Easy Muay Thai Workouts

Warm Up Exercises Before Training:

Just similar to any type of workout, lack of proper warm up and stretching exercises put bad impacts on body which may experience during or after workout. It will be best to perform short running or skipping rope or even simple jumping jacks. Keep warming up your body for up to 10 to 15 minutes.

Shadow Boxing:

After you completely warm up your body, then it’s time to stand in front of a large mirror and try shadow boxing. Shadow boxing is such a skill that everyone must try out to improve his or her Muay Thai techniques. This will improve your timing, footwork, techniques and other combinations. Practicing in front of a large mirror will help you imagining your opponent standing in front of you. In this way, you can better observe your punches and kicks. While practicing in front of a mirror, you can clear notice snapping your punches back or even analyze if your opposite arm is protecting up your chin.

Bag Work:

Punching a heavy bag is a significant thing while practicing at home. Bag work is extremely important if you need to see good results in your home. You can use bag training to learn all different Muay Thai techniques while focusing on your punches, knees, kicks and elbows. Punching a bag when it’s moving back and forth, will help you in learning your movements with perfect coordination and timing.

Trying to grab an idea of a particular technique will help your mind to focus on something while training. It will be good to fix time when punching the bag as hitting the bag for 3 minutes round will simulate the length of your fight. Give your best in 3 minutes and then take rest for a minute.

End With Strength Building Muay Thai Workouts:

Burpees:

Burpees are very good for conditioning your body and exhaust your body, you can use them according to your body capacity.

Sit-Ups:

If you want to improve the endurance of your stomach, sit-ups are extremely beneficial. Try to add various types of sit-ups in your exercise routine to increase your stamina.

Keep E-Bike Safe

Helmet

It’s a good idea to secure your helmet as well. For ease, you should just secure it to your bike. If your bike has a detachable, you may want to take it with you. As a matter of fact, some detachable can be removed from the bike more easily.

Garage

When your bike is at home, you may want to put it in your garage, under a tarp or shed. Usually, thieves scoop up the neighborhood when they get into a building or house. Therefore, you may not want to let them spot your bike.

Serial number

You may want to note down the serial number of your bike. If your bike gets stolen, the serial number will be asked for by the police so that they can locate your bike for you. Usually, the serial number can be found on the bottom of the bracket number. It’s also a good idea to hide your contact information underside of a piece of paper pasted somewhere on the bike, such as the seat tube or the handlebars.

Smartphone tracking

This developing technology is part of some e-bikes, and you can add a few systems to your bike. Actually, GPS tracking can help you locate your bike if it gets lost or stolen. With this great feature, you can find out exactly where your e-bike is at a specific time. Aside from this, you may also want to add an alarm to your bike, which will alert you whenever someone will try to tamper with the vehicle.

Get e-bike Insurance

As an added security feature, you may want to get e-bike insurance. This insurance policy will provide better coverage than a homeowner insurance policy. Therefore, we highly recommend that you consider buying this insurance policy.

Make a Crossbow

If you hope to build something you can knock down a few targets with in the back yard, or get that opossum to play dead for real, you might be able to put something together. Here are some simple tips.

The key ingredients you will need for a homemade crossbow are going to be a quality stock, jig cut from quality wood. Fashion it to your liking, with or without a grip. Stain it with a good stain and sealer combination product, and allow it to dry for 48 hours.

Next, design a simple trigger mechanism out of steel stock, though at a pinch, a 16 lb nail might serve you admirably. Drill out the stock, bottom to top and run the trigger up through the stock. If possible, use your ingenuity to determine how to lock the trigger once the string has been drawn.

Now, find a durable piece of flexible aluminum. Search your garage or the local home improvement store for stock that will work for the recurve limb. Cut it to length, and sand down the edges to make it smooth. Drill two holes in the center, and secure the limb to the stock with screws at least 3.25 inches long. Coated deck screws will work just as well. Out of heavy gauge steel wire, form a rail, and attach that from underneath, extending out beyond the limb.

Finally, drill holes at the end of each limb, cut your string to length, and tie it onto the limb as tight as possible.

Add any other features to your homemade crossbow to increase accuracy, select some practice arrows and head to the back yard, or somewhere else far enough away where you will not be a menace to anything, or anybody, like the neighbors and their pets. You should probably wear eye protection (and full body armor if you have it!).

Basics of Bicycle Gears

Left hand for front gears. The controls of your front gears are located on the left handlebars. The left hand controls the derailleur which is a metal loop that shifts the chain from side to side to catch a front gear. Get to know which mechanism your bike uses in shifting gears. These may either be a grip shifter that works by turning the wrist, small levers above or below the handlebars that are shifted using the thumb, or large levers that are found next to the handbrakes and are worked with the finger tips.

Right hand for rear gears. It pays to remember Right for Rear. The mechanism for the rear gears is almost always the same as that with the front gears. However, the rear gears have their own derailleur.

Now that you know where your gears are and which ones control or shift them, you might want to remember these basics:

· Gear Down. Shifting to lower gear makes you pedal easier and quicker but doesn’t give that push further and does not get you far. Shifting down can be done either by shifting to a smaller gear in front or by shifting to a bigger gear in the rear.

· Gear Up. Shifting to a higher gear makes pedaling harder but gives you the power to push your bike further and faster. To gear up, you can either shift into a bigger gear in front or shift to a smaller gear in the back.

· Shift while you pedal. It pays to remember to shift only when you are pedaling forward. If you shift while pedaling backwards or while on a stop, the chain might not be tight enough and may rattle or fall off.
