  1. #1

    Default How do you cut weight

    Right what's the best ways to cut weight
    And what's the most you can cut

    Iv been told this is a good routine to cut weight

    20 min Epsom salt bath then dry off sweat suit on then
    10-15 mins of dancing about shadowing skipping
    Then a hot shower then another 10-15 mins of dancing about

    Iv been offered a semi pro boxing bout an we weigh in the night before
    The weight class is 54kg flyweight an I'm gonna cut from 61kg does that seem safe ?

    Take the Enty approach: You're already 2kgs under limit. Bingo!

    If you don't know how to cut weight then you shouldn't be cutting weight.

    Chris G is correct, but if you reallywant to give it a go the blood loss technique is really good.

    Yeah blood letting is one of the best ways imo... can be tricky if you get it wrong but YOLO

    Depends if you are 'cutting' from 61kg ie you are 61kg before commencing the water cut. That is not recommended at your weight.

    If you are 61kg now and could lose a few 2/3kgs through diet. Then it could be possible with water loading and carb depleting the week before (google those to find out in depth explanations on how to do it)

    Also with the actual cut, 20/30mins epsom salt bath (with you covered in albolene). Then 10/15mins out, lying down covered in lots of towels. Repeat process as necessary. I would avoid anything like shadow boxing, I can barely stand when I cut weight so I wouldnt want to be moving around too much.

    Also, don't shower. Your body can absorb water in a shower. Again google it. I've read cases of wrestlers making weight before weigh in, having a shower and coming in 400/500g over.

    I usually lose around 2-3kg per hour with the above process.
