Any tips you could give to a total out of shape beginner who just had his first week of MMA training over?
Jiu Jitsu is hard as fuck, I can't seem to coordinate my moves. I do great at striking tho since I trained muay thai for a couple years when I was younger.
I'm would also like to ask about pre workout supplements or shakes or whatever that could enhance my endurance.
You don't really need pre workout plus that shit isn't good for your heart if you are doing cardio heavy stuff like running or muy thai. The best thing you can do is movement drills around your house it when your watching tv, find a movement your body finds awkward and practice doing it right slowly and with good form. Don't worry about speed, speed will come with time and repetition
blue belt bjj here
Keep at it. I'm a 1 stripe blue belt, and it doesn't really get any easier for me. But the only reason I'm still a blue is because of work, it's hard to make training all the time. I want to train as much as I can but obviously I can't due to work. I am pretty much at the bottom of the food chain of the blue belts, they always thrash me. But I can destroy most of the white belts. Some of those motherfuckers are getting good. The white belt level today is a lot better than the white belt level 7 years ago, I tell you that much.
Supplements and pre workout shit, forget about all that. The only supplement you should need is standard whey protein shakes, if anything. Just stick to a proper diet of fruit, vege, meat, water etc, and try to avoid Coca Cola and other junk food like Mcdonalds etc.
Having a proper diet is the key to improving your jiu jitsu. Proper diet and obviously attending class, of course.
Good luck, bro.

>I suck balls
No shit dude. That's why you train every week. And, whenever possible, go to events that last longer than your ordinary training time.
I made massive leaps with my Eskrima when I went to a seminar that consisted of four hours of repeating the entire basic curriculum.
