I wasn't cramping during the meet. That stopped around when I started drinking and eating, after making weight. I made weight much later than I intended, but still managed to cram plenty of fluids and food into my body before going to bed. Probably not as much as I normally would've done, compared to the two previous meets, because it took longer to make weight, but still a good amount.
My last one I dont think I ever got my weight fully back on. I need to be me careful and have a better plan as far as what to intake after my cut.
Best meet lifts: 1040squat, 730 bench, 730 deadlift
Best total: 1040-680-730=2450
