Muay Thai sport specific training has it’s place. But there are hidden risks.
Many fighters don’t realise there’s a tipping point where more sport-specific training stops helping and starts increasing overuse injury risk instead.
The more training hours you put in, and the more years you’ve been in the game, compounds this risk.
