strengthening and weight cutting for a dummy
So I have a bout 5 weeks till my second mma fight. im dropping about 25lbs, of fat, to make light heavy, from heavy weight. I wanna keep my strength up, but am afraid to lifting weights since its a big cut. Is there any recommended strength routines to build/keep strength, without getting bulked up? I was thinking hard bag work and grappling, and maybe body weight exersizes, which could also double as conditioning?
2) im also gonna cut some water weight. Ive never done this before. I know to drink aton of water, cut out sodium...should about a week before my fight, I try to cut the water weight? to prepare my body to getting used to it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
