I've been training in Muay Thai for about a year, working one on one with a coach based near my office. Did a couple of years boxing before that. Still happy with my coach but I thought it would be fun to join a club near my house, do some classes and get training partners. Club wants me to join beginners class - Fair enough. Problem is, every class starts with 15 minutes of high reps of bodyweight exercises, punctuated by bursts of skipping with no rest intervals as a 'warm up'. I don't mind the conditioning in itself but I'm 6' 5", 220 lbs. The next biggest guy in class must be 30lbs lighter than me. My gas tank isn't bad for a heavyweight but if I keep up all the reps with the smaller guys, I'm shattered by the time it gets to pad work. I'm significantly technically ahead of the other guys in the beginner class, but progression at this club is dependent on being on able to do burpees all day. I don't think I'll make any progress with this 'one size fits all' approach to training. Is this typical? Or do I need to find a better club? Or just lose some weight?
