I wrestled long before the NCAA put the 1998 rules in place which restricted how you can cut weight.

So "getting caught" was not an issue.

In fact,the whirlpool I used was at the team trainer's health club.

I wore a rubber suit at practice all through high school and college.
I'm still here,with no ill effects,except i still hate whirlpools.


No ill effects... that you know of.

. If I could go back, I would have wrestled at a healthy weight and concentrated on technique. I was thinking of some of the spirts-professions who cut weight. Add others that I don’t mention now: Wrestling, UFC, Boxing, Judo( I’m guessing), Jockeys, Gymnasts, Dancers-Ballerinas and Models

I pulled 20 pounds to wrestle a 2 time state champ my Jr season, right after football season no less (so my conditioning was garbage anyway). Went from 188 to 168, and it was one of the hardest things I ever did. My reward? A colossal 15-3 beatdown. I was sucked out and weak, the things that made me special (strength/endurance) were gone. After that I never pulled weight again and wrestled wherever weight I was at (178 my Jr year, after that beatdown at the hands of Sinor). 

 

The next year I wrestled 190 but never weighed over 184 the whole season. It was nice not having to worry about weight, and I kinda looked down on the guys who had weight control issues every week. Just move up a weight, damn.

Basically the same story for me though I cut to 155 at six two in my sophomore year.

Damn!  It is that simple?!  I thought 190 and 130 were apples and oranges.

hardest cut was 9th grade. 115 to 98, could get to about 103 and then it was hell sweating anything out beyond that. had my coach for a class 3rd period, lunch after that, and PE 4th period. spent a lot of match days being excused from coach's class, putting on the plastics and about 5 layers of sweats, working through that period, lunch, and 4th period to make weight. coach got me out of PE, 'he's being physically active'

 

fun times

 

senior year I only cut from around 125 to 119. the fact that I was only 10 lbs heavier from start of 9th to start of 12th might hint at some lost growth opportunities from cutting, but on other hand my people aren't especially tall so can't say for sure. I could've made 112 that year but honestly the local comp dictated the thinking a bit....my district had two returning state place winners at 119 and same at 112 so my odds were about same at either weight. I decided as a senior to be relatively fat and happy.

 

coulda gone all in and tried to make 105, but that would have been a lot like 9th grade fun. nah.

I had a teammate who wrestled 103 all four years of high school.  He grew three inches from the end of senior season to graduation.  He did a lot of eating in those couple months.
