    hey so I competed in 149 blue belt last week at the diamond state games and won my division. Went 2-0, so it was small...

    anyways the funny thing was this time, the weigh in was friday but competition days were saturday/sunday. Normally im not used to different day weigh ins, so I spent all of friday in the sauna and went from 161 lbs to 149.9. Didn't compete saturday because of class in the morning (which was the day of the no gi tournament) and only did gi on sunday. The morning before i competed, I weighed myself naked and was exactly 158 lbs.

    Just curiously, how much weight do you guys normally cut for tournaments? And how heavy are you afterwards?

    oh and before anyone asks, i don't have the video because my friends camera broke that morning. No idea why... but I won the first by points, second by rear naked choke.

    I'm in the big boy class. so I don't worry about cutting, but back in the day (HS) it was normal for me to cut 12-15 per competition and gain back 7-8 in water weight.
