I just got some questions regarding weight making especially for the amateurs

1. How do you make weight? Is it simply eating less to shed off pounds?

2. How many months would I need to go down from 140 to 125-130?
Im a begginner and I cant drop weight that fast.

3. could you share to me some weight making techniques that you use?

Thanks a lot :boxing:

no, im now 122 but i can dehydrate to 115, last december i was 135lbs. :D

Mostly it is just soft fats that make u weigh and water and fats contain lot of water, u just have to sweat it out or pee it out and burn the fat.

Steamroom + sauna suit + time. Become friends with a wrestler. It takes a few hours to shed the weight you are targeting. Weigh in, then gain it all back with coconut water and water.

When I'm not training at all I weigh about 140. I fight at 132. I don't even worry about weight. I just train hard and weigh in at whatever weight. I think people focus too much on weight and trying to gain an advantage that way. I just train hard, get strong, work on my skills, and try to gain an adantage that way. I'm positive I can make 125 but I feel good doing what I'm doing fighting in the 132lb class. My last fight I weighed in at 129. If for some reason I weigh in above 132, I'll have no problem fighting at 141.

You really shouldn't have to cut weight like that for an amature fight. Let the weight come off naturally. It's an amature fight, if you need to strain and dehydrate your body you are doing more harm then good.

unless its a major tournament, where you want to be at the lightest weight div as possible, you shouldnt really cut weight

how much training do you do, how long have you been training, what kind of food are you eating. im almost 5'8 and im comfortable around 140-145ish even on the mayweather sr diet of cookies, cake and candy bars. im not in the best shape and so im sitting around 13-15% body fat. your 5'6 and you weight as much as me. your body fat must be at least 20% or you have a lot of muscle weight. eat clean, do your cardio, train hard and if you arent a muscle head then you should sit around the most 120-125. im not as skinny as i was since high school because i put on 20-25lbs of muscle without changing how i ate. unless your doing some serious weight lifting, your diet must be wack and you just havent been training enough. stop trying to find shortcuts and go do your workouts. people are trying to find easy ways out of doing what it takes to be champion which is, HARD WORK. good luck

oh and it should take you less then 2 months with a good diet and training the way you should.

130 is not a weight division in the ams.

125, 132, 141

I work hard in the gym but I think my body fat is high cause of all the chocolates and cookies that I eat. I just cant go on for so long without eating this sweet things. How about you how do you control yourself?
