UWBadgers.com caught up with assistant wrestling coach Kyle Ruschell after recently completing World Team Training camp in Colorado Springs, Colo. The USA Wrestling world teams held training camps at the Olympic Training Center in preparation for the world championships in Istanbul, Turkey in September.

What is World Team Training camp?

The World Team Training camp has the top wrestlers in freestyle in the nation come to train together in Colorado Springs.

What is your training schedule like?

My training schedule is pretty similar to the guys. I am on the mat with them every day and working out when they do. I also travel to get freestyle instruction of my own. 

While I was out in Colorado Springs we had two workouts a day either wrestling twice, a lift and time on the mat or a run and then time on the mat. 

What did you learned at camp that you will bring back to Wisconsin?

I learned new technique and how to attack certain positions. While I was out there I also picked up how to get my point across to my wrestlers. By being part of the practices out there, I recognized new ways to run practices to give the guys in our room a different feel, instead of the same workout week-in and week-out.

Did you ever attend World Team Training camp as a student-athlete? If so, how is it different attending as a coach?

I did. While I was out there as a student all I looked at was new technique for me. Now when I go out there I watch every time a coach is doing something so I can bring it back to Wisconsin. Also, I never really paid attention to the flow of practice and how it needs to be planned out so you're not just bouncing all over the place.

What else have you been doing this summer?

This summer I have been in Wisconsin working with the guys, training for the Olympic trials in April and coaching wrestling camps.

What are you looking forward to this year at Wisconsin?

I am looking forward to our young guys stepping up with opportunity. These guys work hard and I know how bad they want to succeed. I am excited to help them reach their goals.
