Back to training today after a day off yesterday. I can't tell you how good it felt to NOT get on a mat for the day, or push weights, or get on the treadmill. But more importantly, getting some food with a bit of grease and to many carbs was equally as important.
Be sure with the run up to the tournament that you're not pushing too hard for too long each week. Get some down time, get some bad food here and there while cutting down. On a last note for our crew, based on what I've found while working up for tournaments before, make sure you're getting plenty of rest. Like good night's sleeps, not the rushed few hours you're used to after staying up on a game console for too long.
Rest is just as important function of training up as adding training days.
