What is muay thai conditioning like?
What kind of conditioning do they have you do in your muay thai classes? Go into detail.
This is what Thais do…foreigners try to keep up with this…
The daily routine varies from place to place. Professional fighters usually train from 6:30 am till 10:30 am, then again from 3:30 pm until 6:30 pm. It is common for everybody to wake up at sunrise, to take advantage of the cool morning air and do jogging for at least 1 hour. After, there is shadow boxing. Then it’s personal schedule: some fighters work on rubber tires to reinforce legs and knees, others start sparring or do some combinations at the banana bag. Every activity is timed by a bell at five minutes intervals. As an extra excercise for strengthening the body, some athletes may work with weights, or do sit-ups and pull-ups. A classic old-style training is the reinforcement of the neck’s back muscles (to avoid being knee-ed in the chin): holding a bucket of water in his teeth, the nak muay lifts it for a certain number of times, developing an unbendable neck. After the morning session the fighters take a shower, eat all together (mostly Thai or Lao-Isaan food), and go to rest. Everyday duties, like washing clothes, cleaning, buy supplies at the market or simply take a nap have to be performed during these hours, too hot for training. In the afternoon the training routine is repeated more intensively. This is the major factor that separates beginners/amateurs from professional fighters: the intensity of every muaythai training activity, especially sparring. muaythai training
Here below there is an example of a professional nak muay training schedule – not for amateurs! muaythai training

Have you heard of Cafe Press? They have a variety of clothing items bearing various novelty Isaan words and phrases.
Above is the logo to a white sleeveless T-shirt: supposedly it says “I have no money.”
This hooded sweatshirt well typifies the Isaan girlfriend — I can easily envision a lot of guys wanting to wear something like this when out with their special lady:
Zazzle.com (Zazzle.com) also has some similar novelty clothing items. If you scroll to the very bottom of that page, you will see links for Zazzle Worldwide Sites — there are currently 10 different countries displaying, but if you click the see all link, a total of 17 appear. Maybe your country is there, if you do not live in the States.
Yet one further online shop that sells some stuff like this is SpreadShirt.com (SpreadShirt.com). Canadians are directed to try SpreadShirt.com/us-ca for Canadian prices. There are also SpreadShirt webstores for Italy (spreadshirt.it), Germany (spreadshirt.de), Spain (spreadshirt.es) — in fact, quite a few other European countries; just go to spreadshirt.net, and choose your specific nation’s flag. However, I have not explored these various related websites to see if they all carry the Isaan-logo wear, but it would be reasonable to think that they should.
For some serious high-quality Isaan-inspired wear, you might try Siamese Style:
While we offer handwoven Thai silk and cotton, as well as traditional Thai clothing, we specialize in custom tailored Thai wedding dresses and men’s attire. We are also happy to acquire any items available here on a special order basis.
…We also stock or can get anything pertaining to the Thai Farmer’s way of life, including baskets, tools and cooking utensils. We also offer a Special Order Service for clothing, Thai handicrafts and farmers’ gear.
…In addition, we stock or can get anything pertaining to the Thai Farmer’s way of life, including baskets, tools and cooking utensils. We also offer a Special Order Service for clothing, Thai handicrafts and farmers’ gear.
There may well be other online sources through which one might purchase authentic Isaan clothing, but I do not at this time have any leads on such an enterprise. I suspect it would likely be more of a wholesale nature. Nonetheless, I shall keep my eyes open.
As a July 27 (2012) edit to this post, here are a few somewhat related references:
… record and archive Isaan cultural dance and performance, introduce official city signage in Isaan language, and initiate a weekly ‘Isaan Day’ that encourages government employees to wear traditional Isaan clothing.
