Preparing for a tournament will vary greatly for each person.

From what i know you will have a dual curve for your physical preparation, where you can hit your peak twice; once part way through training and the second near the day of the competition.

Usually you'll be tapering the week of, and usually is just refining technique at a lighter rate.

Part of the Preparation for tournament, which goes without saying, yet needs to be said is

"Know the rules of the tournament"

Tournament rules, surprisingly very much over looked, yet this is a very important ingredient that can be helpful towards winning.

Knowing the rules will help with the mental preparation, as it will help to focus on what is useful for scoring opportunities and what judges are looking for, it will also help towards gaining confidence in knowing exactly what to do and more importantly not to do.

As it is a well known fact, that knowing the rules in any sport can make the difference between winning and losing, by two equally matched players.

That the one that is better acquainted with the rules is at an advantage over those who that don't know them confidently or unclear of what they contain.
