    Dehydration / dropping water weight to make weight

    I have a few clients who need to drop weight for a weigh in shortly.

    I'll be doing my own research of course into the process and what we can do safely. It's a 1 off thing, we just need to get the number on the scales as low as possible. Anywhere from 190lb guys to 130lb females.

    It's only 3 people, and they have all been training for some time, 2 are in a '12 wk challenge'.

    How would you do it? Timeframe, pre-loading before depletion, sauna's any good, mineral inclusion/exclusion and timing?

    Want to go hard, without risking long term effects.

    Anyone with BB contest prep or fighter weight drop your input would be appreciated especially.

    Thanks.

    I've meet a couple of martial artist who would do that on fight day to drop some weight.

    BB Competitors do the same. Definitely follow your plan slip but add the sauna in and that will help too.
