Effective Weight Cutting


#1

ok here's the question....i normally don't cut weight for my grappling tourney's...basically just go for whatever...and not care...but this tourney has some jacked up weight classes so i decided to cut down a lil bit. i started at 194 about 7 weeks ago..and right now im floatin around 185 in the morning or so..so i didn't give myself enough time to diet down wisely...

anyways i need to get to 179lb by sunday....

anyone have any tips...i live w/ a former wrestler and he is tryin to give me a few tips, but id like a few more reliable sources

Cut out all salt from your diet. Stop drinking. Have some tea before you go to bed, and I sometimes even recommend a shot of whiskey as well, to aid sleep and as a further diuretic. The weight should fall off.
