Byrd: Meet Report Part 1

I really dont enjoy cutting weight, but honestly its not all that difficult. I simply follow along with the basics of what Brian laid out in his cutting weight ebook, pick you up a copy here.

I started my cut at 297.8 and was very simple with what I did. I cut my carbs down about 10 days out and let a few lbs come off. I started water loading on Sunday, which to me is really the worse part of it all. I cut down water on Thursday and just coasted in to weigh ins on Friday morning. Rather than take anything to help pull the water, I sat in the hot tub and relaxed on Thursday evening and pulled off the last 2 lbs. A good night sleep and weigh in right at 273, I ended up losing a little more than I expected during my sleep. This is both a good and bad thing, but I knew I could make it up with fluids and food.

Directly following weigh in, myself, Jason, and Lisa went to grab food. I had multiple meals along with as much fluids as I could push down.

I had time to get back to the hotel, get some more fluids in me, and a little junk food! I followed this up with some IV fluids

Lunch time we hit up Burger Freak, a place we found online. I went full fatass here and ate until I was about to explode!

We headed back to the hotel, and I got a quick nap in. By this time I had put down multiple gallons of various fluids and was looking pretty pregnant haha! About 5:30 I got with Jason and Lisa and hit a quick fluff and buff to get the blood moving in the hotel gym. We hit up a all you can eat hibachi and sushi place for dinner. By this time I couldnt force down much more food, but I hung in as long as I could. When I hit the bed I was 297 and felt pretty damn good.

Part II will be up tomorrow!
