    Night Before or Morning Weigh In???

    I have a meet on June 21 and there are two weigh-ins, the first is between 5:00 - 6:30pm the night before and the other is 8:00 - 9:30 am before the meet starts at 10:00. I am going to be in the 220lb class. My weight has been fluctuating in the mornings between 219 - 225 and in the evenings before I go to sleep 223 - 227. It would obviously be easier to cut less weight in the morning, but I have less time before the meet. What is everyone's opinion

    It's easy, weigh yourself in the morning for the 5:00-6:30 pm weigh in. If you are 220 just limit and monitor your fluid and food intake and weigh yourself a few times throughout the day. You shold know exactly where you are for the evening weigh in. If you are a little heavy you might not be able to eat or drink anything that day. Use some tricks like a suana suit, every powerlifter should own one. Or make a sauna room in a bathroom with a hot shower and a towel at the bottom of the door to trap the steam. You'll be fine. Once you make it, have at it and eat and drink until the cows come home.

    Agreed. Just weigh yourself the night before.

    I very rarely cut weight anymore, but when I do, I weigh in as early as possible.

    What are the best foods to eat the night before for energy? Chicken and pastas?

    Have you made weight already? IMO the best carbs to eat the night before are slow digesting carbs. Things like sweet potatoes and oatmeal are great. That is if you have already made weight.

    I've always liked Pizza to replenish on after weigh-ins. It's got a little bit of everything to replenish. Carbs, Protein, Fats, Sodium. I'll drink pediolite if I had to drop much water, or gatorade type drinks if not. I'll have a slice every hour or two until bedtime. If there's any left I'll have it for breakfast or find a breakfast bar and eat a good variety of stuff until I'm comfortable. Don't stuff the morning of the meet. Good luck!
