    In this video (link above), which is pretty long, it features a bunch of wrestlers getting weighed-in naked.

    But oddly it also features them standing on their heads naked.

    Anyone know why?

    Is it a strength test?

    It sends all the blood to your head right before a match so you don't have "such" a crushing hard-on once you start wrestling. Wrestlers do it all the time.

    Looks like they somehow think it'll affect their weight, otherwise, why do it just before getting on the scales.

    Just like the trucker who would stop every 30 mins and bang on the side of his trailer. When asked why he said he was 10,000lbs overweight with a load of chickens and banging on the truck made them fly around and weigh less.....

    I love how many just couldn't keep their hands off of their junk.

    No, wrestling isn't gay...why do you think that?

    It's in order to weigh less.


    On that note, it's sad that you use the Internet to find such videos but not the answer to your question.

    Wow, that's crazy.

    i DID google it, but couldn't find anything. then I thought about asking you guys on here!

    Thanks for the answer.

    Maybe next time I weigh in I'll do it normally then stand on my head for a while to see if it works! Might get me some looks in the locker room though!

    I don't understand how headstands reduce your weight. Where do the pounds go in just a few minutes? But that seems to be their goal, since they immediately get on the scale as soon as their feet hit the ground again. Nice imagery, if lo-res.

    The other amusing thing is that many of the guys, as soon as they peel off their undershorts for the weigh-in, reach for their crotch and give things a shake. And maybe a couple more times while standing in line. I guess it must be a subconscious guy habit (perhaps in combination with being self-concious), that I had never really noticed so much before.
