And the key to losing weight and maintaining the muscle mass you have is to eat healthy, and also aim to lose ~a pound a fat a week by eatin 500 less calories than you burn each day.
I did this my senior year for wrestling..
I went from 238 to 215 in like 3 weeks and gained weight on all my lifts while doing it. i took in 200 grams of protein a day amongst other things with a super healthy diet. and 2 weeks after that i was around 199-205 depending on when i stepped on the scale..
i was a little out of shape at 238 but i turned my body around from a gut to a six pack at 200. i benched 260+ at 200 and did like 230 when i started my weightloss
i have no idea how many calories i was burning a day at practice but i would practice would be atleast 3 hours long of pure hell and then i would run at night for another hour and then lift on my bowflex after. Protein protein protein. I was rarely sore and i was just dropping lbs like no ones business.
