Will I be able to train muay Thai after gastric sleeve surgery?



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I've always wanted to train muay Thai and learn the art of Muay Thai kick boxing. I've tried to train in the past, but due to my weight I was finding it hard to keep up with the class and had to always take a break and go stand outside to recover my breathe and cool down, anyway long story short I got discouraged and stopped.

Now here's what I want to know. Once I start to lose a significant amount of weight and get my cardio health up, would I be able to train muay Thai again? Or am I asking for trouble in wanting to go down that route?

I'm sure you will find it so much easier once you lose weight 😊 I was impatient to get back to training but looking back, it was probably 4 months post surgery before I felt like I could go hard, before that I walked, did lighter stuff etc. After that I just felt better and better. You will work out what you need to eat to train, and there are some awesome knowledgeable peeps on this site.

You should be able to. I was never really able to run before at a higher BMI but now at a lower BMI my endurance has skyrocketed.

Mauy Thai? I thought you meant Mai Tai! 🍹

You totally should be able to! I am looking into taking Krav Maga classes if I can figure out how to work it into my already packed exercise schedule.

It shouldn't be a problem. I was training in Wing Tsun. I stopped for surgery, and my doctor said I was fine to go back after about 6 weeks, or whatever my pain levels were. I'm going back next week.

Yes I really been doing lots of research, I'm trying to get as much knowledge as possible, my surgery is on the 6th next month.

      Have decided on the Lap Band.  Excited, tomorrow 7/24 I have my consultation with my surgeon!  Hoping he will approve me.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
