    I dont understand why you guys take it so seriously, if I were you I wouldn't worry about weight and cutting and all of that. It's not like you're competing at the nationals or anything. I'd just focus on getting in as many divisions as you can for that day in all the weight classes you can.

    Well, for me, it's 135 and down or 135 and up at all but Pan Ams and Mundias. So I kinda need to if I want to compete in more than one weight division, because obviously I couldn't weigh heavy and do both.

    .

    I'm terribly out of shape and I would do 6 instead of going up. Plus I think weight cutting builds character

    I have cut up to 20 pounds before but its a pain in the fucking ass. Usually 10 - 15 is do able for me. I try to cut down 5 pounds of fat when im within 2 weeks of a event. From there a natural laxitive will drop some weight for me and then what evers left ill sweat it out
