Many dream of headlining Wrestlemania, but few understand the hard work and dedication needed to become a professional wrestler. Almost all top stars have trained in schools and camps with legendary wrestlers in order to learn the execution of key moves, how to put together a match, sell yourself and your opponent to the crowd, and keep fit through physical training and healthy diet. The Professional Wrestler's Instructional and Workout Guide brings readers more than 100 years of collective knowledge and experience from three elite names in the professional wrestling industry, including two former NWA World Heavyweight Champions. Harley Race, Ricky Steamboat, and Les Thatcher share their wealth of knowledge and experience as they help the novice wrestler prepare for the long journey into pro wrestling. After reading this book, the aspiring wrestler should have the knowledge of how maneuvers are executed effectively and safely, the physical conditioning needed to perform them, and the thought process involved in piecing together an actual match. The novice should learn the "psychology" of pro wrestling both in and out of the ring as well as how to find employment on the independent circuit.
