Harvard wrestling still has a few more weeks before they can start team workouts in the wrestling room, so the David G. Bunning ’88 Head Coach for Harvard Wrestling Jay Weiss utilizes several other facilities on campus to get his wrestlers ready for the first day of practice.
Several days a week, the Crimson runs to the Harvard Athletic Complex from the MAC and works out on McCurdy Track and in Harvard Stadium. After a seven-minute sprint on the track, the wrestlers run into the stadium to climb the steps. The grapplers either sprint, crab walk, hop, wheel barrel or use a fireman carry to get to the top of the stairs.
Two years ago, Harvard’s unusual stadium workouts were the feature of ESPN’s Sweat Spot.
