Ladies and gents
A little input if you will.
I'm training Muay Thai 2+ hours 6-7 times a weeks in the PM (fighting in March) as well as doing short but intense conditioning/weight sessions in the mornings - carries, sled, complexes, KB's etc.
I'm planning a slight deload and will replace the AM sessions with some light recovery cardio for 1-2 weeks. I live in Bangkok so it's hotter than the Devil's underpants even in the early morning, and the side walks are also either shit or non existent, so although doable not ideal.
I've got a cross trainer in the corner of my home gym (fiance bought it and used it about 3 times). I've read a few articles and comments suggesting that these are not any good for semi fasted cardio in the morning, due to the mechanics in terms of the bodies movement while on them for extended periods of time? Seems a bit majoring in the minors but what experience have the good folks had with them for this purpose?
I'd like to avoid aggravating my hips/joints in general (I'm 38 and it;s not going to help my Muay Thai either)
Thanks in advance
