How does Muay Thai help with good health?
Muay Thai is popularly referred to as the art of the 8 limbs. It is a combat sport that has set skills which the fighters execute to attack/block.
It helps to reduce weight loss and burns calories.
From personal experience, an average Muay Thai fighter burns a lot more calories in the training gym/camp than the ‘extreme’ jogger. The training activities in Muay Thai will help to increase body metabolism, which makes it ‘burn’ stored fats in the body. In Muay Thai camps, you will get less fat and more muscular.
It is a good stress therapy
Experts/psychologists believe that deep physical activities like Muay Thai are a good stress reliever for the body. Punching a dummy for 30 mins, can ‘steal your mind’ so much that you forget about your anxieties. The hormones secreted in the body after activities like Muay Thai will kick out stress from your body.
The training in camps will also build your endurance levels against worries.
Good for the Heart
The heart is the ‘pump’ of our body and needs regular ‘stretching,’ especially around the muscles. You exercise the Cardio-vascular muscles of your heart anytime you engage in anaerobic activities like skipping, squatting, punching, kicking, or weight-lifting. And aerobic activities such as; jogging or running improves the quality of air that enters the heart.
All activities are Muay Thai related and save you from future heart conditions.
Fluid hip and joints movement
While throwing a kick during a training session, your hips serve as the ‘pivot’ of attack and balance. Regular practice with your hips this way will make you more mobile and lithe in movement. Both men and women can prevent joint and hips related problem in the future (Rheumatism, aches, etc.) with activities like this.
Mental wellness and coordination
For good health, our mental well-being is just as important as the physical state. Muay Thai fights/training have a lot to do with your brainpower more than physical power. You have to be quick to block attacks, strike, counter-strike, dodge, etc. These pieces of training will leave you with strong reflexes, foresight, and good anticipation.
