When it comes to Muay Thai performance, your posture relates to much more than if you hold yourself in a lazy way!

In this video I share some thoughts about performance posture while I’m out walking Logan on another early Sunday morning.

Summary Points:

  1. Posture affects how you feel as well as how you look!
  2. The two are interrelated – how you feel affects your posture too.
  3. Athletic Posture is your ability to hold either the static or dynamic positions required of your body in your sport or activity.
  4. Your mobility, strength and stability affects the possibility of posture!
  5. If you don’t have either the mobility, strength or stability to competently complete a Muay Thai movement, your body will cheat to make a “look-alike” happen, and you won’t necessarily realise this.
  6. Reviewing video footage of yourself will help you correct bad patterns more quickly.
