With the wrestling season now in full swing, following a strict diet and counting every calorie to ensure you make weight for your next competition is second nature. After all, the last thing you want to do is tip the Summit wrestling scale over the limit at weigh-in and let down your entire team.

But staying on track over the holidays can be very challenging, especially since you’ll mostly be on your own and won’t have the constant support of your coach and teammates to lean on when faced with holiday food temptations. Still, you can make it through the two-week break unscathed by following these tips for keeping the extra weight off.

Stick to your fitness routine as much as possible

Though it’s tempting to sleep in, skip a weightlifting session, or dog it on your daily run, doing any of these things will not only set your conditioning way back, but also pave the way for extra pounds to pile up. Keep your metabolism fired up by sticking to your daily workout regimen while on break.

Eat holiday treats in moderation

This is the time of year when cookies, cakes, pies, and eggnog surround you at every event. It can be very hard to turn down these treats, so go ahead and indulge in some of your favorites—as long as you do so in moderation. A slice of pumpkin pie or a glass of eggnog won’t hurt as long as you keep the portions reasonable.

Get in some mat time with teammates

Nothing motivates you to keep focused and stay in shape like putting on all your team wrestling gear and practicing with your buddies. If the coaching staff has not scheduled regular practices during the break, talk to your captains about arranging some mat time for anyone that wants the extra work.

Don’t let a minor setback derail your entire season

What if you simply can’t summon the willpower to drag yourself out of bed at 6 a.m. or turn down that second (or third) helping of turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing? The best approach is to write the incident off as a minor bump in the road and get right back to your regular diet and training program. You’ll be able to work those extra calories off in a few days and be ready for your next weigh-in once competition resumes.
