Cutting weight is a highly polarizing topic and we wanted to bring Coach Ben Zhuang on to discuss the research, practical application and the methods related to making weight.
In today’s podcast, our goal was to share ‘good practices’ and provide some guidelines for athletes and coaches to use when they are cutting weight for an event. Give it a listen and be sure to leave a comment if you have any questions.
