I've been competing in BJJ since 2014, and winning some along the way.
Thinking back though, I never had a game plan.
Then in the Summer of 2018, I decided it was time for a change. Without going into specifics, it wasn't a great year to begin with, and felt like a lot of things were spiraling out of control. So I decided to take control of what I could, starting with my competition.
It was a Game Changer!
Starting with my nutrition and mindset, I noted my bottom line and what I needed to get to my target weight and keep up my performance from those fronts. I was just missing one area.
At the time, I had limited knowledge on incorporating strength and conditioning with BJJ, so I had my training program planned out by @ringo94hk.
Needless to say, the combination of these components made it easier to cope with the weeks leading up to the competition, and it helped me focus and not feel like a headless chicken 🐓.
These days, I believe planning ahead makes a difference in helping anyone achieve their goals.
