I’m competing in a grappling tourney this Saturday. It’s not really a big deal, but I like to win so I might as well come in as strong as possible.
Didn’t really plan on cutting too much weight but since I saw the tourney schedule today, I’m starting to think it might be worth it.
So here comes the part where you help me consider this (thanks in advance):
I weighed 194.4 with t-shirt, shorts, and my mp3 player (no more than 2 lbs, probably less) on today at 6 PM. This is after eating a good amount today.
I have 4.5 - 5.5 hours between the weigh ins and the actual competition.
I know I can easily get under 189.9.
I’m wondering if it’d be worth shooting for 179.9? Think I have time?
I’m thinking hell yea. From what I hear, it takes about an hour to get 3 lbs. of water back and I’ll weigh less than I do now by the time I cut water weight.
What are your thoughts?
Oh, also, what kinds of food should I take between weigh in and competing if I decide to go this route?
