Can anyone give me some advise on how to help a high school weightlifting cut about 5 lbs before the season starts to get into a certain weight class? He weighs about 144 and needs to get into the 139lb class. He has about 2 and a half months to do it maybe 3, but i dont want him to drop too much strength, i see the olympic lifters cut more weight than that easily, just wondering how they do it?
