The Muay Thai Guys Podcast – Episode 34
One of the biggest tests of courage, toughness and heart is when you are scheduled to fight multiple times over the course of a few days… needless to say, it is NOT easy!
When it comes to preparing for a tournament (both mentally AND physically) there are a lot of things to consider if you decide to test yourself in this type of competition. Paul and I discuss our training methods the fight strategies we’ve used in past tournaments as well as:
- The benefits of fighting in a tournament (i.e. gaining experience, improving your technique etc.)
- What tournaments to consider fighting on in the US.
- How to choose which type of ruleset/division you want to fight in.
- Why having a solid aerobic base will be crucial to your success in a tournament.
- Why training multiple times a day is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for multiple fights.
- The importance of cooling down, warming up and taking care of injuries.
- Strategies and tactics to consider when fighting in a Muay Thai tournament.
- Why the most technical fighters tend to come out on top at the end of the day.
- How having a strong clinch game can help you win fights AND avoid injuries.
