Thread: Do Wrestlers "Cheat"?

    There are numerous ways to get around the hydration portion. I heard of a few kids at a DI school that would get a few pounds underweight then go chug a few beers. When they came back to take the hydration test later, they passed because it showed they were "hydrated" when they peed. Other diuretics, such as coffee or anything with lots of caffeine can affect the hydration test.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Pre-hydration testing... kids would dehydrate to make the weight.

    Now, dehydrating and then re-hydrating before the test isn't really cheating...is it? (not be sarcastic)

    Kids using the pediolite / beer method still are weighing heavier at the weigh in than if they didn't have to be hydrated.

    I thought you were going to say the team trainers / coaches didn't test properly or honestly report results.

    We had sme top notch hs wrestlers moving up from their planned weigh class because of testing last season.

    Unless you aren't cutting much weight, it's very hard to be at scratch weight and be "hydrated". Unless you have a trainer that is a hardcore weiner watcher, it is pretty easy to cheat on these tests. Everybody knows that most everybody cheats on these, it's just not openly talked about often.

    I'd hate to be considered a wiener watcher...but like I said earlier, people around here (western PA) took the testing seriously when it was put into place last season.

    As someone on here stated, the vast majority of kids didn't pass on their first few tests. Even guys not cutting were failing.

    They eventually figured out that if you wanted to cut 5 lbs., you would have to cut 7 then rehydrate to 5.

    Still, this kept kids from "drastic" cuts throughout the season.

    I personally know of wrestlers who wrestled up a weight class due to hydration testing.

    I would say I saw the least amount of serious weight cutting last season than ever. (20+ yrs)

    My senior year was the last year before they started hydration tests (I think) but we had fat tests. I cut a lot of water weight before the test so that I would get a higher fat percent and be able to get to the weight I wanted for the season. I don't know if you would call that cheating because I didn't do anything that was against the rules (as far as I know).

    In season, I used plastics during some morning runs and conditioning. I know they were against the rules but it didn't really bother me. I was getting the weight off myself, not using ex-lax or whatever, and if that was what I needed to use, then I was going to do it.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    I can honestly say I never used plastics in college even though I did cut a lot of weight. But I could have never honestly passed the hydration test and been down to weight except for probably my senior year when I wrestled at a much higher weight than the previous 2 years. It still would have been hard that year though.
