  6. Modern Warrior Conditioning with the YOKKAO Fight Team!

    Modern Warrior Conditioning with the YOKKAO Fight Team!

    YOKKAO Team fighters take their fighting very serious, so of course their strength & conditioning is taken seriously too. Where many Muay Thai camps and fighters are still carrying on in older, outdated training traditions, the YOKKAO Fight Team is making sure they keep up with the modern science of strength & conditioning. As we can see in the pictures of todays conditioning session, having a solid yet dynamic training regimen is very important for all the fighters, and each exercise has a specific set of qualities they improve. Deadlifts as performed by Singdam, are one of the best exercises at developing total body strength, and posterior chain development. Saenchai is performing the ‘Turkish Getup’, an exercise that really targets the entire core, and helps to develop increased shoulder strength, along with shoulder range of motion and stability. Manachai is on the ‘Battle Ropes’, a series of exercises made popular in MMA S&C that are excellent for

  8. Saenchai Takes on the Whole Gym!

    Saenchai Takes on the Whole Gym!

    No one can say that the champ Saencahi doesn’t deliver the greatest action! Whether it’s in his masterful, action packed, sold out arena fights or behind the scenes with his fellow YOKKAO teammates during his daily conditioning and training. Recently however, Saenchai was in a mood for a little more excitement than normal and decided to take on the entire YOKKAO Muay Thai Training Center Bangkok. Similar to the “Shark Tank Drill” often seen in MMA and BJJ training, Saenchai was surrounded by foreigner fighters, who each came in fresh and took turns sparring with the Living Legend. Training of this nature is of course done for a few reasons. 1. To work on Saenchai’s endurance, as he is the only one not given a break. 2. Each fighter brings a slightly different style, size, height or reach for him to deal with. 3. To keep the champ on his toes, and fully focused on his surroundings.
