Where should you start with your Muay Thai strength and conditioning?
A professional strength and conditioning program will always begin by finding out more about you (usually more than you consciously know about yourself).
“Did that last time you rolled your ankle affect how your ankle moves now, months later?”
You’ll fast-track your progress by checking what your body can and can’t do right now, before using a lot of exercises that you either can’t perform well enough or don’t need yet. And crucially, any potential problem areas can be highlighted and personalised “quick-fixes” worked into your training program as you go.
A sneak peak at the third and final “onboarding” video from our online Muay Thai strength and conditioning (PRO Membership) program will shed some light on how we introduce new clients into our personalised program.
You’ll be surprised how your body can cheat a movement to work around a problem, without you realising. A problem that you’ll get away with up to a point (simply wasting energy, and potential strength and power), until injury usually strikes.
But starting with some foundation testing allows your S&C coach to design a program that addresses your issues, and holds up a mirror to the limitations that will already be holding you back – whether you realise it or not.
It’s really useful stuff! It’s what I do with my face-to-face clients, and I do it online too.
So check out the following video to learn a little more about where to start your training program, and where to go next.
Do this now… find out more about how your body really moves, and earn the right to progress.
