Have a meet coming up and I’m heavier than I have been in the past. Last two meets I went from 205-206 to 198. Both times I did it by water cut, and it was easy. I didn’t change my diet, just 2 gallons a day for 3 days, then a half gallon day before weigh in and the weight dropped. I did have to sweat out 1 lb for the last meet since in the morning I clocked in at 199. So, it seems like a simple water cut for me has as a working limit about 8 lbs.
These days I’m 213 (morning) and 216 (during the day). I don’t think a water cut will get me where I need to be. How would you go about making weight? Carb manipulation and water loading?
