Holy fuck thatbsounds effective but brutal. There isnt drastic strength loss? Pillar has kinda had a hamd in convincing me that i shoukdnt cut and just compete 220 at my 212. I woukdnt be breaking any records at 198 anyways
I did see guys back at the WPO who used diuretics and zero carb diets for the week. The weight-in was 2 days out for those meets. The following two days it was back to high carbs and even glucose IV's. So they would add 10-15 pounds over the limit by time to lift.
I agree with MikeRN, epson salts should help. If you have a night before weigh-in you should be able to easily gain all of that weight back with lots of liquid and carbs.
