    Default Advice on weight classes!!!

    My name is Rex and Im a sophmore. I wrestled my freshmen year so this is my second year of wrestling. I'm 5-9 and I walk around at 148 lbs and am wondering if I go to 152's or 145's.

    I wrestled today, (saturday) at 152 lbs and went 1-2. Im a good wrestler but these guys were alot bigger and stronger than me. I wasnt pinned at all i just lost on points. Should I eat and lift and put on muscle? Any advice is appreciated.

    Unless you can put on around 4 pounds of muscle anytime soon then go down a weight. Which may be impossible or extremely improbable for which I don't know as I am still learning a lot. I would suggest you go down to 145's, you will have less fat which will give you a better chance.

    I don't think I am wording this the right way. But what I mean is that you will be stronger compared to the 145 weight class than on the 152 weight class and you will have the competitive edge.

    yeah, go down to 145 for the season or until you get more settled in and experienced, or until you can build up muscle for 152. those are the two most competitive weight classes in my opinion, they are all both fast and strong so you have to be a true athlete to compete

    You got it wrong, I can go down to 135 or go up to 140.
