“What size gloves should I buy?” is a question often asked by people starting their Muay Thai or boxing training. When I first started myself, I didn’t even realise that gloves were made in different sizes. I say ‘size’, but I should really say ‘weight’.
It can be hard to find healthy and convenient snacks when you're out and about. There are a lot of 'health food' bars on the market, but they're often not as healthy as they are pretending to be and overpriced for what they are. $4 for a high-sugar bar of dried fruit and nuts squashed together seems excessive.
I believe that pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is a good thing. That’s why I decided to try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for the first time this week. In the realm of fighting sports, I had never done any sort of floor work. I had only trained Muay Thai and boxing. Moving onto the mats was a totally different experience, challenging me in new ways.
