      Give me some more info on what your background and focus is. Then maybe I can try to give you some insight from what I've gone through or learned. Cheers fella.

      In fact... I will almost always recommend sprints or other anaerobic type work over a just pure strength workout. Anyhow I'm yammering on... but this is a topic that I've wrestled with for years and years and recently (in fact as recent as last night) I've seen so many people that were gym fit... but would be far better off stepping away from the Oly bar and putting that same effort into really working on their ring skills and coordination for Muay Thai.

      If you just want general fitness with some variety thrown in... then Muay Thai two to three days a week with weights works. But if you want to be a proper nak muay... 1-2 days a week on the weights is more than enough. You need speed and strength endurance to successfully function in the muay thai world.

      If you're serious about your Muay Thai then you're really only going to be able to get in weights two days a week. Even that is going to be pushing it. Don't get me wrong. I love me some weights. I really do. But unless you don't have to go to work or school... decisions have to be made. To progress in Muay Thai you need the time in... repetition and the correction of technique by constant attention via the coach is the way forward. Weights are not going to bring all that much to your game in Muay Thai... at least not for a few years into it. Focus on the Muay Thai if that's what you want.

      Timmy - sorry mate couldn't remember if I'd responded or not. If the lessons are run properly and there is no nonsense... and you show up warmed up and and wrapped then one hour is easily long enough. When I train with my coach (who is from London) then by about 45 minutes into it I'm already thinking... '**** - the end can't come soon enough'... a proper coach should be able to hammer you with an hour easily.

      With my students... nothing hacks me of more than when they don't show up wrapped and ready. Show up wrapped and ready to rock. Anyone who doesn't isn't there to train and should be given a talkin' to.
