I thought it was obvious I was talking about the dangerous type of weight loss. A kid who weighs 152 and wants to cut four pounds to stay in that class for a matside weigh-in tournament? Only in extreme circumstances is that a big or dangerous cut.
And FWIW, I had an athlete lose 41 lbs. last season. We did it because we created a healthy nutrition and training plan that worked effectively. You can find reasons to feel sorry for my wrestlers, but having a bad understanding of wrestling isn't one of them.
