How prevalent is weight cutting in the amateurs?
Same day weigh-ins. Right now in my high school wrestling season and have to cut 8 or 9 lbs the day before a competition twice a week (school vs school meet on Weds, tournaments on Sats).
Thinking about pulling this off when I go back to boxing after the season. Have had 4 boxing matches so far but never cut weight and am currently 25 lbs over my boxing weight class (165 lbs, now 190 lbs). Thinking of dieting down to 175 lbs then just cutting 10 lbs before every fight. Thing is I'd imagine the fact that I'll be getting my brain rocked would make it 100x more unhealthy.
