THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TIME 4 WATER PRO
By Darren Deane From Combat Nutrition
Professional boxer LLOYD ELLETT was scheduled to fight in his 23rd (20w-2l) pro boxing fight 27th May 2017 in his hometown of Brighton.
Lloyd usually walks around between 12st and 12st 7, with his competition weight recently being 11st. As a natural lean athlete sitting at about 12% bodyfat before camp, to make this weight he diets down over on this occasion 8-9 weeks with his nutrition being managed by Dede Deane of Physiques-training. For this fight Lloyd was dropping to 10st 7, a tough ask indeed. The diet was spot on as usual bringing Lloyd to 11st 1lb , 36 hours before weigh in. This is where things get interesting. After being loaded with water (upto 10 litres) , it was Time 4 drying out to make the weight. His schedule was as follows:
Weds – water intake 10 litres
DAY BEFORE WEIGH IN
Thurs 9am – weighs 11st 1
Thurs – water intake – 4 litres Takes 10 Time 4 Water Pro tablets
Thurs – Evening 1 hour light shadow box and jog Takes 10 Time 4 Water Pro tablets
DAY OF WEIGH IN
Fri 7am – weighs 10st 12 Takes 10 Time 4 Water Pro tablets
Fri 8am – Relaxes in an Epsom salt bath
WEIGH IN – 10st 7
After numerous times urinating and actually sweating while doing nothing Lloyd makes weight.
Time 4 Water Pro have played an instrumental part in helping Lloyd make weight. I would however advise that you don’t cut your water out like most combat athletes do the day before a weigh in. This is a very strong natural product that WILL cause dehydration, so we strongly advise that you keep you water to 1 litre per 50lb of bodyweight that you carry whilst using this product.
Unfortunately Lloyds opponent pulled out on the day of the weigh in!
