Why Muay Thai training?

Thai Boxing, or Muay Thai, is one of Thailand’s strongest traditions, with a recorded history in the region dating back to the 16th century. Successful boxers become huge celebrities in Thailand but for many it is a fun and intense workout. Muay Thai is sometimes referred to as ‘the art of the eight limbs’ because it trains the use of hands, elbows, knees and shins to strike opponents. Requiring serious core engagement, Muay Thai provides a well-rounded workout and good cardio training.

Practicing Muay Thai for Weight Loss: Cardio & Fat Burning Workout

It is the ideal cardiovascular activity for its repeated routines of punching, kicking and sparring. The movements are done in to 3-5 rounds. This intense interval speeds up the heart rate, slows it down, and then speeds it up again.

This conditioning form boosts metabolism and burns more fat than constant exercise. It sheds off that extra weight while building up your endurance.

Five moves in 3-5 rounds for weight loss:

  • A series of hard and fast kicks in the pads or the bag. Give it all you’ve got.
  • Thirty-second punching drills. Allow yourself only 10 seconds rest in between rounds.
  • Pad work with a trainer where you give your absolute 100%.
  • Repetitions of 100-200 knees and front kicks in the bag.
  • Rounds of 100-200 metre speed run. Feel free to pull a car tire as you run for extra weight.
