Quick Weight Loss in Sports

Margarita FolkPosted by

A friend of mine goes through these phases to get quick weight loss and each time he does it he is very successful in losing the weight that he wants to. He goes to some of the most extreme lengths to lose this weight mostly because he is on a time limit and he has to get very, very quick weight loss results.

About every three months he has some major kickboxing tournaments in which he needs to drop the weight so that he can go down a weight division. I’m not going to get into the methods that he uses because in my opinion these methods of getting quick weight loss are not very healthy, especially when it is being done over a long period of time.

The unfortunate thing is that this practice is not all that uncommon in the type of sports that require certain weights or appearances, kickboxing, boxing, wrestling, body building, gymnastics and a lot of types of dance.

Although not as extreme as in the sporting profession it happens with the average part of society, we promote quick weight loss and many of us want it, if not for ourselves for someone else.

We get all motivated and start on our new exercise program that promises to give quick weight loss, we change our diet and how long does all this motivation last, for some it is a week or less, some a few months, but for the minority it continues on and becomes a life changing experience.

For the people who last a short time, what happens next, some give up completely resigning to a false comfort of well that’s just the way I am I guess and don’t bother attempting again, or at least not attempting again seriously.

There are others that tend to follow the pattern that resembles the waves of discipline followed by the waves of neglect, there is hundreds of reasons as to why they can’t keep it up, my favorite reason is I’m too busy, I even fall into this occasionally. In reality it comes down to what is most important and then finding a balance between everything.

Anyway no single exercise program is going to make you have quick weight loss on a consistent basis, the thing that will is what you do with that exercise program.
