In preparation for the Power of Scotland 8 man Muay Thai competition my close friend and one of our team, Craig Jose embarked on Crossfit workouts and specific Muay Thai training. He worked with Cindy, Barbara, Michael and Fran with a mixture of other WODS.

Check out the performance guys!!!!

Not work safe

Nice one! I've had to knock my Muay Thai classes on the head for the time being due to knee/calf trouble. The technique part of the class is fine but I just can't hack all the jumping and skipping and running on the spot in the warm up. Really pees me off that I can't just skip that and turn up for the part of the class that matter! :-(

Yeah Ben he was probably the most confident he has been when entering the tournament, he said that all of his training felt perfect for the event.

Sorry to hear that you are unble to train MT presently, our coach just has us train around the injuries if possible doing what we can do e.g boxing if you have a leg injury or technique work etc.

Stay positive, see a specialist, rehab if needed and then back into the conditioning of the body etc. It's a difficult sport to be part of but keep at it!

Sweet...I love Muay Thai, I'm training for my first fight...and I must say, Crossfit has increased my endurance to a great extent...I was working the bag with a young guy tonight, and that dude was gasping for breath, bent over, on the way to Pukie...I have more BF than the young guy, but I was outlasting him (and yes, I owe that to Crossfit hands down), out kicking and yes, out punching him...

He asked me for the website I offered before while he was bent over in a standing fetal position...turns out, he's a PT...I kinda laughed in my head remembering all of the posts I've read from this illustrious group...

Thank U everyone!

I'm back in lurk mode...
