    Do I Fight Peak Even If I've No Fight Date?

    Do I Fight Peak Even If I've No Fight Date?

    Paraphrasing a recent question…

    "I have seen your videos on different training blocks… I have been training Muay Thai for 6 months and I’m not going to be fighting any time soon, so is it necessary to do the speed block and peak-week if I’m not competing?"

    Here's a short podcast episode to share my thoughts on this one...

    Hip Impingements and High Kicks?

    Hip Impingements and High Kicks?

    "If I have FIA (cam hip impingements on both hips), will I be able to ever kick high without surgery?"

    Prompted by an Instagram message, hip impingements and Muay Thai kicks are a common issue!

    So I've taken the opportunity to explain what you can do to help yourself if hip impingements affect you, and if you'll need to have surgery after all.

    Elevation Training Masks, & Breathing Pure Oxygen— Proven or Playing?

    Elevation Training Masks, & Breathing Pure Oxygen— Proven or Playing?

    From Buakaw to Petchmorakot... is it real?

    Combat sports athletes are constantly bombarded with video clips of fighters using training methods or supplements that are seemingly a shortcut to fantastic results.

    Most of the time, these clips are little more than social media stunts, either to market a product or simply to get likes…

    And fighters are always up for having a laugh, and playing with some new toy in their training for a session or two.

    Certain training methods keep coming around at regular intervals on social media.  Some do help fighters improve, while others either waste their time, or even negatively impact performance.

    And in this episode I take a close look at breathing...  Both Elevation Training Masks, and Personal Oxygen Supplementation.
