Andy Ristie is becoming one of my favorite fighters to watch with his beautifully chaotic style. What other fighters do you think deserve to be mentioned on this list?

I want to get in shape for Muay Thai. What workouts do you recommend? And I have no equipment.

Boom. Check out those workouts there. There will be some with equipment and some without. Sprints and long distance running is also a good idea.

Shadowboxing is definitely one of my favorite things. Keeps me fresh when I can't make it to the gym. And I'm not as rusty when I do go back.

Exactly! Shadowboxing is the shit. I find myself doing it in public places way too often.

''Muay thai is the loneliest sport ever. You train by yourself, with yourself, against yourself and most important: You train yourself.'' Thought you might like this one :)

Thanks! Although it can be very, very lonely at times, having the right people around you in terms of training partners and coaches can make a huge difference. I wouldn’t be where I am today without some of my past instructors and training partners.

Hello, I started training only a couple months ago but I am going away for 2-3 weeks with nowhere to keep training. What would you suggest to do most I won't lose what I learned and do you have any tips for cutting weight and to practice footwork ?

Running, shadowboxing and body weight exercises are the best forms of working out when you have no equipment. Try to mix those in and visualize your technique when you are shadowboxing.

As for weight cutting tips, I wrote a few posts on them:

When I practice footwork, I mainly focus on my shadowboxing. You can really learn a lot when you actually focus and feel how your body reacts throwing certain strikes. Based on your bodies movement you can mess around with your footwork and see what positions and movements work best for you.
