Loosin' a little weight for a comp.
Here's my deal, I plan on entering my first BJJ comp on July 23rd. I'm a full time student and I work full time so this is more of a hobby thing for me. I don't have dreams of becoming an MMA fighter or serious competitor. I'd like to enter in the 155lb weight class. I currently weigh around 165 and am 5'11". I'm pretty lean for the most part, my cheapy bathroom scale puts my body fat % at 13-14%.
My search on the subject has yielded two results 1) being loose the weight w/. exercise since i've got the time. 2) Weigh about 10lbs more than I want to compete at then dehydrate for weigh in and rehydrate before the event.
Currently I do BJJ 2x a week at 6AM and FMA 1x a week. I also do stronglifts 5x5 2-3x a week when I can.
I'd like to loose 10lbs naturally over the next month then go back to strength training ala stronglifts. Some advice seemed to suggest bb style routines or bodyweight routines to accomplish my goal. I remember reading some stuff about 20 rep squat routines from Pavel and other sources. Would this be a good route to go?
I plan on tightening up on my current moderately healthy eating habits and excluding beer from my diet for now. Do I even need to change my lifting routine to loose a little? Or should I just eat less?
FTW I did a thread search and found some interesting stuff, and some advice that sounded horrible. Most of the weight cutting threads either turned into a weight loss thread or ended up getting derailed and didn't answer all of my questions.
Here's the links I checked out for anyone else wanting to research the subject:
