Can you not recovery quickly though from the cut.
E.g. Cut 5-6lbs of water for the weigh in, then over the next 24 hours just eat a ton load of food and replenish yourself?
My numbers on the last competition was:
Squat: 180kg (396lbs)
Bench: 115kg (253lbs) - I could have done more I think
Deadlift: 190kg (418lbs)
**TOTAL: 485kg / 1069lbs **
My training since that competition has been really bad. Had a bad hip, and some lower back issues. It's a bit better now, but I've barely lifted anything heavy since, and anything on the deadlift feels heavy.
Not sure if that sort of thing is normal following a competition
