Guest Post: Muay Thai training as a method for weight loss
Training Muay Thai recently became a really popular method to lose weight, especially among women. As we all know Muay Thai is a combat sport but you don’t have to engage in professional fighting to practice it. Women usually imagine Muay Thai as a sport where two men beat each other violently and that’s it. But Muay Thai is much more of that.
Muay Thai helps lose weight, burn fat and puts no stress on the body. Muay Thai works all the muscles because of the way it is used (all limbs including knees and elbows are used), and it will tone up your muscles and make you slimmer.
Of course you can practice Muay Thai training at a competitive level but you can also hit your local gym and practice it there. It is up to you and your goals that you want to achieve.
No matter what type of training you will choose Muay Thai is excellent for you and it is never too late to start with the training or start training again. Muay Thai will help you lose stress and relax which means it will make you happier!
Many gyms such as Suwit muay thai offer special programs for Muay Thai and fitness professionals add a list of things in addition to training that will boost the weight loss and strengthening effects.
But how does exactly Muay Thai helps weight loss?
Muay Thai burns calories which mean it helps you lose weight and Muay Thai is also known for the benefits it brings to the cardiovascular system. Because practicing Muay Thai puts all the muscles at work, your lungs and heart must work harder to get the necessary levels of oxygen. In this way you will improve your cardiovascular system. Any training that makes you sweat and breathe a little bit heavier is great because it means that your body is active.
Muay Thai is useful for both women and men and with one session you can burn up to 500 calories!
