Traveling with a client in Mexico. We’ll be staying at an eco-hotel in Tulum, Mexico about 15k down Boca Piala towards Punta Allen. The conditions here are phenomenal, sunny but with a great off shore breeze and temperatures in the high 80s. This Mornings training consisted of about 30 minutes of technical pad work (Muay thai) on a leveled out area with nice soft sand. She really has gotten into the technical aspect of Muay Thai recently because I’ve started working her in with some higher level competitors and although she has no interest in actually fighting herself she really likes getting to push herself to keep up with individuals who are ring ready. After that we hit the beach for some “tempo runs” which consisted of 15 second 75%sprints with a 1 minute rest. We hit 16 sets, 8 down the beach and 8 back up. After that we finished with some explosive low rep calisthenics and crawling patterns in the sand.
this afternoon i loaded up the 3 Ultimate Sand Bags the i brought with me as i really wanted to keep up with the resistance training program we’d had her working for the 3 weeks prior to this trip. Tomorrow i plan to put her through some movements with the sand bags that will require a higher skill level, alignment and balance so i’m not so much worried about “volume” as far as weight goes so i’m setting the bags up so they will shift more. I’m also going to break out a Jungle Gym XT suspension trainer for some body weight training. most likely i’ll use a movement prep cycle and pad work for a warm up.
for tomorrow afternoon i’m planning on having her do some High Resistance interval sprints in the loose packed sand. These will consist of 6 seconds all out sprint with a 1:30 rest. We’ll hit about 16 to 18 of these. I don’t want to really do to many 2 a days but she really enjoys training and that’s my part on the trip. Hopefully she will take my suggestion to take a yoga class at Maya Tulum on wednesday.
I forgot to take photos today but will try to grab some tomorrow.
