    How much do you need to drop?

    I don't know..

    I am 186#, 6 foot, and fit. I only have about 5 - 7 "extra" pounds which I can easily drop in time.

    Middleweight is 170 to 179 and that would be cake for me. However welter is 160 to 169 and I am wondering if I could/should try and hit that. Most of my 20's were spent at 165 and 170 so I don't feel I'd be overly small at that weight.

    So is 16 pounds a lot?

    Last time I made a concerted effort to drop weight was wrasslin in HS...and that was the bottled water & tic-tac diet.



    I never grappled again.

    Obvious things would be to cut down your carb intake (including beer) and running more.

    I dropped 10kilos by running in a sweatsuit, wouldnt really recommend it though

    Yeah.. cycling season has started here again. Judging by my weight loss last year I can drop 8 to 10 pounds as long as the weather cooperates and I stay away from the cheesy poofs.

    If I did that would cutting another 5 or so pounds in water weight be hard?

    5 pounds in water isn't that hard to get off, it's keeping it off that's the problem. You don't want to be walking around dehydrated.

    if you can adjust your diet enough to walk around at 178-79 then you'll have no problem cutting it the last week.

    prof, you'll need to drop an average of 2.6666 pounds per week (0.381lbs/day) consistently and at a minimum - it should be manageable unless you are eating crap.

    People have been known to drop up to 4lbs after a hard roll or a hard aerobic activity (.ie. running balls out on a treadmill for 40 minutes.) That's just water... and perhaps a mighty crap.... srlsy.

    I have no clue how this can affect your performance when you go to NAGA, but one sure way to is to cut down your carb intakes in half, concentrating most of their intake during the first half of your day. The last thing you want is to take your carbs at night.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
