Just wanted to see if there was any fellow competing wrestlers out there who wanted to share tips etc.
Anything from conditioning to cutting weight before competitions.
Just start of with a question if there are any here.
How much above your weight class do you usually lay on a normal day, and how do you cut the last pounds of water weight?
I usually lie steady about 3-4 kg or 6-8 pounds above my weight class, take in quiet a bit of sodium the week before and cut all salts from my diet the last 2-3 cut down on the water and sit in the sauna with my credit card to scrape off my sweat in 15minutes cycles to cut the last pounds.
Conditioning i like to use heavy hill sprints, tire flips, sledge routine and ofcourse hard sparring.
Not sure if this is going to since i’m spreading old news and techniques, but i’m always looking to pick up more from other wrestlers, grapplers, fighters etc.
