In your opinion, what's a reasonable amount to cut in the space of a week for a smaller female such as myself?

If it makes a difference, my carbs are already pretty low. (<40-50g most days)
becky usually cuts from about 131 to 123.

suzanne did a cut from 125 to 114s, but it was really hard on her.

5-7% is pretty easy.
up to 10% can be done but is more difficult the smaller you are.

For instance, I can pretty easily cut 10%, about 30lbs, but I'm a big fat guy, Suzanne's 10% made her feel like shit (though she still hit 50lbs of PRs).

honestly, I'd rather stay away from saunas or any kind of heat for a small cut, unless its absolutely necessary. Heat tends to drain a person, whereas with proper salt and water loading/manipulation you can drop upwards of 5% without any heat whatsoever and really...without any effort.

Yeah, I didn't really mean cutting the weight over the space of the whole week...I meant with like water manip, salt, etc.

If I can absolutely avoid it, I'd like to stay out of a sauna if I can.

I cut 5 pounds the day before weigh ins at the WABDL worlds this past year and it drained me I lifted way below my PR's and I will never cut weight like that again. Next comp is mid April and I have already started my cut of about 1.5 lbs a week.

then you didn't do it right, and you're going to be sacrificing training with a caloric surplus for the entirety of your training cycle.

if it works for you good enough I suppose, but there will be guys there coming in up to 10-15% heavy and cutting down to your weight class, doesn't necessarily mean they're going to beat you, but they'll have an advantage.

I would not suggest doing that. You probably just didn't do it right, like Isaku said.

So my last question is, for salt loading...what is generally a good amount to aim for? I feel that unless I have a general amount to shoot for I'm not going to load enough.
