This article is for the weightlifter, powerlifter, and strongman that have 1-5 kilos/2-11 pounds to cut. Personally I take the quick off and quick back on approach. This means that I try to lose the majority of my weight the week of the meet, and then I try to put it back on immediately after weigh-ins.
