Time 4 Nutrition sponsored and www.physiques-training.com athlete LLOYD ELLETT was scheduled to fight in his 23rd (20w-2l) pro boxing fight 27th May 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 10litres) , it was Time4 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 Nutrition Water Loss tablets
Thurs – Evening 1 hour light shadow box and jog Takes 10 Time 4 Nutrition Water Loss tablets
DAY OF WEIGH IN
Fri 7am – weighs 10st 12 Takes 10 Time 4 Nutrition Water Loss 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 Nutrition Water Loss 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!
