Today Ari had his most intensive workout on the mats in the past 3 weeks.  After suffering a shoulder injury 3 weeks ago while training in Prague, Ari has been in the process of strengthening and rehabilitating his shoulder in preparation for Beijing.

In an effort not to risk re-injury, the technique training on the wrestling mats has been kept to a minimum because of the unpredictable nature of movements in wrestling.  When recovering from injury it is important to progress from stable to unstable exercises followed by the sport specific movements in training.  With the nature of wrestling to pull and throw your opponent off guard, this type of training possesses the largest and most uncertain movements with the highest risk of re-injury.

Ari is excited about being the final stages of his rehabilitation and is getting is sights focused on Beijing!
