(just kidding) to run out.

I am training for my next Muay Thai fight in 5 weeks at the moment. On Sunday I got asked to join in a game of indoor 5 a side.. haven't played footy in 7 years and it was a friendly but comeptitive game.

Last couple of days my legs feel sore (in a good way I suppose) and just wondering if it has negative effects to Muay Thai training. Or is it infact good? As I did an awful lot of running about, and majority of my leg aches is from that I suspect.

Opinions please :)

yeh whitti i love football also an same thing happens to me i ache like f**k after my annual game Lol

think the use of muscles in a different way is the problem , hamstrings get hammered in football not so much in muay thai sometimes i go for the occasional game of squash and have same effect my calfs are wrecked, after nearly 30 years training in muay thai i can honestly say that after a 3 hour morning session more often than not i have no muscle ache wierd stuff.

fought muaythai for ten years and never had any serious injuries.
i retired from fighting about 4 years ago and put about 3stone on. about 6 month ago joined a 5 a side league with a few mates to get fitter.ive been injured ever since sprained both my ankles in 1 gameabout 8 weeks ago and still not 100%.
last week got crunched and am now sporting a black knee and leg. it is a league and not just a friendly kick about so its a bit more serious but if i was still fighting theres no way on earth id be playing football before a fight.. its very good for fitness but i personally believe its a different kind of fitness than what you need to fight. just be carefull you dnt get injured.

Cheers for the help guys. I am 4 and half weeks from fight... will keep it going over the next couple of Sundays as it did work fitness having not used those parts of legs in a while and all the short sprints must be good. Have avoided footy due to injuries when playing to competitively and getting nailed in tackle but I think these guys are sound (and old some too lol).

Ordered some Adidas Samba's - gotta be done lol

Haven't extra-curricular football games ended or shortened the careers of many a Thai?

yes foot ball risks injury far more than muay thai i would leave it lee, there is a good chance of sprained knees and anckle which would ruin your nomal preparation

It depends.

Some people have done both and nothing was wrong.
Some people have done both and it dug into their time for Muay Thai, and it goes both ways.

You know your own strengths and weaknesses, so do what feels right for you, and remember to have fun.

Have fun = work hard, play hard
