Episode #001: Weight Management 101

May 14th, 2019 by Jackie

In today's episode, I'm talking about everything wrestlers, parents and coaches need to know when discussing weight management, weigh-ins and yes, even weight cutting.  This episode is for high school and college aged wrestlers.

In this episode, I cover:

The true definition of weight cutting and why it's different from the old school process that most wrestlers think of when they hear the term.

When and how wrestlers learn about "making weight" whether you like it or not

Understanding which situations inevitably come up for your athlete that can push them above their natural weight/scratch weight when entering high school.

5 key things every wrestler needs to evaluate before deciding whether they can or should bump down.

The difference between weight management & weight cutting.. and why most wrestlers get these two terms mixed.

What your strike weight is and how to use it as an end point to create a successful weight descent plan.
