I got my first fight coming up in 6 weeks.

Its actually for thai boxing, having boxed for fun on and off for a few years at home. I'm now living in thailand , have trained for 3 months at Thai boxing and would like to get in the ring and test myself.

I know that its thai boxing but I'm figuring sprint training is the same routine. I just don't want to get gased out early on and killed!

Also is it a good idea to add calisthnetics (press ups / pull ups) into the session or just stick to sprints?

I've also been told to do no more than twice a week and give the sprints a rest 1 whole week before my fight. Does this sound right?

Any help would be appreciated , a bit nervous but up for the challenge!

I would say sprint training is a great form of cardio training to do before a fight. Do it 1-2 x per week depending on how often you do your thai boxing. I would say stopping a week out is a good idea as you do not want to burn out. Use the last week to focus more on technique. Other forms of training you could look at include hill repeats and plyometric training. And yes exercises like press ups/pull ups/single leg squats etc are very good.

Thanks for getting back to me. Is the website you reccomended a free service or one I have to pay for. I'm currently training 3 days a week, twice a day , 2 days a week once a day and the sixth day I should train twice but I'm sometimes to tired or too injured to make it! I don't really have time for a full work out programme with everything else I'm doing , just want to fit two good sprint/maybe power sessions in.

The website has a members area for people to subscribe to but there is plenty of free stuff on there as well that may be of use. Please feel free to contact me if you need any more help with your conditioning training though.
