As previously posted on this board, I’m in the process of cutting some weight for wrestling, trying to get down to 145. I started about 2 weeks ago at 155, and now am at somewhere between 150 and 152lbs. I know some of it is water weight, but even so, I am SIGNIFICANTLY ahead of schedule.
My question is this: I want to be as large and have as much LBM as possible in the 145lb weight class. I was thinking, since I have until December 12 to weigh 145 (in the morning, empty stomach weigh-in), I have more than enough time to finish cutting. So what does this mean?
Can I mini-bulk? Could I get down to 145, bulk for 2-3lbs, and then cut it off by the time the season starts?
My strength has maintained the same and in some cases increased on RR&D2.0 (coming off training for maximal size, phase 1, with the 8-12 rep scheme to a 5x5 probably did it). What type of program could I do for 2-3 weeks in-between for a ‘mini-bulk’? I was thinking 2-3 weeks of OVT would shock the hell out of my system…
Anyways, how can I go about mini-bulking? I am way ahead of schedule, and would love to know your thoughts.
Any questions you have, I’d be happy to answer.
