Muay Thai for fitness and Fun in the West Midlands
Muay Thai or the science of eight limbs as it is sometimes known as is a very exciting, sometimes brutal sport.
I love Muay Thai, but I have NO wish to compete, especially under full Thai Rules with elbows and knees to the head.
But I do want to train, I love to train:)
So this blog is all about great ways to enjoy Muay Thai for Fitness and Fun, NOT competition. And as I live in the West Midlands It will mainly be about Muay Thai in the West Midlands.
Muay Thai is an absolutely brilliant way to get and keep fit. It uses both Aerobic and anerobic fitness systems. One of the best parts of training in Muay Thai is the pad work. The pad work is tough, but it can also be very educational if you have a great pad man. I practice most of my Muay Thai in Perry Barr and they have great instructors, so I am very lucky.
If you have a good pad man, you can gain so much from a reletivly short space of time. I prefer to do just 3 rounds of 3 minutes, but do them at a pretty tough pace and I find that this gives me the best workout as I don’t have to pace myself.
I also like to have a good work out on the punching bag. Again, here I would also do 3 x 3 min rounds on the bag. but at a hard pace.
I also sometimes train at Muay Thai sheldon. they also have great instructors, but I enjoy the sparring the most there.
I will be updating this blog on a regular basis, so please keep coming back for updates.
