    Have you evaluated your cardio first ? How ?
    My cardio is not that great, in part due to my terrible lungs. I can generally make it through 1-2 intense six minute rolling sessions before completely gassing. Naga Germany is at the end of May, so I have almost three months. That being said, my instructor wants me to compete once before then. My current plan is to use a couch to 5k in nine weeks program, and to spend a bit of time doing circuits of kettlebells, box jumps, and bag work after training.

    yeah, sideways Osoto Gari is hell on the ACL, I know that for sure !
    The depth of hip squats are to the point that the origin of the quadriceps passes the plane of the knee, and they are wider than hip width. The ideal stance for maximum engagement of the posterior chain is 140% of shoulder width.

    I had my ACL fixed, and then could not longer do low/squatting type seionage. Plus, overpronation at ankles put a lot of pressure on my knees so the running thing (which I did for a while) for longer distances (running more than 5 miles at a decent pace is wasted for Judo IMO anyway).

    I don't think much running is really necessary to build cardio (for Judo/Sambo...I'll leave BJJ alone). If done, intervals are better route than just jogging.

    "Normal" running I used to build up a cardio base, but, judo is so hard on the knees/joints anyway I eventually went to bike riding for that.

    My cardio was best when I mimicked the length of a match (in my case, judo and sambo) with varying strenuous activities. I would structure it in such a way that required power/anaerobic movements intermittently throughout, but it was not an interval or HIIT thing, necessarily (as in there wasn't a 2:1 ratio of work to rest).

    Example: 5 min round

    1 min, kettlebell swings
    1 min, box jumps
    1 min, suplexes with throwing dummy
    1 min, bulgarian bag
    1 min, bear crawls

    And then I would pick a sixth activity, so that way each round had a slightly different load, similar to a match:

    1 min, burpees
    1 min, kettlebell swings
    1 min, box jumps
    1 min, o goshi with throwing dummy
    1 min, bulgarian bag

    I would complete 3ish rounds, or however many would mimic the work load of whatever tournament I had coming up. The entire workout would usually involve low-rep strength training first, then these rounds, and then possibly some walking on an incline treadmill.

    It turned me into a machine, and got me super lean.

    What's your gym like for comp prep? My BJJ gym has competition only classes that's a solid brutal fast paced 2 hours of cardio and sparring. I've only been to a few and already notice a difference in MMA.

    Sounds weird, but also learning to regulate your breathing, and noticing the difference from being gassed, and an adrenaline dump could possibly help.

    My Judo/Wrestling/Jiu Jitsu coach pretty much tells everyone to run. "Hey coach, I am gassing out." "Yes, yes you are... are you running?" "No..." "Run".

    I mean, I lift and all that because I like being big and strong and having a sexy round tushy, but in the end running is going to do a lot. And then roll as much as possible.

    You want to be better at Jiu Jitsu. Do Jiu Jutsu. However, I will say after my wake up call, I started running and fixed my diet. Eventually I added weight lifting and swimming.

    The supplements are a bit like changing the tables settings on the titanic. Start by training hard as a mother fucker and work from there.

    A little trick our guys do is get together on their day off and do ten rounds of hard sparring.

    we have a twelve week program going on at the moment. Check the Facebook link. That is a lot of off the street doing fight prep style training.
