Yodsaenklai Fairtex

Anyone who’s been out to Thailand to train in Muay Thai will have no doubt experienced some Spartan weight training equipment and limited resistance training use. The majority of time is spent running, skipping, hitting bags and pads or light sparring. Although this is common place throughout the majority of Thai boxing gyms in Thailand, things are changing.

Yodsanklai Fairtex (the former super welterweight WBC Muay Thai World champion at 154 lb and former three time Lumpinee Stadium champion in the 112 and 147 lb weight classes) trains at the very well equipped Fairtex Gym in Pattaya, Thailand. During my stay at the Fairtex Gym, I’ve witnessed “Yod” using the freeweights gym and kettlebell training on strength and conditioning days – not just hitting bags and pads.

Seeing Yodsanklai in the flesh, you are struck by just how solid and muscular he is. A far cry from the skinny youngsters you see training or fighting around Thailand. Yod’s physique is that of a fighter with balanced training – both skill specific energy system work and gym based strength and conditioning training. He’s a professional fighter at the top of his game with access to training equipment that most gyms in Thailand simple can’t afford.

Forget about weight training making you too bulky to fight. Used correctly you can become stronger and more explosive than you ever could with bodyweight alone, without bulking up. Progressive overload is the key. If top fighters like Yodsanklai are exploiting these benefits then so should you.

Why does this matter for every western Muay Thai enthusiast, fighter, or coach?

Why Heavy Hitters is Different:

  • Streamlined Efficiency: The life of a Muay Thai enthusiast, coach, or fighter, especially in the West, is brimming with demands. Heavy Hitters understands that. No need for endless hours. You need potent, impactful hours. This program is your answer.

  • Real-world Results: From enthusiasts in Australia to champions in the USA, the feedback is unanimous – Heavy Hitters changes the game. Take it from Paul Banasiak:

     “From broke and broken to moving and competing better than ever. Since working with Don 3 years ago, I haven’t had a single major issue. Don gave me the confidence that has translated itself into three straight knockout wins and a WBC title.”

  • Holistic Training: It’s not merely about more power in your punches or lasting longer. It’s about cultivating a body that’s nimble, powerful, and resistant to injuries.

  • Be Part of Something Greater: Beyond the program lies a fraternity, a global assembly of like-minded souls, all driven by the singular passion to redefine their Muay Thai boundaries.

If tales of triumph intrigue you, delve deeper into Jonathan Lane’s saga – from grappling with an ACL recovery amid fatherhood to clinching the MTA NSW State Title. His secret weapon? The Heavy Hitters program.

Seize your golden chance to level up your Muay Thai journey. Remember, the doors to Heavy Hitters Barebones will shut on midnight 31st May and won’t swing open again until November 2024…

But here’s the silver lining – even if you’re not geared up to start immediately, you can reserve your spot in this cohort and start your training whenever you’re ready.
