    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    My back and Muay Thai

    I have stated in other threads the issue with my lower back.

    I had an MRI done last week and until I talk to a doctor I am avoiding grappling for now.

    But I am bored and irritated and getting fat.

    So I think I am going to tottle on off to a Muay Thai class.

    How do people find MT is on their lower back?

    I assume because I won't be rolling on the ground with some 230 pound man trying to sit on me it will be ok for me.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    well clnching might be tough, and any gym worth their salt will be big on clinch sparring. however if you arent fighting then you dont need to do it. other than that i dont think a MT class will be too hard on your back but that depends entirely on the kind of injury you have...

    i have a herniated/bulging c7 disk and I find MT class ok. I don't do clinch fighting. I just stick to drills and very light ocntact sparring. My dr said I should try to remain as active as possible but be smart about it. Maybe you could do drills and some bag work. Nothing wrong with just getting your technique good and improve footwork. I definitely wouldn't do anything that compresses your spine like clinching or slipping punches.

    I think the class I am going to is mostly conditioning, pad works and drills.

    Basically my lower disks are compressed and pinching my sciatic nerve

    You might just want to wait for your dr's ok. If you already had your mri done shouldn't you be seeing him soon?

    It takes about two weeks

    I have been dealing with this for almost 2 years now. It goes up and down. With training making it worse

    I am just trying to find what level I can train at now with out making it worse.

    Grappling - which I love, just is no good for me right now.

    We'll see how this class goes.

    I'll tell the Kru before hand about my issues so I can wimp out if I start to ache

    Round kicks tend to twist the trunk, not sure if that'd be a good thing or a bad thing.

    I have an achey back (not as bad as yours though by far) that acts up sometimes but MT style bagwork doesn't seem to affect it, FWIW.

    If you're bored and getting fat, just go to the gym. I'm sure there's some PT like exercises that are good for strengthening your core.

    What he said. You should actually have a strong back for striking and kicking, according some eastern block guys, you should be able to take say, 200 lbs and do squats for 10 reps (if you weigh 200 lbs) before you do intensive kicking and punching.

    Well I am back

    It was good. basically a conditioning class. I could feel the torque on the kicks in my back so I just eased up on them, and actually my back feels better.

    Hopefully if I don't over do it the kicking aspect will help strengthen rather than weaken my back.

    My forearms however (my left one in particular) hurts from holding the pads.

    Anyways trues test tomorrow when i see how I feel

    PS going to the gym on Friday but I hate the gym.

    so here's my report

    legs tired and sore

    arms two identical baseball size bruises on each forearm

    Back ------ feels a little better uhmmmmmm!!!

    The thing with me is no excerise and it gets worse, too much excercise and it gets worse, so maybe Muay Thai conditioing is just right.
