    Or you could spend that running time doing HIIT and, you know, really increase your cardio.

    The thing that I always ran into when I was competing and coaching was gassing out. The more running I did, the better I got in the ring (point fighting and boxing). Once you gas out, the game is over.

    Okay, I'll stick to creatine and whey protein. Also I think now would be a good time to take up running.

    I'm sure you'd rather hear from more experienced martial artists, here.

    Like are there any other supplements I should look into.
    Don't throw money at something you, me and everyone else knows is going to provide minimal benefit just for the sake of, what will essentially only be, a feel good in your belly about how much you did to prepare for this next competition. Creatine and a multi is understandable, and protein powder if your diet calls for it. You're not a pro and have at least one greater priority (college), so I wouldn't worry too much about supps.

    I know I'm usually blunt, so at the risk of sounding like my normal, sarcastic self: ask your coach. You've already been given all the general advice (train more, eat right, don't party, rest...), and your video didn't provide much more than evidence of your opponent's skill level.

    FWIW, I'd focus on adding a throw or two that doesn't require you to shoot, or at least get better at comboing your takedowns (working a different takedown off of a failed one). I like laterals (not wrestling, similar to yoko otoshi). I believe sambosteve calls it "the pancake" and has a tutorial on Youtube.

    Bullshido: help me athlete better

    After my hilarious failure of an attempt at competition in last weekend's IBJJF tournament, I came away with three main thoughts:

    1. Holy shit I suck donkey balls.

    2. I would like to suck less.

    3. This competition thing is fun and I would like to do it again.

    The competition I am currently strongly considering signing up for is NAGA Germany. It happens near the end of May, which gives me about two and a half months to prepare. I want to compete in the 61.5kg division, and that means watching my diet carefully (I walk around at around 62-63kg when I don't have a severe case of the Holy Moments). I also plan on going from four sessions a week to six sessions a week, and adding creatine to help with recovery. I also am going to be sticking to what I did before the last tournament: sleeping more and going out less. Is there anything else I should be doing to help myself suck less?
