    Electrolyte supplements are only necessary if you have a trash diet and don't get enough from your food. You're probably over thinking it. Get a good night sleep, a decent meal 2 hours before you compete, and drink plenty of water(some coconut water if you're really worried about electrolytes).

    Let your brain relax until it's time to compete. In my experience each time I dissected every moment of my life up until I competed I always did worse.

    I had the worst bicycle race of my life loading with creatine beforehand. For weight lifting it's good, not cardio.

    I had good experiences using this to peak for bicycle races.

    Baking soda for lactate-tolerance, taurine for muscle pumps. electrolytes - only if you're going to sweat a tonne.
