Typical Muay Thai Training Day

Whether you are trying Muay Thai for the first time or preparing for an actual fight, a solid Muay Thai workout routine is a must in order to reach your goals. Procedure and a systematic approach ensure all necessary elements are covered and allow time for them to be perfected. Of course, the intensity of any training session can be reduced or increased depending on the individual’s level, experience and needs. But, the fundamentals will remain the same along with the approach and attitude applied.

Training sessions are twice daily (morning and afternoon) and can seem quite daunting if you haven’t experienced it before. This is where our expert team at Empire Muay Thai will ease your mind and spend time to explain to you what is expected from each session based on your current experience level.

A typical training session could follow:

  • Warm Up
  • Stretching
  • Running / Skip Rope
  • Heavy Bag Work
  • Pad Rounds
  • Clinching
  • Warm Down

Training is not all about practicing the actual physical techniques! The heat and humidity of Thailand can be quite a shock to the system for anyone unaccustomed to the environment. Correct and thoughtful body management is essential to staying healthy and maximizing your training sessions.

During your training your full day schedule will be monitored by our Team to ensure your body is creating the energy required for a complete session. Staying constantly hydrated is a priority as it is easy to forget quite how much water you need to drink during a full day of training. Nutrition is also key to maintaining strength and keeping alert, which is why our meal plans are a great option for not only experiencing the delights of local Thai food but also for keeping a regular intake of calories your body will need. Training in Thailand does place your body in an unfamiliar setting, so it is important to monitor how your body reacts to the various factors of food plans, humidity, heat etc.

Lastly, rest and relaxation are critical elements of your training routine. Not allowing your body enough time to recover from the stress of a full training session will only reduce your performance during the next session. Feeling lethargic and sluggish due to improper rest could increase the chance of injury and will affect your training camp routine and overall performance.

With the careful guidance of our instructors all aspects of your Empire Muay Thai training camp will be addressed in a friendly and professional way. Becoming part of our Empire Muay Thai family will not only feed your passion for combat sports and training, but also open you up to the stunning and beautiful landscape and cultures that surrounds our home here in Khao Lak.
