Weigh-ins should  be an after thought

The Roman Protocol is a scientifically proven strategy that has helped hundreds of high school and college aged wrestlers make weight WITHOUT starving, spitting, sweating, saunas, salt baths, diuretics, abolene or doing dozens of hours of cardio each week.

How Traditional Cutting Hurts Your Wrestler:

  • They're constantly fatigued and feeling weak during the day
  • During the season they have difficulty focusing during class
  • They suffer from extreme mood swings & irritability in season
  • You get text updates with their weight before & after bathroom trips
  • They spend 20+ hours per WEEK obsessing about their weight
  • They isolate themselves after practice to avoid snapping at anyone

Why Oldschool Fails

Starving to get down to weight induces fatigue and eats away at a wrestler's muscle mass and strength.  When there's not enough energy coming into the body, it pulls nutrients from muscles to survive.

Losing fluid using traditional cutting methods pulls EXTRACELLULAR water from the body.  This is the same fluid the body uses to regulate organ function and health. For every 2 lbs of extracellular water weight lost, the bodies heart rate increases by 8 beats per minute.  When we steal extracellular fluid from the body, it's dangerous and leaves wrestlers feeling weak, fatigued and unable to focus.  

This is Why The Roman Protocol Was Developed

The Roman Protocol is an alternative weigh-in strategy that trains the body to release INTRACELLULAR water.  By using this process, wrestler's are able to lose a minimum of 3 to 6% of their total body weight WITHOUT starving, sweating or dehydrating for days on end.  

Because The Roman Protocol manipulates intracellular water:

 Wrestler's don't experience the fatigue, strength loss or dehydration symptoms that come with traditional cutting methods.

They get all of the BENEFITS of being able to make weight easily WITHOUT any of the nasty side effects.
