Muay Thai: Surge Workout Fuel, Plazma, MAG-10?


#1

I’ve been doing muay thai training 3 to 4 days per week, and doing my weightlifting (full-body workouts) twice per week.

My muay thai sessions are either 1 hour or 2 hours in total, depending on the day, but basically amount to extended HIIT work, it seems to me: either rounds of pad work or rounds of technical sparring, all of which leave you drenched in so much sweat you look like you just jumped in the ocean by the time you’re done.

For both performance maximization during muay thai training and for muscle mass preservation, what would be the ideal peri-muay-thai-workout supplementation to use? I used the old Surge Workout Fuel and liked it a lot, so I look forward to trying the new one. Any point in using Plazma and/or MAG-10, or some combo, in addition to or instead of the new Surge Workout Fuel (when it comes out)?

Thanks.

Good question.

Many athletes are using <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma before and during tough practices or when competing. If it’s a shorter session and there’s no real heavy lifting, some will use <a href="http://www.T-Nation.com/store/products/MAG-10"target=“new”>MAG-10.

The new formula of <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/surge-workout-fuel"target=“new”>Surge Workout Fuel (coming very soon) or Plazma would be the best choices for your sport. You won’t need both, just one or the other. Hard to go wrong either way, but I’m thinking the extra super-hydration catalysts in Surge Workout Fuel may be best for your situation.

Thanks Chris. For longer muay thai sessions (2 hours), would it make sense to add some MAG-10 in with the SWF to stave off catabolism? If so, (a.) how much MAG-10 and (b.) could I mix it together with the SWF (one combined drink)?

Thanks again.

No need to mix them together. That could even negatively affect the performance of each supplement. Better to just use more Surge Workout Fuel as needed during, then have a post-workout pulse of Mag-10.

Great, thanks again, Chris!

Follow-up question: Any idea when the new Surge Workout Fuel drops? :slight_smile:

EDIT: Nevermind. I just saw your update in the other thread about the ETA. Gracias.

Yep, about two weeks or so.
