Competition preparation (losing weight)

The National nogi competition is in 10 weeks time which is Saturday 19 March 2016.

If you want to to lose weight for the competition, I suggest you start dieting right now.

It is too stressful to start losing weight a week before a competition.

The last couple of weeks before the event should be about drilling and cardio instead of worrying about calories.

Official weight categories from the NZ grappler website
