During my formative years of jiu-jitsu training, my team not only competed a lot, but consistently had great results. I always looked up to them, and I loved the process of training and preparing for competition. My problem came when it was time to actually compete; I would get so nervous that I wouldn’t even want to show up to the tournaments. But at the same time, I also didn’t have the guts not to go, as I didn’t want to let down my team, and even more so because I didn’t want all of my training and preparation to be in vain. I put pressure on myself because I always trained so hard, but once the moment arrived and it was time to step onto the mats and begin my matches, I always had an overwhelming feeling of wanting it all to be done as quickly as possible; to just get it over with. Somehow, I subconsciously preferred to lose in the first ten seconds and relieve the pressure than to win. That’s how it was in the beginning for me, and I remember losing my first fight in probably under a minute in each of my first five or six tournaments.
Dairy products include milk, and any products derived from milk, such as; yogurts, cheeses, dairy desserts, etc. Should we, as athletes, consume dairy products? The short answer is yes! These foods contain an abundance of essential nutrients that offer a whole host of health benefits. Not only are dairy products rich in calcium, but they contain 9 other essential nutrients such as protein, vitamin A, vitamin B12, zinc and magnesium. All of these nutrients, especially calcium, are important for athletes because they are involved in generating EVERY muscle contraction you make! Without the intake of these key vitamins and minerals, we would have a hard time walking and talking, let alone participating in sport. Furthermore, dairy products are typically fortified with vitamin D, which is beneficial for bone health.
