Well this season isn't over for me yet but I'm starting to make plans for next year. I'm going to the state tournament wrestling 215 this year, and next year I want to get to 189. I'm not that strong but I have good cardio and really good technique.

What is the best way to get to 189 for next season? I eat a lot so I'll cut down my caloric intake. Should I keep lifting? If not, are there specific exercises that I should do instead of my full lifting routine? Are protein shakes off limits or are they still acceptable (assuming I can still lift). What kind of cardio should I do to get the weight off?

I look forward to your answers.
