I was actually looking for this the other day to ask what kind of food you guys eat before and after workouts, what protein and supplements you guys use. Shit like that.

My gym is having Pan-Am Camp next month:

Find the schools in your area, see who the instructors are, if it fits your schedule, and if the gym is convenient for you to go to. Most gyms have a free trial, usually a class or two. From there you need to get a gi. That's about it for the basics.

http://caioterra.com/2013/01/21/2013-pan-american-camp/



Multivitamin. Lots of complex carbs and lean protein. I use NO Explode pre workout and sometimes pre training, and gold standard whey protein post lifting... but those are mostly for strength and conditioning, not jiu jitsu.

Fish oil is the only thing that I feel a very distinct, noticeable difference when supplementing. I think that is really important for any sport, much more for one where you are getting banged up and joints are being twisted the wrong way.

The most important thing you can do if you are training a lot, like 2-3 times a day hard, is sleep. Sleep between classes, sleep on the mats. It's hard because everyone always wants to talk. GO TO SLEEP. Take naps. Your body HAS to rest and repair.

My diet is generally:
1.Two eggs, one piece of wheat toast, pineapple for breakfast (pineapple is a natural anti inflammatory)
2.Fruit
3. Brown rice, lentils, lean protein (a porkchop, or a piece of turkey or something)
(pre workout drink)
4. Protein shake
5. Brown rice, broccoli, a piece of lean protein, usually tilapia or some kind of fish

I'm currently working my ass off and deciding whether i wanna get heavier for lightweight, or if id like to kill myself and try to make feather again. Regardless, I think I am sitting out Pans, and doing the NY Open and probably Worlds. Hoping to fight MMA again this summer at 145 or possibly 155.

I've spent the majority of the last year doing nothing but learning to pass guard, and now wrestle, and it's taken me a long way.

My school has a free "grappling club". I went after not having rolled for 3 years and didn't embarrass myself, so that was cool.

when i was a freshman(im a 24 year old senior now..), the "jiu jitsu" club was showing throws and submissions and shit. i got really excited to be 4 years into bjj and join up, but now it's a bunch of kids in kimonos that are 5 times their size screaming and shit. there's a fucking prayer at the end of the class too.

One of the schools I am looking at is right down the street from my gym and they have a judo club that is considered the best in the country and one of the best in the world.

That's quite a toss up. A 5'11 frame at 145, are you at all concerned with sacrificing strength?

I did gi for a year, but I gave up on it over 6 months ago when I added some kickboxing into my mix and haven't really looked back. I don't have that much time to train, and to me the gi was less fun and seemed less applicable, so I said goodbye for the time being.

Currently working at a gym, a few of the personal trainers go to a Gracie Barra school and got mats. We normally roll and they teach me and another guy basics a few times a week. I learned some BJJ while i was doing kempo a few years ago. Im super rusty and am currently getting my ass kicked haha. Im going to sign up at the actual GB school soon once i have some extra cash.

I don't think Joe trains anymore. I'm not even sure if he still lives here. Seems to be pretty much business as usual over there, on the surface at least.

Nah. I'm skinny, and I always will be. I was competing at 139, and then 129 when i first started jiu jitsu, and I've done every MMA fight at 135 (although I was vegan for eight years which was part of the reason I was so skinny at that time).

The best I've ever felt was at feather, when I went to Brazil and started eating meat and started lifting.

Lightweight is fine, but when it comes to International tournaments, the serious guys that really work out are fucking strong. Them being strong, on top of being really good makes it tough. The guy I fought at Worlds last year from Atos was the first person to pass my guard in a tournament as a purple belt, which has been almost three years now.

While competitively I do the best at featherweight, without a doubt, the heavier you are, the more fun jiu jitsu is.[/spoiler]

Vegetarian 14 years. Biggest I've been is 165lbs, but that was when I was lifting weights 5x a week, and never doing cardio. I started training BJJ and in a year, dropped down to 145lbs. Started cycling all the time, dropped even more weight. I'm lean as hell, but could definitely benefit from lifting weights again. Just hard to get back into the swing of things.

Finally after wanting to do it for years I started in November and its been the best experience of my life. I've dropped almost 50 pounds, and go as many times a week as I can. Just recently got my first stripe and words couldn't describe how awesome that felt.

Hope to compete eventually but seeing as I just started I'm taking my time and just trying to get in the best shape possible. I never thought it would be this much fun, but its always the best part of my day.
