Gunter, Joseph C.
Author Joseph Gunter takes a look into the world of weight cutting by examining the effects and risks of this dangerous, but accepted, part of wrestling. One of the world’s oldest sports has gone under some much-needed renovations in its rules and regulations. These rules and regulations were formed in response to the three deaths of the wrestlers that died trying to keep up the long tradition of self-sacrifice that wrestlers have identified themselves. This research study will examine the physiology and psychology behind extreme weight loss techniques. In addition, it will examine why it has been found that it is more beneficial for wrestlers to slowly reduce their weight, rather than the rapid weight loss methods that have been practiced in the past.Gunter, Joseph C. is the author of 'The Effects and Risks of Extreme Weight Loss on the Body of a Wrestler: A Report of a Senior Study', published 2007 under ISBN 9781424193455 and ISBN 1424193451.
