Examined the impact of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Wrestling Weight Certification Program on weight cutting. Results indicated that during one season, team members attempted to lose significant amounts of weight. However, after the first week of competition, many regained weight. The next season, weight loss was not as dramatic, suggesting that rule changes helped break the cycle of weight cutting. (SM)
