Heart rate monitor - What's Been Your Experience For Muay Thai

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. 

hope all are well during covid. 
 

ive started running a lot more due to gym closers, and for the first time thought I might get a heart rate monitor. I’ve never really been that fussed before but I thought it would be cool to track distance properly and also see what my heart rate was doing. 
 

does anyone use heart rate monitor whist training on bags or pads? And do they find it useful or annoying? Wondering whether to get a watch just for running or a chest strap that I can use for both. I have a suspicion I would use it once and get annoyed so just wanna see other people’s thoughts.

thanks

The benefit to the chest strap is that you can take the watch part off your wrist and just keep it close by for bagwork. Like, wrap it around the leg of a chair within range of it still reading your heart rate. If you have only the wristband, you have to keep it on your wrist under your glove for it to continue reading your heart during those workouts. I don't like that. Kevin doesn't seem to mind at all. Depends on your own preference but that's what I consider between the two.

I also like the chest strap and it doesn't annoy me while training (and he can handle teeps 😛 ). Like Sylvie explained you get put the watch on the side if using a chest strap. The watch on my wrist would annoy me and I would not be able to wrap my hands good, to clinch, ...

Not really good with technical stuff outside games, but want to know more about this. Can someone explain what the heart rate number (or ballpark range) should be for different activities? Lik,e if you're in shape, what should the range read after morning running, after pad rounds, after clinch, what number for resting?

Downloaded the free heart rate app on Playstore and only just getting a handle on it. Resting rate when waking up in the morning is 47, 48. But bro-science Googling seems to say that a good athlete should be between 30-40. Is this true?

Thanks 🙂

I'm working with Polar devices, using chest strap + app during training and a sports watch in general and for biking and I'm pretty fine with that!
For me it's more the monitoring effect than to stick to some advices. Of course main aspect is my training and technique, than all these stats, but still it's interesting to see how values develop.

    • Hey.  So I’m gonna do a Kyukoshin tournament.  If anyone doesn’t know the ruleset it’s no punches, elbows to the head and no clinching.  Points are only awarded for dropping someone or causing a visible reaction so Ning is going to be key.  I’m wondering if anyone here has done one?  It’s my first actual full contact fight, all the kicks knees (head and body) and punches and elbows to the body are full force.   They have a very unique style of throwing punches and there’s a lot of crowding so my plan is to take angles as much as possible and keep tagging the legs and body with kicks and throw a few headkicks if they’re there.  I’m southpaw too.  I want to move into Muay Thai but this seemed like a good a time as any to get some experience trading full power strikes with slightly less risk of getting slept.  Plus my coach encouraged me to do it so he thinks I’m ready for it.     Thanks for reading!

    • One of the simplest ways to increase the pace of your kicks is to use ankle weights. They also increase the potency of your kicks. The benefits of using ankle weights during Muay Thai training are minimal. You just do any kicking drill you choose while wearing the weights around your legs. Your kicking strength and quickness can be increased even by shadowboxing with ankle weights. Your legs get heavier as a result of the ankle weight, so you must use more force to move at your usual speed. When you remove the ankle weights after being accustomed to throwing kicks while carrying that extra weight, your kicks will go much more quickly.

    • Chalamdam (red) took a decision win and title belt against Pitakpetch (blue) today at Channel 7. Here are the highlights.  Pitakpetch's gym owner said after the fight the he will follow suit with several other gyms who have withdrawn their fighters from Giatpetch promotions due to bad judging. Comments on all the various shares seem to agree with the sentiment that this promoter is unfair.  What do you see? https://fb.watch/fD2_PfhFDE/
    • And re the blessing of the mongkol...  In lack of true thai monks, you can try to get a blessing from someoene else creditable. Some person you held in great estime, whom is also a person with a feeling for spirituality.  Your grandma or grandda if they are still alive, otherwise your momma or dad... Or someone else whom you have connection with and do trust.   ps.  You did made your mongkol yourself.  But the same advice for all whom did buy their mongkol in a common shop.   Such is my belief.
    • Thank you 🙂 I asked my coach too ( Ganyao Arunleung) and in his golden age fashion said it doesn't matter, it's the heart that matters 😄😂💖 I told him Muay Thai is the love of my life (just don't tell my husband 😉😄). I think I'll put the amulet on the rim right before the tail comes together. Or I'll wear it with a necklace and find another for the Mongkol.  It will all come together as meant to be at the right time 🤞🏻
