losing weight and cutting weight for 155lbs
hi, iv been training MMA and muay thai for around 3 months now, an im enjoying every moment of it, an whiel im not in any particular rush to compete as im enjoying learning ect, im will be looking to compete maybe in 6-8 months time.
i am however wondering, what sort of weight class id look at competing at.i currently walk around at around 5ft10 ,170-173lbs and last time i had a check, i was at 14.5% body fat.
now i understand that generally fighters compete at the next weight class lower than natural weight.as im quite short an stocky, i see the 155lb ers at my gym, an i think i would have an advantage fighting at that weight, rather than the 155-170.
im basically wondering, as i also have a fairly poor diet regime(which im currently addressing last few weeks an from now on), isit conceivable to lose enuff weight naturally, to leave a fairly easy cut(through dehydration/saunas ect leading up to fight) for me to fight at 155 in 6 moinths time??
sorry for the long post, but lookin forward to replys an ideas!
