The purpose of this study was to investigate the realities of weight reduction of Judoist. Seven healthy students were used as the subjects, who all would participate in weight-classified game a week later. In this report, we dealt with weight reduction means, energy intake and subjective symptom of fatigue. The following results were obtained.
1. Although subject A and D w'ere not necessary to reduce their weight, they tried to do weight reduciton a little to control their body weight daily. Subject C, E and F tried to reduce their body weight by means of cutting their food intake down a little, running, taking a bath and/or daily practice of Judo. Their final weight losses were rangesd between 3 and 3.7%. Subject C already reduced to be 4.1% weight loss in the morning on the official weighing day. Subject B and G were necessary to reduce their body weight about 5.8% and 5.0%, respectively. But in the morning on the second day, their body weight increased, so they had to reduce to be about 6.1% and 6.0% weight loss in 3 days, rspectively. Therefore, they had the means of extreme reduction of diet and dehydration with a sauna bath for a long time.
2. The fairly high correlation (r=0.918) was observed between amount of subjective symptom of fatigue and ratio of weight loss in five subjects except subject A and D who were not necessary to reduce their weight.
