Required gear for wrestlers
Wrestling requires good protective gear. I would first protect my head with the appropriate head gear, something strong and reliable. You need to keep balance so good shoes should be high on the your list. Apart from that, other required items are kneepads, a wrestling mat, singlet and athletic tape to secure shoe laces for wrestlers-in-training.
The main purpose of wrestling head gear is to protect your ears. Head gear protects wrestlers from injuring their ears from what is referred to as “cauliflower ears.” Cliff Keen headgear features a deep ear cup and is lightweight with a comfortable fit. Good head gear like Cliff Keen Tornado headgear can reduce friction on the mat and come with adjustable chin straps to fit younger people too. Along with youth sizes, various colors like silver, black, maroon, scarlet, navy, orange and others in wrestling headgear is available.
As for shoes, ASICS Agressor shoes have taken over from the Rulon wrestling shoes series and like their name, come equipped with aggressive outsoles that provide the required traction. The tight-fitting upper is comfortable and gives a good fit that makes for a skilled, professional performance. ASICS Split Second shoes are flexible and provide the ultimate traction. The shoes have an open mesh with synthetic leather overlays with padded mesh tongue and ankle liner. Velcro lace cover on the upper tongue provides secure fit enhancing wrestling skills and come in an array of vivid colors.
With the kind of knocks wrestling involves, protective wrestling kneepads provide superior impact absorption. The terry loop inner fabric in ASICS Unrestrained wrestling knee pads keep moisture away and the perforated back panel provides better ventilation. Cliff Keen Impact Bubble Wrestling knee pad is ergonomically constructed with the bubble pad providing a good fit and high impact protection. The orthopedically designed Cliff Keen Air Brace wrestling pads come with sealed rubber tubes to reduce shock impact and are extremely mobile and flexible.
Make sure your wrestling gear is from a reputable brand. Get advice from professionals before you buy your gear. Get gear that fits you and enhance your performance.
