I'm competing in my first tournament this Saturday. I walk around at about 216. The weight class I had planned to compete in is super heavy (200-215). I often weigh over 215 so the last week or so I have been dieting good and increased my cardio to make sure I come in at 215 or under. I was able to get my weight down to about 212. I hit the sauna last night (for under 15 mins) for a little experimental cutting and was able to cut to 208 without much problem. I woke up this am at 209. Keep in mind that I have never cut weight before. I'm seeking advice form those who have. 1. If I weighed in at 209 this am do you think it is possible to cut to 200 by Friday afternoon between limiting caloric intake and another cardio/sauna session? 2. I am weighing in Friday afternoon and the tournament is Saturday. Will this be enough time to rehydrate and feel human again before the comp? I need to make this decision now bc I either want to go full throttle to 200 or eat some fricken food. Any advice would be appreciated.
