"Muay Thai is a form of Thai stand-up striking martial art that combines kicking, striking and various clinching techniques. This discipline is also known as the “art of eight limbs” as it combines the use of fists, elbows, knees and shins.
Many kicks in Muay Thai rely on the shinbone, and as such athletes will repeatedly hit a dense bag with their shins to strengthen the bone.
Muay Thai has a heavy focus on full-body conditioning, training often consists of running, shadowboxing, skipping and bodyweight resistance training.
It is important to stay properly hydrated during training and supplement with a high-quality protein supplement to promote lean muscle growth and recovery.
