Ironically, a fighter’s enthusiasm to dominate in the ring might lead them down the wrong path—both in training for muscular endurance and strategically on fight night.

By making smarter decisions regarding how you train your Muay Thai conditioning, you’ll not only enhance your physical performance but also elevate your fight IQ.

In this muscular endurance episode, you’ll find:

  • Tactical techniques for varying punch and kick combinations during training, maximising work rate and endurance that transfers to ring performance
  • Actionable tips for addressing localised fatigue without sacrificing overall performance.
