Muay Thai and Fitness Exercises from Thailand

There are many exercises and activities that can be adopted to lose a bulk of fatty tissue. This is where the intensity of exercises really rises up a notch as we enter the bodybuilding domain of this article. When you want to generate big changes in your body for any upcoming contest or simply for your own satisfaction, you can bet it will take consistent hard work. You can do all these activities either in a training camp or alone as well.

We will begin with cutting. There are many reasons why weight or fat loss is highly recommended in many conditions. Obesity is a major and direct contributor to cardiovascular anomalies like Atherosclerosis, Hypertension, Myocardial Infarction and Coronary Artery Disease. The excessive calories in your body are stored up as fat tissue and the excessive fat in your body predisposes to the formation and deposition of lipid plaques in your arteries which can precipitate the above conditions much sooner than you think.

Fatty tissue also proportionally increases a person’s resistance to Insulin which is why obesity is linked to type II Diabetes. Losing all this extra weight not only frees you from ending up in these life-threatening conditions but also liberates your joints and bones from the burden of carrying all of it around. Not to mention a slimmed down and well-toned body is a major confidence booster.

Another routine called ‘Core Training’ that is usually practiced in training camps. It builds your core muscle groups with the quintessential bodybuilding exercises like bench press, deadlift, squat and more but employing high volume training routines where you perform an exercise, let’s say bench press, with a weight lighter than 80% of your one-rep max for higher number of repetitions, say 15-20. This routine builds your core muscles while burning excessive fat at the same time, and therefore is a staple in many weight loss programs.

A slightly advanced technique called ‘High-Intensity Interval Training’ or HIIT is used to improve cardiovascular function and decrease fat simultaneously, but in a shorter amount of time as compared to steady state cardio. In it, you basically perform a short burst of the relevant exercise at your near max or max weight, followed by a less intense recovery period. Repeat until you are too exhausted to continue. This training lays the foundation principle of Muay Thai.

As you can probably deduce, this routine is not for the elderly, diabetics and hypertensive patients as the sudden increase in muscular and cardiac load may be too much for their bodies to handle. Therefore, I recommend you perform this routine only when prescribed by a professional trainer.

Cutting mainly depends on how you want to achieve your goal and how your trainer guides you through it. Couple your workout routine with a diet favoring caloric deficit, and you will be on your way to that beach body you always dreamed of.

Apart from these exercises studies say that, there are many cardiac sports that help us in losing our weight. Muay Thai from  is one of them. It is an amazing sports and exercises at the same time. It’s a well-known physical activity across Thailand which is not only being played by the natives but the tourists have also shown a great interest in adopting Muay Thai is a recreational as well as fitness venture.
