Practicing Muay Thai To Get Fit Tips to help you get in shape 1

The number of Muay Thai gyms in Thailand and in other parts of the world continues to grow which highlight how popular it has become. Although the discipline has been around for centuries, it has gained massive following in the 20th century. In the past, it was used by Thai soldiers in actual combat and had been mandatory training for all soldiers from 1350 to 1921. Today, it is seen as a form of self-defense and as a combat sport, even recognized as a very effective striking base within the MMA community. Muay Thai may look pretty tough, but it is not all about the fight. The discipline’s kicks and punches can spice up a fitness routine and help you lose excess weight and get that body you like. Many people are discouraged from taking Muay Thai as a way to get fit because it conjures images of kickboxing. While it is true that as a martial art it involves jabbing, punching and kicking, you will also get a whole body workout that will keep you strong, agile, and flexible. Like most competitive full contact fighting sports, it relies heavily on body conditioning. Training regimens can include running, shadowboxing, rope jumping, body weight resistance exercises, medicine ball exercises, abdominal workouts, and in many cases, weight training. It is common for practitioners to train daily. Training can include several rounds broken by short periods of rest. Unlike other combat sports, Muay Thai techniques use the entire body.

It is commonly referred to as the art of eight limbs because aside from your feet and hands, you can also use your elbows, knees, and shin to hit the opponent. What makes Muay Thai unique is that each punch, kick and block requires rotating the hip. This will help make your hip more flexible and less prone to problems later on in life. Many of these techniques also recruit the core muscles, which is why Muay Thai’s conditioning regimen involves strengthening that area. Improving core muscle strength can also provide a host of benefits, including relief from back pain and improved posture. Interested in learning this sport?
