Weekly commitment… What’s the minimum number of strength and conditioning sessions should I have each week and still progress?
It’s a question I’m often asked, and one that I’ve decided to answer by sharing the first of our “onboarding” videos for our online Muay Thai strength and conditioning (Heavy Hitters) program.
In the Strength vs Speed video I explained the importance of coordinating strength/power training sessions, with dedicated cardio conditioning sessions and Muay Thai sessions. These three training elements form a successful Thaiboxer’s training program.
Both the strength/power training sessions and the cardio conditioning sessions are in addition to your Muay Thai sessions, and target athletic development that Thai boxing training alone can’t give you.
If you can develop a fitness quality from Thai boxing training, then that’s how you should get it! You’ll then of course score some sport specific technical and tactical skill simultaneously.
So check out the following video to learn a little more about how much supplemental training you need to start sending your performance upward, and it may be less than you thought!
Weekly commitment… It’s about doing the right stuff, not just more stuff!
