Hats off to you guys who cut weight!

Wow how do you guys do it, making weight? Dehydrating your body to make weight for a fight? My hats off to you.

I don't know how many of you read my intro but I am by no mean a competetive fighter, nor do I have any intentions on competeting.

This past saturday I did a grueling uphill ride in the sun, and for 50% of the ride it was against wind. When I got home and all the endorphines shut off, I realized, I was severly dehydrated and electrolyte deprived. I finally recovered late Monday night.

That was freaken brutal. How do you guys dehydrate yourself purposly? Hats off to you guys, I never want to experience that again. More importantly, how do you guys recover from that?

One does "low intensity exercise" as to not damage stamina under "high intensity conditions"; ie, light but consistent cardio with trash bags in a sauna

Lifting one globe at a time!

Fav fighters
Tito Ortiz
Frank Shamrock
Aleksander Emelianenko
Fedor Emelianenko
Shogun
Phil Baroni

Rep me + and I will return the favor.

LOL I didn't mean it literally, like how in your methods. I ment how do you willing put your body in such a physiological state. I understand we go though many pains and misery for our sports but wow. Dehydration is definitly not the good pain.

I was making the point that it is HOW YOU DO IT. There are good and bad ways.

Secondly, it's just mind over matter. Same as a fight. It'd be easy to quit when you get popped in the face, but you gotta keep goin' because that's what separates good from great.

and I hate you...

I have to measure every bit of food and cardio my ass off to cut up. Took me 3 months to drop 20LBS. To get that dry cut look I pretty much have to live in a sauna.


bah....

When i do it i drink straight after the weigh in. and also eat a tiny bit because i starve myself aswell but not to much or i will get cramps etc when competing.

Heh i dont, i just run 2.5miles every day, and lift 3-4days a week, along with a healthy diet rich in protein.

i run about 207lbs on my frame normally. i might not be a ripped body builder but i can handle myself in a fight better than most guys.
