Supplement Plan for BJJ Competitor


#1

I have a few BJJ (brazilian jiu jitsu) competitions coming up in the spring and I was looking for something to help me recover from the 2/3 workouts per day. Normally I have some grass-fed whey and a couple pieces of fruit or a sweet potato post workout, but I don’t feel fully recovered after some of the more brutal days.

I was thinking about MAG-10, but would that alone do the trick or is there something else I should be pairing it with?

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated!

Sure, we have a few better choices for you. First, you may want to read this to get all the sciency background:

<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/supplements/what-you-dont-know-about-workout-supplementation"target=“new”>What You Don’t Know About Workout Supplementation

For non-weight training workouts, <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/mag-10"target=“new”>Mag-10 during and <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/finibar-competition-bar"target=“new”>Finibar before would be a great combo.

For weight training, look into <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma-rtd-24-pack"target=“new”>Plazma or <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/surge-workout-fuel"target=“new”>Surge Workout Fuel. Of course, a Finibar is great too before these training sessions.

You can further adjust how you dose these based on the length and intensity of the workouts.

That article was full of useful info! It’s nice to be able to understand some of the science behind why it works, glad you brought that to my attention.

I’m going to order some MAG-10/Plazma/Surge and see what happens. Unfortunately I’m allergic to peanuts so Finibar’s are out but I’m really excited to try the other supplements.

Thanks again for the help Chris

if you buy Plazma them you dont need Surge… just get Plazma, MAG-10 and FINiBARs.

Chris, isn’t Surge Workout Fuel great for non-weight-training endurance-type activities? I train in muay thai, and on certain days I’ll do two hours of classes and/or tech sparring. I’ve been using SWF during these sessions. Is that not so wise? I figured it makes perfect sense for that.

@Damici, it is, and we’ve also successfully tested Plazma on endurance athletes, even ultra-runners. Plazma is, generally speaking, a superior supplement, but Surge Workout Fuel is still a great, versatile workout or competition supp.
