so football season is almost over, and thats when power lifting starts at my school...

Coach wants me to drop 8ish pounds.
im at 98p right now,
and well, thats right at the next weight division.
He wants me to be around 90 pounds when football is over.

Now keep in mind,
Im 4'8
Im a female,

I really need to somehow get to 90pounds without lowering on my bench,squat, etc....
So in other words, i want to be able to still lift the same and stuff,
i just want to be 8pounds lighter.

i have about 2 and a half weeks to do this.

wow...you are small. super-tiny small. I know, Professor Obvious here, lol.
As for how to lose the weight, I don't know nor do I know if you should. Whatever you decide to do, run it by your doctor first.

Yeah, your coach is asking you to lose 10% of your bodyweight in two weeks? :rolleyes:

Hell, even if you managed to manipulate water retention that might be a bit of a stretch.

I'd say tell him to take a walk and then lift at the higher weight class.

I think in only 2 weeks, its going to have to be mainly water weight. 8 lbs isnt that hard to lose in this regard but for you, thats a large percent of your total body weight.

I wouldn't drop the weight. A 10% loss in weight would be disastrous for your health and strength. Think of it this way, I'm 315lbs. If I lost 31lbs in 2 weeks, would you expect my lifts to b the same? Be safe and healthy.
