Has anybody tried those apps for boxing/mma/muay thai that are supposed to help train at home? Was it useful? How often did you use it? How much did it cost?

I want to train at home more often, so I thought I'd try out some apps to help. I  just wanted a basic boxing timer, but I found a ton of apps that are way more intricate and exciting. I just downloaded a free app off amazon called "Shoutbox Workout Timer" and I did three five minute rounds today. I actually really like it! 

 

There's this robotic voice commanding you to do different moves for either shadow boxing or bag work. I did fifteen minutes of shadow boxing and it was fun. The intensity level was at 1 so I raised it to 2, but 2 was pretty fast so I went back down to intensity level 1. Hoping to build up to intensity level 2 (level 2 involved getting combo commands in really fast succession).

 

There's a screen where you can adjust how long the rounds and intervals between rounds are. You can adjust the intensity and the frequency of certain moves (i.e. I raised the number of front kicks on a screen and during the rounds the front kick command came more often). There's also a screen where you can keep track of how many punches/kicks/knees you did. 

 

 I really like the voice call out feature in shoutbox workout timer. I am one of those people that exercises a lot harder if someone is telling me what to do and when to do it. I just wish it could also yell out motivational things like, "keep going" or "don't stop" lol

 

I still have to try this other one, "Get Fight Fit" that I actually paid a dollar for. It also has voice call-outs for combos. I'll give it a test run tomorrow and come back and post what it was like!

If you've tried any tablet/smart watch apps that are helpful, please share! :)

It seems to be free now!

 

How it looks to me, the app itselves is free but you got in-app costs to see all content.

    • Hey! I posted about getting some help on what gym to visit!  First I was set on Sitjaopho but I missed a more structured training routine (Running, more pads etc) So it ended up to be either Manop or Singpatong. I picked Manop cause they seem to be very technical and puts alot of emphasis on very small details to get your technique perfect!  I messaged them on FB about prices and got a link to their website, where it said 10000 Baht / Month so 30000 Baht for my 3-month stay, which is more than alright for me. I phoned them today asking about accomodations and he said they had but I really could not understand the cost for it, so if anyone knows what accommodations go for at Manop that would be amazing! (For 3 months) and also if the price is only for the room or for room+training   Thanks in advance!
    • Hey mate sorry for bumping old thread, im thinking bout going to Manop for 3 months in nov-dec-jan. Everything you described in your posts are what i'm looking for, but there was some things bothering me.   1) From what I read you barely got to spar? Sparring is a huge deal and important for me.. Why didn't you get to spar in the beginning? 2) You seem to spent ALOT of time hitting the bag, why didnt you get more pad-time in the beginning of your training? I really don't know your level and it was hard to tell from the fight 3) (Probably most important) How are they on instructions? Do they correct your technique? how much do they emphesise on that? Do they teach you proper form, sweeps, techniques, tricks, etc? cause from your posts it seemed like you were on your own pretty much the entire stay     Cheers!
    • Adding in another connection between Greek Antiquity and the combat of Siam. Both were slave cultures, and the aim of warfare often consisted of the taking of slaves. This made the regard of an enemy quite different from that of the West where the aim was, often, the capture of (scarce) land with less regard for the enemy.  The knockout, in some sense, may reflect this underlogic of Western land grab warfare, where the killing of the enemy may be a primary goal, whereas capture and control may be aims of slave warfare cultures because the captured enemy became your wealth. More on this as it relates to Thailand:

    • I'll recommend Elite Sports, Yokkao and Fairtex.
    • If you're having problems seeing then it's time to get a Dr somehow and I'm glad you did. So now, unfortunately all you can do is wait. I have been in similar situations and understand how frustrating it is. Good luck.
    • Yes sur if you have a doctor. After I called the hospital (far from my place and no car) they told me to come. A friend of mine gently offer me to drive me there a day or two after this post. After an eye checking a young doctor/student told me that it's a vitreous detachment. I asked about boxe and he told me that I have to wait sometimes and after the vitreous will be totally detached I can practice normally but it's not clear when it will happen. He told me to go back to the hospital after two weeks if I still have this little black dot in my eye and this kind of "lighting bolt" when I move quick my eyes from left to right during night. I didn't yet but soon. He also told me to don't do too much sport (that was very vague) drink a lot of water and don't take hit on the face because in the process of the detachment it can still tear the retina. I hope it will be fixed soon.
