Episode #002: How to Have Your Body Work FOR YOU To Make Weigh-ins Easier
May 14th, 2019 by Jackie
In today's episode, I'm talking about a hormone that is NATURALLY present in a wrestler's body that is going to make or break their ability to make weigh-ins and what your wrestler can do so their bodies work FOR THEM instead of AGAINST THEM when trying to make weight.
In this episode, I cover:
The ONE HORMONE naturally present in a wrestler's body and the role it plays in your athlete's ability to easily shed water weight or not.
How traditional cutting methods negatively impact your wrestler's ability to lose water weight because of this hormone.
Why it's usually easier in the off-season to "make weight" during practice vs during the season.
What and how to calculate your wrestler's strike weight and how to use this as a tool when creating your wrestler's weight and weigh-in goals.
