I have a question I would like answered ASAP as I am fighting Saturday Muay Thai if it makes any difference by the way.
How do you train during fight week? I've been told so far to train normally until 4/5 days before the fight and then begin to cool it down just jogging, skipping and hitting the bag lightly to keep me ticking over, sounds good to me, just wondering how you all do it.
My main question relates to the actual fight day. I was at Cage Rage Contenders on Saturday, I saw tons of different methods was warming up prior to the fight. For example:
1. one guy I saw was dripping in sweat after doing about 30 minutes on pads, literally smashing them for a minute with a minutes rest.
2. Then I saw other guys doing just speed stuff on the mitts, i.e. jab cross like 50 times and 20 kicks each leg.
3. One guy from London shoot was doing circuits almost, like 20 punches on the mitts and then 10 sprawls, 10 kicks and then 10 tuck jumps and so on for about 2 minutes... resting for a minute or two and doing simular things.
My last two fights I havn't bothered warming up at all, although I've had the Thai oil massage thing, so I havn't had to you know, not sure what to try this time round, so I'll await your replies
