You wouldn't want to loose weight like that.Although possible, its a big strain on the system, and your performance might deteriorate.Try to stay in your weight class throughout the year, so you don't have to loose weight so fast in a short time.Its better to go to a workout thinking about technique than thinking about lossing weight.www.clubkozak.com

pbradish, I drop weight too for competition, to be the higher end of the scale in my weight division. Its, just better to stay at a good weight all-year round, and suffer tremendously at the comeptition day. It can be done, has been done.Lower ones daily calorie,weight yourself everymorning to see progress, and yes you can use a sweat suit to get out more water. I'm just speaking from experience from myself and others I know who could have done better if they didn't have to crash diet.I still believe to work on technique and strength +stamina to beat the competition.It that, gotta get ready for the next NAGA event in Wildwood! Good training!www.clubkozak.com

For the post above, you misread what the guy was saying
The guy was saying the whole point of cutting weight is to be stronger in a smaller weight class.
Thus he was advocating against drastic weightloss as you may screw up on competition day if you do this.
Im just wondering where your planning was? Did you not know you had this competition coming up?
Fighters may walk around 20-30 pounds heavier, but I guarantee they plan it out to lose the weight, so they may only have to cut 5 pounds of water before the weigh in.

that was insane. he did it by wearing a sweatsuit and riding a bike in a suana. It is really bad for you to lose that much weight in water in such a short amount of time though.
for what you said, just cut out calories and add in extra cardio. A few days before if you're still over go with a sweatsuit and sweat the pounds off.

Hey bubba, good thinking staying in a weight class that you feel quick and strong at. I boxed all my life (from age 6-18) and trying to bump up from lt. hvy to cruiser is what ended my career. See I was doing pretty well at lt. hvy. and even picked up a bracket championship in '94 when I was boxing in the navy, then my trainer says"Lets bump you up a class and bring another title to the team. We were really short on 185 punders. anyways I bulked up some and laid off the roadwork.
My fourth cruiserweight fight @186.5 pounds I faught a monster sho had just dropped down from heavy. He caught me right under and behind the chin in the 4th rd and and really rung my bell. My guard dropped and he sailed in a nice overhand right foolowed immediately by a beautiful left hook and I went out. The thing is I was so concussed that I was out for 3 min and 20 sec!
Well they did the cat scans at the infirmary (ggod thing about boxing in the navy, great medical care) and said I had a subdural hematoma induced by seve contusions to my frontal lobe. They pulled my card and basically told me to never fight again if I want to be able to continue to tie my shoes!
Anyways Tat ended my boxing carrer (86and 14 record) so I wholeheartedly applaud you for staying at a weight you feel good at Ill watch for you, slay em all. Good luck and God bless. pwrhngry

in 8 weeks before his second fight with andrew golota, Riddick Bowe lost 50 pounds!!!!!!! Now guys he didnt need to lose weight to amke a weighin, so at most 7-10 pounds was water weight. Did he look sluggish in the ring? yes, but **** thats still at least 40 pounds 8 weeks, 5 pounds a week. He was RIPPED at the end of that session. I think for 2 months you can be a PSYCHo and restrict calories to 1000 and work out like a freak because the body is very resiliant and the msucle loss in that short period of time will be minimal if you have more than 50 pounds to lose.
what he did was eat 1750 calories a day, ran twice a day and did boxing everyday except sunday when he still ran.
