Muay Thai Workout Of The Month – December 2013
Doing intense muay thai conditioning workouts has always been one of my favorite aspects of training. instead of going through the same mundane muay thai training routine or skipping rope, shadowboxing etc. I like mixing up my training every once in awhile to keep my workouts new and exciting, By implementing kettlebells, timed circuits, body weight exercises and plyometrics, I’m able to diversify my training and improve my overall strength and conditioning.
When I first started searching youtube for the best muay thai conditioning workouts, I’d always stumble across this guy, Funk Roberts. Since his name was so awesome, I had to see what he had to offer. Although most of his workouts are tailored for MMA, he has also made some specifically for muay thai fighters like you and I. I’ve done a handful of his strength and conditioning circuits, and holy sh!@, they kick my ass!
Give this month’s workout, “The Gauntlet Muay Thai Workout” a try and see if you can survive the whole circuit!
