid.”

Beauregard, who came to Iowa State in July of 2012 after brief stints with Central College, Drake and William Penn, had a chance to implement his first full off-season regimen. His focus was to make every guy on the team stronger this summer.

“I didn’t feel we were as strong and imposing as we should have been last season and that was the focus of our summer training,” Beauregard said. “I wanted to make sure each guy’s maximal strength was addressed immediately.”

The response from the team to Beauregard’s new plan was well received, as weightroom records dating back to 2004 were shattered and over 120 new personal records were set by the wrestlers in just two short weeks.

“In one offseason of training, basically every outstanding record that has been tracked and kept was broken,” Beauregard said. “I’m really happy with where every guy’s progress is at. There wasn’t one athlete that stayed around this summer who didn’t hit unbelievable marks in their lifts. Each guy got more athletic overall.”

It’s apparent everyone throughout the program has bought into Kevin Jackson’s “All In” mantra and the future couldn’t be any brighter for Cyclone wrestling.
