Training in thailand . I need information and advice from real people
Hi there folks, I havent posted in many years. The story is too long to tell. I want to go to thailand and train eat and sleep for 6 months with access to the full range of supplements. Including hgh and growth factors etc, I had a body at the moment that looks like a pile of shit and I want go beyond my former glory. Any one thats been, please share your experiences and if you are in thailand and own a gym or work in one please provide me with any and all information you can provide. I will never be able to get access to legit gear in this country due to some of my mistakes.. So I am going to move to one where its legal. Happy body= Content mind=content life.
All your input will be much appreciated.
to my fellow trainees.. I am stuck and I need help. want to help a stranger then please do. I help ppl randomly.. hoping someone out there thats real and will give me proper advice.
i'm not a cop or from customs... but i know they will be reading this.. to you i give you the big finger..
I will start you on your way...
You got one of the popular ones Patong Beach at Phuket. Patong gym is good and has around 60KG dumbells from memory. Train there before the late afternoon to miss the busy time unless you are looking at making a mate to train with. I do not mind the gym just head down and train. Late afternoon it gets busy and you get a few show pony's that are then to flex and take up room. Not saying im a god I just am there to train but some just love to flex and chat. Anyway off topic lol
Price is cheap to train there but off the top of my head I cant tell you. Further along the same road there is a two story gym with training upstairs. ITs a very simple gym and more cheap but depending on your skill level you can strugle to get weights to go high enough. I trained there a few times and its ok you can get by but more if on a budget.
Food is every where to eat but catch is everything is fried or high carb's. When I was living there I just bought a small gass cooker for my varanda and cooked my chicken breast myself. I still ate out veg' and chicken and so on but did some lean meals myself. Chicken , pork raw at market $3 to $4 a kg.
I took chicken breast to regular rest' I ate and asked can I pay you to cook this. They did and thought we all new grilled and it came back deep fried and battered lol
It took 3 days to teach one place to boil me 6 eggs at a time. They got it right and then cook took few days off and hand teach new cook lol I love the place but takes time to get in your groove there.
I never hung or lived at pattaya but from mates they say it is cheap housing and food and training so its a options. I have a mate doing 4 months there now so I will see what he says for my next run.
Bangkok is great place once you deal with its size and lack of english but that goes for most places. Do ya self a favour, if you are going to train eat and apart from that sit on ya ass and grow instead of getting a tourist 3 month visa get a 1 year student visa. $1000 Au buys you a visa and 200 hours of thai lessons in a school. You choose the days and hours. If you want fit in learn the lingo you will thanks yourself for doing it. So many doors open and you will get more respect for giving a f**k to learn their language.
Bangkok has a park gym that is well not really that good but you could use it. There are also fitness first gyms there but as everywhere they are western priced. Once you stay in thai long time you get use to thai price and you become a tight ass lol
As for sup's rules are about here we don't talk about that plus hey we don't want everyone coming over here lol When you arrive if you have issues finding somethings send me a message I will point you right if I can.
There is one key down fall to training in thai and that is the ever so beautifull women. Them and the cheap booze and million bars break many a training plan lol
ANyway that is some info to get you started, Just remember its there country and learn to go with the flow and learn some thai. Don't expect things to run like western countries as it never does.
