I have my first Olympic lifting meet this Saturday - I’m not particularly concerned with what I lift and I’m using it as practice for a meet at the end of June. I’m going to use it as a way to get all the little (but important) things right: making weight, warm-ups, lifting in front of an audience, etc.
Anyway, I weighed myself last night and I was 87.15kg, hydrated and in weightlifting shoes, sweatpants and a T-shirt. I need to make 85kg on the morning of competition. Weigh-ins are at 9:30am and I’ll have to wake up around 8 to make it there in time.
In order to make weight, I don’t think I should eat or drink after 9pm on Friday night. Since weigh-ins are 9:30 Saturday morning and lifting starts around 11, what would be some good choices to eat during this period? Also, warm-ups/lifting will probably last until around 2. What would be some good drinks/foods to consume during this period, if any?
Thanks very much for any help.
