As most of you will know, professional Thaiboxers train 6 times per week and 2 times per day - with running sessions before the training sessions to boot (that at least is the standard training regimen in MT camps in Thailand).
As somone who is in his late thirties, who has continued with MT only at the beginning of June 2017 (I 'wasted' time with Taekwondo and something kickboxing-like before that with plenty of long breaks in between) and who finds the above training schedule rather awe-inspiring, I wanted to see what it would be like to train 6 times per week (only once per day for one week) and - successfully - challenged myself to do that last week (the week before that I went training 3 times).
My I guess hardest training week ever (2 hour sessions per day at the gym) went pretty well: No real injuries - just a minor liver ko from some guy who said he wanted to do sparring in a really relaxed manner (yeah right, but at least he apologized twice) and a bruise on my shin from a blocking experiment gone wrong. Knees also holding up well. Also no real fatigue; I always felt pretty fresh the next day in training but appreciated the Sunday off.
So for all those not already training like Sylvie or other pros, who do have the possibility to train 6 days per week and who have not done so yet, maybe challenge yourself to do that and write about your respective experiences here. Or if you have already done it, tell us what your first time training 6 days per week was like.
