Re: staying lean without conditioning

Yes, if you continue to eat like an anorexic teenager, you will probably continue to look like one regardless of your training.

Why you want to weigh less than most women your height, I don't understand, but it's your life.

Anyhoo, if you don't want to bulk up go do whatever it is that skinny kids do.
Yea I made a mistake, I searched after I posted and saw that. Either way, 5'9 and 135lbs is still too skinny and he needs some fat on him if anything. Heck even though I'm only about 5lbs heavier and 1 inch taller I'm going to gain muscle and weight as soon as I sort out my adrenal issues, like 30lbs or so; I think I'm a stick. Don't know why he wants to limit fat gain when he has none, maybe he wants to star in the next Twilight movie

+1 on the shake weight. Great piece of equipment.

135# @ 5'9" is just .... tiny.

i wrestle at 140 lbs and am wrestling D1 next year at that weight class. so i really have to stay my weight and maximize stregnth at this size

if you're currently 125-135 lbs and wrestling 141 D1 next year, you should be walking around at nearly 160 off season. when i wrestled 138 i was about 155 off season.

have you seen the guys at 141 in D1?

here are two D1 141 pounders, they ain't walking around at 125-135 before the season i can guarantee that:

D1? In that case you have a strength & conditioning coach that you should be listening to.

Re: staying lean without conditioning

What Michael said. If you wrestle at 140, your training weight can and should be more than that.

I would also guess that you're on the tall side for that weight class, which is probably not an advantage. Gaining some weight, getting stronger, and moving up a class is definitely something to consider.
