Now that competition season is in full swing, I've started to focus on tightening up my diet, strength and conditioning, bodyweight, and my overall BJJ game.
After every tournament, I always evaluate my performance with my coaches. This week I analyzed what happened on the mat during the match that prevented me from executing my game plan at my last match.
My first competition of 2014 didn't go as well as I had hoped, but I gave it my best. I also got a sponsorship this week, which was great news!
For the first time in a few weeks, I had a solid training week with no injuries, illness, or schedule conflicts. I increased the intensity this week to prepare for my upcoming BJJ meet.

I missed my most important training day again this week due to weather, but finished off the week strong with some good weight lifting and BJJ sessions.
Due to sickness and the New Year, my first athlete journal entry is a bit sparse, but I'm planning to get into action to prepare for my first competition of the year.
