As we move into a new year, it’s one of the best times to lay down some groundwork for setting yourself up for success when training in Boxing, Muay Thai and MMA. The key is to strategically set yourself up with the right structure and tools needed to absolutely tackle all your goals for 2024. In this blog, we’ll cover ways to set goals, how to structure your workouts, staying consistent, nutrition, the gear to get you there and what to do if you can’t workout at the gym.
Set Achievable Goals
Setting achievable goals within your own means is key to being successful with your training and progress. Set out milestones for enhancing skills, strength, muscle growth and competition preparation. Here are some examples of goals you might set yourself: increase the weight (set a target weight) for strength training, increase speed (time it takes to complete exercise) when doing conditioning workouts.
Have a Well-Rounded Workout Schedule
Develop a well versed workout program, including a range of strength and conditioning exercises, mixed with footwork combinations, technical drills, sparring and kicking sessions to build on your abilities in Boxing, Muay Thai and MMA.
Discipline = Consistency
There’s an old saying ‘consistency breeds success’ and by having the discipline to stick to your workout routine will allow you to have the progression you desire. Consistency is all up to you and you need to have a strong mind set to keep pushing yourself to meet your goals.
Planning for a Balanced Diet
Progress only happens when all things are balanced out equally. That’s why fueling your body with foods that help you look and feel your best self are key to your progression. Having a balanced diet is essential to ensuring you stay well-fed whilst training hard. Ensure your meal plan includes lean proteins, healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to assist with recovery.
Finding the Right Gear
Investing in highest-quality gear not only guarantees it will last you a long time but it will also provide you with getting the best out of your training. Finding fight gear such as boxing gloves, punching bags, shin guards and training gear from Fairtex and Arwut will ensure you are choosing the right brands take your training to the next level.
Training at Home
Not everyone can make it to the gym, but some days we might have some spare time to smash out a workout from the comfort of our own home. That’s why we created an At-Home Gym collection that includes all the best products to use at home without needing to set it up or use up too much space in your house. Training from home allows you to stay on track with your training schedule without needing to make the trip to the gym. It’s a win-win!
Lastly, taking on 2024 the right way will require setting goals, consistency, a great mind set, dedication to a new training routine, finding the right gear for the job, following your nutrition plan and training from home. By doing all of these small things, you’ll be able to see a change in yourself, your mindset, your drive and your progression when training for Boxing, Muay Thai and MMA in 2024.
