    How many days to rest before a competition?
    i train so hard that i need some days to recover. i think that two or three isn{t enough.
    i have one partner who rest always for a week with good results.
    What is your opinion?
    i am talking about bjj.
    thanks

    1 week sounds good! Just hang around in the gym....doing some light rolling with some higher belts..just so you don't somehow run the risk of getting injured... :)!

    Good luck!

    Everybody's body and its recovery time is different. I've only competed in 5 tournaments, but I don't do anything different leading up to it. I go to Thursday class like usual and don't go easy or anything. I could roll three days in a row if I could and as long as I'm not injured or anything I don't have a problem with feeling fatigued, tired or weak. As long as you get enough rest and have a good diet I don't see anything wrong with working out like usual having an affect on your energy for a weekend tournament. Though some people's bodies needs a day or two or three off to recover, but only you know how your body reacts to a workout.
