    am 163 lbs, 14% bf.

    In the fall the wrestling weight classes are 157 and 149 and 141 (that I want to make.) I know for sure i can make 157 with very little work. 149 not sure about, and 141 seems impossible.

    But if any of you guys are experienced with weight cutting, and think it is possible for me to cut to 141 some how, please share how it can be done safely.

    Cutting to 141 seems like such a waste. :wtc: How tall are you?

    if you're 163 @ 14% i'm sure you can get down to 149 easily. At 141, i doubt you'd have enough strength to wrestle.

    yeah... i'm wondering how my strength would be at 141. I really can't even imagine being that light. I am like 5'6 1/2" right now.

    well, i'm your height.


    couple months ago i was 152, now i'm 133.

    none of my lifts dropped, bench/squat actually went up. things should be similar going 163 - 141.

    just keep lifting, raise weight & lower volume, and keep protein at 1-1.5 x bw and your strength should be fine.

    actually i was going to suggest psmf.


    i just finished 4 days of psmf. lost 2-3 lbs. this was after a plateau where even going down to 1100 cals a day wasn't giving me results anymore.

    wasn't too bad, except for keto-breath. i had sugar free jello to keep me sane. tomorrow i'm doing a 5 hour dirty refeed. pancakes! :yum:

    here was my fitday for today

    Brolli, will your school allow you to cut water? With my college a new rule went into affect where we had to take a pee test before the match, and it had to be light yellow/clear color, if it was dark then they knew we cut water to make weight and we would have the choice of being disqualified or getting bumped to the next weight class. 20 pounds is a lot of weight though, dont drop to much or you will loose your strength and endurance, i would only drop 10lbs. max.

    you have a lot of time to cut...with that bf, i don't think 141 is impossible..but 149 is highly likely. if you feel like you're killing yourself, just stay at 149
