"With folkstyle state and national tournaments just around the corner, the Tapering for Competition webinar is a great way to gain valuable knowledge before heading into that last stretch of the season. Krista has worked with our World and Olympic level athletes and understands the wrestling environment," said Bickley.

The webinar is designed for the athlete and coach who desire to learn more on preparing for the end of season. The sport of wrestling requires both tapering and making weight for optimal performance.

Bickley believes this webinar has tremendous value for both athletes and coaches.

"This webinar will cover guidelines to help optimize the physical taper by volume and intensity of training while maintaining strength and power," states Bickley. "It will also discuss how to best "taper" food intake through the energy density of food in order to make weight for competition."
