To be eligible for May Thai competition, you and your trainer must determine your weight division and then concentrate your training at this weight. Several factors have to be considered in determining the best-suited weight division, such as your current weight, your percentage of body fat, your ɹght style, and the competitive conditions.
Your percentage of body fat should be as low as possible. It is typically 8–10 percent for professional male Thai boxing athletes, and somewhat higher for female athletes. The percentage of body fat can also be higher in amateurs, who don’t face the same physical demands. A high proportion of fat means that an athlete is not fully trained.
The athlete will then compete in a higher weight division, where the opponents will be stronger. In this situation, athletes can compete only if they are technically clearly superior. If a Moya Thai hater’s body fat is 15 percent, it can be reduced to about 6 percent through intensive training and the correct nutrition.
At a weight of 170 pounds, this means a reduction in body fat of 10 pounds without a loss of performance. Further slimming can be achieved only by reducing muscle mass, which leads to less strength and deterioration in performance
If you want to improve your May Thai performance while maintaining your gut weight, you have to make sure that your calorie intake corresponds more or less to the calories you burn. This applies equally to Moya Thai– speciɹc training, stamina training, and power training.
Eat healthy food such as lean meat, ash, whole-grain products, fruits, fresh vegetables, and essential fats. Don’t exercise on an empty stomach. Consume carbohydrates and protein. It’s best to eat a main meal about three hours before training and to eat a carbohydrate-rich snack, such as a banana, about an hour before you start. You will then be able to bring your best performance during training
