Why I Chose Muay Thai

I chose Muay Thai as a sport for 2 main reasons : fitness and self-defense. I chose this sport over other sports or fitness regimens, such as gymnastics, spinning, or Pilates, as I felt that it would be a better fit for me and provide superior results. I have found it to be a most superior form of training. It is an excellent form of training for purposes of overall physical conditioning, especially when it comes to increasing endurance, resilience, and overall physical and mental toughness. It is a very intense form of conditioning that will help increase your pain threshold. For weight-loss purposes, an hour of Muay Thai is superior to an hour of hiking or cycling.
I have found Muay Thai to also be a superior form of training compared to weight-training with light weights and multiple repetitions. It will only benefit you, however, if you are willing to push yourself past your comfort zone. Sometimes when I am training, I begin to feel exhausted, this is the point at which my mind is disciplined to direct me to complete my workout and ignore the exhaustion. This mental discipline is very important, the mind must have faith that the pain threshold can be surpassed.
When training Muay Thai, I have found that I can eat all that I want, simply because the training burns calories so quickly. I never follow any extreme diets, I eat normal, healthy foods such as pasta, tuna, fruits, vegetables, and I drink plenty of water. Eating healthy, normal foods such as these will help maintain strength and health better than fad diets.
I keep my training schedule at 2 to 3 times per week. I do not train more frequently because my schedule is so busy and I also prefer to have a more toned, curvy body. If a woman trains more frequently at Muay Thai, she will tend to have a thinner, more muscular body, which is perfectly fine, it is just not the look I am pursuing. I train Muay Thai in conjunction with my work as a fitness model and there have been occasions when I had bruises on my legs from the training when I was ready to do a photo shoot, however, I was able to cover this up with makeup.
Unfortunately, our world today can be a dangerous place for a woman. It is good for a woman to be trained in a martial art for self-defense purposes. A woman must be prepared to protect herself if she finds herself threatened by an aggressor. Muay Thai is a great form of training to help provide women with self-defense skills to help them stay safe. Muay Thai teaches a variety of effective strikes and kicks that can be very painful to the recipient. An aggressor who attacks a woman trained in Muay Thai will be very sorry indeed. Muay Thai also helps give women strength of character and improves self-esteem.
Many more women have been training and competing in Muay Thai in recent years. Competition-level Muay Thai obviously requires a greater time commitment to training and greater attention to diet. Women training in Muay Thai include beautiful models such as Catherine Vandareva and Gina Carano, and others who have demonstrated that it is possible to simultaneously compete in Muay Thai and also be successful in the modeling industry.
I hope you have enjoyed this article and that you will consider looking into this great sport, especially you ladies looking for a fun and effective way to get in shape and develop self-defense skills at the same time. Always remember to train hard, have discipline, and learn from your trainer or coach and you will have many successful days ahead.





Women and Crossfit

I enjoy training with Crossfit because is both fun and effective.I have discovered Crossfit to be more effective for losing weight than other fitness regimens, and Crossfit gives you fast results. While you are losing weight, you will also see a marked and steady increase in strength as well. I find Crossfit to be especially fun because of the variety of exercises and the frequent changes in routine, this helps to keep it more interesting than the typical gym routine. Crossfit consists of a mix of balance training, cardio, and resistance training.Crossfit will provide you with a healthy challenge, both physically and psychologically, it helps to build character. You will feel good in body and spirit after training awhile this way. Once you have become adept at Crossfit, you will be conditioned for any other type of training you may want to try. 








Crossfit prepares you for to face any challenge. I like to compete with myself when training with Crossfit, improve my personal best records. I worked steadily at my Crossfit training and was constantly breaking my own records, accomplishing more exercise volume in less time as I practiced Crossfit. I don't compete with others when I train, I focus on self-improvement and breaking my own records, improving my personal bests.I was used to hard training, however, the first day I trained with Crossfit, I felt like I was going to die! After training in it for awhile, I became better conditioned to the regimen. I have noticed my strength has improved, I have excellent endurance, and my speed and conditioning has been improved by Crossfit. Crossfit is also helping me to improve balance and maintain flexibility. I enjoy the Crossfit style of training, look forward to my workouts. I primarily train for strength and health and Crossfit delivers on both. I make my main training focus health, that should be the priority, rather than external appearance. Crossfit will help you with your appearance, however. You can have a great body without the expense of plastic surgeries by using Crossfit methods. I don't pay attention to critics of Crossfit, it is working well for me and I am continuing with it.Just remember to train with an eye towards health and have fun in your life and training. Maintain balance in your life, don't become too obsessed with training and neglect other aspects of life, or other interests. Eat well, don't worry about dieting while doing Crossfit. The exercises will burn fat from you, be sure to eat well so that you are healthy and have good energy. Eat like a cavewoman and train like a beast, bahaha

Hard and Curvy Glutes


It is important for us women have a hard and curvy glutes. If you want to have hard and beautiful glutes , try these exercises. You can do them at the gym or in your home. The important thing is just do it, 2 or 3 times a week.
For people who start now, it is better to perform 3 sets of 12 to 15 repetitions. For advanced trainers, 3 to 4 sets of 10 to 12 reps. Dress appropriately in workout gear and have a bottle of water near you. Switch on the radio to the music you like and let´s go! Powerful music is the best.

Start with the squat, it’s the best exercise for great glutes. Trust me, my glutes are not photoshopped, they are real and I have them thanks to proper exercise. I’m a woman who loves to be natural, no plastic surgery for me.
1) Squat
Stand with feet hip width, and maintain a straight back. Squat slowly as if you were to sit on a chair, then back up slowly. 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps.
If you are at the gym, you can do these with a barbell. If at home, you can perform without weights. Up and down, start to enjoy the exercise. Put on your favorite music and do it. It only takes a few minutes. You can do these in your home, on the beach, or even in your garden .
2 ) Lunges
Stand with feet together, hands on your waist. Step forward and bend your leg to a 90-degree angle, then return to standing and repeat with each leg. You have two options here. You can do static lunges or dynamic. Static: 12 reps with one leg, then 12 with the other; Dynamic one rep with your right leg, then one with your left and alternate until you have completed 12 reps with each leg. Perform it 3 sets of with 12 reps.If you are not a beginner, use a barbell on your shoulders or 2 dumbbells to increase the difficulty.

3) Kick on the Mat
Get on a mat on all-fours, use a mat for do this exercise, to protect your knees. Maintain a straight back always. Kick up one leg, then the other. Repeat this 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps.  The gym has a special machine for this, but you can do it at home as well.
4)Press for Glutes
Lying on the mat, separated your legs to hip-width. Elevate the hips and push hard with your glutes. Raise forcefully and lower slowly. Well I consider this very easy for people who want to take care of their body. Take a couple of minutes and do it. I started with that and now go to the gym. You will feel better and look better.
All you need is good food, water and exercise is. If you would like to contact me for on line training, my email is : claudiarivarelli@hotmail.com
