For Fighters, Is ONE Run Enough?
Many fighters struggle to adapt their training program to suit their personal weekly schedule... A schedule that’s VASTLY different to a full time fighter out in Thailand. In this short podcast, I explain more by way of a worked example from Jamie. Podcast episode show notes and further resources at https://heatrick.com/2022/01/20/for-fighters-is-one-run-enough/

Muay Thai – Setbacks?... ALREADY?!
Sundays tend to be a reflective day for me, and my Sunday posts therefore share more personal insight… Both of my own thoughts and feelings, and a personal look behind the scenes of my own life too (in case you’re interested). This morning, while out exercising my dog Logan, I found myself considering a post from a fighter I’ve worked with online, and our subsequent (message) conversation. The shit had hit the fan – an ill attempted sweep in sparring had seriously damaged their knee… Scans are needed to determine the extent of the damage… But a 50/50 prognosis on being able to return to any physical activity in the long-term (Muay Thai included) is the reality right now...

Scientific Fight Training... Is It Pointless?
Sports science is often shot down by elite fighters… Fighters that offer themselves as world class performers, who don’t follow a scientific approach to their training, and that often criticise the performance of others that do. And it’s an understandable mindset when that’s appeared to be the reality for you personally. But this thinking is flawed...

The Truth About Muay Thai Training 'Best Practice'
Consider this… Accepted ‘best practice’ is only the ‘best so far’. In his book Rebel Ideas, Matthew Syed discusses what we accept as ‘best practice’... It makes sense that if there’s a way of doing things that proves superior, that everyone should adopt it. But it's important to also realise that the accepted best practice is only the ‘best so far’. If an alternative method is proven to deliver superior results, then the status quo (best practice) should be amended. Best practice should evolve through time in a rational, evidence based way. For me, this is clearly reflected in Muay Thai training… We should balance the proven aspects of traditional Muay Thai training, with the proven aspects of athletic performance research...

How To Overcome The Fear Of Hitting People – Muay Thai
Muay Thai seems to attract more than its fair share of "nice" people... So how can a nice person hit another person with the kind of destructive power that Muay Thai is designed to inflict? In a recent Heavy Hitters program support call, Arnaud asked how can he overcome a fear of hitting and hurting people? It was a great question, and one he was happy for me to share to help out others too. Thanks Arnaud. :) Full video podcast version, show notes and further resources at https://heatrick.com/2021/08/04/how-to-overcome-the-fear-of-hitting-people/

What's Your REAL Max Heart Rate?
A lot of fighters are using heart rate monitors these days, to allow them to train at the right intensity in their cardio sessions. And I love using monitors in my programs too. But most fighters are basing their training on a calculated age related maximum heart rate… Which for most people will be way off – because individual genetics determine what your max heart rate is, NOT your fitness. In this episode learn how to test for your REAL max heart rate.
