    So...have you ever watched an event or the Ultimate Fighter? It's talked about so much on both how fighters can be drained after the dehydration.

    Equipment: Sweat suit and a ymca member ship to go to their sauna.


    Plus do not go dehydrate yourself just to lose weight for the hell of it, seriously,unless your going to have a fight the next day and have to weigh in the day before. Then don't do it unless you plan on starting your re-hydration as soon as your done weighing in for a fight. Because I can't tell if you would do either or unless someone told you not to...

    Watch The Ultimate Fighter Season 5 episode 5 and skip to 19 minutes in and watch till around 27 mins in. You will see why I say this man...although Gabe was a puss lol, but yea.

    That's what I don't get with boxing and wrestling and the likes. Judges require fighters to weigh in at a certain weight to make the class knowing full well that the same fighter/s will be at least 10lbs heavier for the fight after they've re-hydrated themselves. It seems pretty pointless not to mention unhealthy for the fighters. I understand that the fighters need to be roughly the same weight for it to be fair fight but still.

    They use diuretics, water deprivation, saunas and cardio.

    Sure some mma fighters and boxers have been known to lose 15 pounds of more for weigh ins and they do it in as little as 24 hours. But it isn't exactly safe, even with the professional aid they have. And it is only temporary they start regaining that weight immediately after they are weighed. Thats why fighters often look bloated on fight day in comparison to the weigh in

    It is very very very dangerous to cut so much weight in 24 hours like they do in MMA. My friend knows UFC fighter Jake Shields who had to cut so much weight, it hindered his performance in the Octagon, although he won the fight. They lake laxatives, use saunas, do crazy cardio with garbage bags or cardio "cut suits" to sweat it out. The also look weak and gaunt at the weigh ins for those who do it correctly. They deplete there electrolytyes something fierce.

    You don't hear about it because it's usually worthless and it's a big part of why people aren't supposed to weigh themselves every day and extrapolate their findings into meaningful fitness information.

    Also, assuming an athlete is generally well-hydrated as compared to the average person, their body is cycling through water faster rather than holding onto it. This is also effected by the kind of things they're eating so they can lose a lot of water fast just by ceasing their usual maintenance.

    Perfect example of this would be Anthony Johnson who fought lastnight. He was walking about at 230lbs 10 weeks ago. When training camp starts, they change up their diet and lose fat. Whatever they can't lose before the weigh-in, they cut by not eating or drinking until after the weigh-ins and also cut their water with dehydration.. He was able to cut down to 171lbs.

    I've had this convo with my bro before. All they do is stop drinking water and cut out carbs so they now have less water and glycogen weight. As soon as they drink and eat carbs again there weight goes straight back on, it's temporary not permanent.

    A man training to be a soldier recently died by doing this.

    He was on something crazy like 800 calories a day, running all the time, and they were telling him to purge on top of it.

    Of course it was over a longer period, but still. I wouldn't do it after seeing that.

If they aren't within a couple pounds the night before weigh ins they cut food and water out completely and workout in a sweatsuit for a few hours to encourage dehydration. If that doesn't work they cycle between the sauna and working out until they have made weight.

    After making weight they immediately rehydrate with pedialyte. They also eat a lot of carbs to replenish their blood glucose and muscle glycogen. By the time of the fight they have put back on 5-10lbs.

    The reason people don't do it is because it isn't a fat loss plan. It is a weight loss plan.
    it also burns alot of muscle to my understanding .. the conversion of protein to glucose as the body fights the entire process the whole way... at least to my understanding?

    its for making weight and its not the healthiest thing to do either. after they do that they eat and drink as much as possible to refuel their body. its just water weight its not losing fat

    Kinda simple for MMA fighters to do this b/c of water weight. I use the Kutting Weight suit and you can drop 6 pounds of water weight in a two hour lift-run session. They aren't actually losing fat or muscle, but just water weight. This is why some wrestlers are turning to Kutting Weight or sauna suits b/c when they need to drop 5 lbs in two days for weigh-in they just run off water weight then gain it back.

    Water weight. Think about how much of your body is actually water. Remove sodium, drink water like its going out of style, do a ****-ton of cardio in a sweat suit, sit in a sauna, and the cut liquids completely 24 hours out. Definitely not good on yer kidneys(horrible actually), but you'll lose a ton of water weight fast...probably 5 pounds on just the low end. Happy sailing. Hit me back if ya have more questions yeh. Cheers

    how is it possible ?
