Default ***Lynchburg*** A Cinderella story of NOT making atmosphere - videos up



Guys...

I've had a shocking last few weeks with work and shit and my weight cut has gone bad... really bad!

I'm 12lbs off weight for my bout on Sunday and if I don't make weight it will be the first time ever and it will look really bad... I may not even get to compete.

I've never had this happen before so any help would be sweet!

Peace!

It's a same day weigh-in too...

Lynchburg

Losing 12lb in a week will really **** you up m8 you won't have time to recover with it being same day! Maybe call it off an learn from your experience? If not taking about 5000-8000 mg of vitamin c a day and drinking about 6 litres of water helps you flush water weight out of your body, stop drinking on the friday night (tip from Kerry Kays) just make sure you rehydrate at weight in

Yeah brah...

I'm going to go to the gym about 7pm tonight and get on the treadmill... then hit the steam room and sauna.

I'll do the same tomorrow and then if need be Sunday morning...

I don't know how I'm so far away! It must be stress related from my job

You'll be fine mate , do what your planning to do in the gym , eat very little and quite often , say every 2 - 3 hrs , steamed broccoli , or something alkaline based , green beans etc , keep your metabolism ticking over , because if you don't you'll have an insulin spike in the fight , and you'll pile in

Weigh yourself as soon as you get up Sat morning , and re asses , do not dehydrate yourself for any longer than 12 - 18 hours before weighing in , your body consumes 1L of water an hour , if you've not drank anything for 18 hours before re hydrating / weighing in , you'll need 12 hours to efficiently rehydrate , that should give you just enough time to be nearly fully topped up just as you enter the bout , not ideal , but this is weight cutting

My tip to you is this , if you need to fully dehydrate (which it sounds like you don't being only 12 pounds) to make the weight , go in 3 lbs heavy and tell your opponent it is what it is , or id think about pulling out

Ama rules ................... is there head strikes allowed ???

epsom salts baths
water and sodium loading (too late for you though)
restrict fluids 36 hrs before weigh in
natural laxatives / diuretic - dandelion root is a good one

its all well and good cutting weight but not for your case as its same day weigh in, your going to be like skeletor gettin into the ring unlucky lynch

Who was it took a salt bath in one of the UFC shows? He looked like he was on deaths door before he took it.

Don't go near the steam room on Sunday Lynchy - it will kill your stamina.


Eat unflavoured, unsalted popcorn, lemon water and try and stay on your feet as much as possible whilst sticking to your rest schedule - some more suggestions to the good ones winfella has given.
