You need not listen to any particular type of music. Instead, listen to songs that you like; they will  for sure make you feel good. So, find out some music that calms you or even inspires you and listen to it prior to your local wrestling tournaments.

3. Defend What You Have Built
In other words, take care of your body and skin. Skin infections, unfortunately, are commonly found in the wrestling community solely due to the nature of the sport. A wrestler is prone to mainly three types of fungal infections: Ringworm, Jock’s Itch and Athlete’s Foot. None of these infections should be ignored. Any type of infection can put an end to your wrestling career. Therefore, make sure that you protect yourself from such harmful infections.
Ideally, you should shower prior to and after your wrestling tournaments only with an antifungal soap such as Defense soap.

4. Stay Hydrated
Definitely this will be the last thing on your mind when you are thinking of getting ready for tournaments. This, in particular, is often an overlooked aspect of preparing for matches. When you are in stress, your body will respond to that stress by frequently urinating, which will rob the body of the necessary fluid. In addition, even the warm up sessions will make your body sweat, which too will release fluid from your system. In order to maintain proper hydration levels of your body, it is beyond doubt that you need to drink enough water. Drink at least 12 ounce bottles of water per hour.

5. Don’t Forget to Have Fun
Come what may, you need to enjoy the sport. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is by being overly serious and forgetting to have fun. If you stay too hard pressed on yourself, if you get very boringly focused, then you are likely to start feeling nervous. So, remember to take it easy and have a bit of fun.

Preparing yourself for the wrestling tournaments in the right way will invariably help you to stay in the right shape and mind. With the right tactics, you are bound to be winning your matches and standing on top of the podium as an unbeatable champion. Good luck!
