The diet also works with the ongoing pandemic
Now that you have your game plan for when you train, you can think about how you need to feed yourself.
Even if staying in the house you have many more temptations to eat crap takes advantage to put into practice the idea of eating maybe without getting to weigh the food but to eat clean.
I know you’re at home alone or alone or with your partner watching hours of TV series and it’s nice to nibble on sweets and chips followed by soft drinks or beer but better if you try to eat clean.
Ps. The same thing on Sundays can you mess up? It’s your choice.
I propose a relaxation in these terms, do not weigh, eat freely but clean!
During quarantine you won’t be able to do many useful things but you have to adapt, improvise and achieve the goal
Combat sports, whether striking or fighting, have activities that are part of most training sessions but which you can’t do during quarantine.
I talk to you for example about jumping rope, shadowboxing, bag work, pad work, drilling and sparring standing and on the ground according to the discipline you practice or both.
Honestly I want to tell you that if you do some good rope jumping and shadowboxing rounds with good intensity and already these two make a pretty useful and intense workout.
I know that lucky few also have the heavy sack in the house but whoever has it can definitely continue to do the packed sessions.
Ps. You can find some cheap online bags that have the limit of weighing little, are not the best but you do not need a heavy bag to start a great workout or invest immediately in a bag for your home gym for fighter.
Other activities such as focus pad,pao or sparring are a job that requires a partner, maybe your girlfriend.
I start by telling you that during quarantine it’s better that you stay away from sparring because you’re probably not in a protected environment, if you get hurt going to an emergency room is complicated. Sparring must be done in a controlled environment and under the watchful eye of a coach. Do sparring with a friend who tells you that he did this or that, etc. in your garage, with a neighbor will lead to injuries and bad technical habits if you are not an expert if you do not even ruin the friendship with your neighbor.
What you can and do is do the pao/focus pad/etc., you can do this!
If your girlfriend/wife, cohabitant, neighbor or friend have no training experience, it’s okay just do it gradually and to make the movement, you can not pretend to do Muay Thai pao as with Ajarn Gae;
Remember, one thing that improves your martial art is explaining it to someone who doesn’t know it.
So if you have a friend or friend, girlfriend or boyfriend who is available to help you train, do some of the exercises you learned in the gym and then practice together in the sense of doing once apiece but make sure you go slowly, especially at the beginning!
You may not have pads at home, but especially for striking with your hands you can use many things and you can not work on power but on other attributes and then you can also use a simple stick as you do with kali moving it in space three-dimensionally (hold the stick with two hands and hold it vertical, horizontal, diagonal by moving it and changing the position in space!)
