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.

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
