4 Ways to Amplify Your Training in Muay Thai, Boxing, and MMA

When you’re training in fighting sports such as Boxing, Muay Thai and MMA, all sports require discipline, dedication and the right gear to get you to where you want to be in the game. Training in these martial arts sports can be a fun hobby for most people, but there are others that are looking to take it to the next level. Here are 4 ways you can amplify Boxing, Muay Thai and MMA to get you into the competing stage of your journey:

1. Invest in High-Quality Fight Gear

When looking to take fighting sports from just a hobby to something more it’s important to start investing in high-quality gear. Building out your gym kit with reputable brands such as Fairtex, Arwut or Twins Special, will help ensure you are buying gear that not only looks great but will guarantee you have gear that will perform at its best capacity. 

For boxing gloves we recommend the Fairtex Boxing Gloves (BGV1), Arwut Muay Thai Boxing Gloves BG1, along with the Twins Boxing Gloves for Muay Thai (BGVL-3)

For shin guards we recommend the Twins Special Muay Thai Kickboxing Shin Guards (SGL-10), Fairtex Shin Guards SP5 or the Arwut Muay Thai Shin Guards SG3

2. Find a Gym Buddy for Motivation

Another way to amplify your training is by having someone there to motivate you and keep you accountable. Having a gym buddy will give you the level of encouragement you need to push even harder in your workouts, along with being an opponent when you are sparring and striking.

3. Utilise Resistance Bands in Your Workouts

Resistance training is very underrated, with so many people missing out on opportunities to enhance their training by building on their strength when working out. Simply tie them to a pole and work on targeting specific muscle groups to improve flexibility and the control of muscle movement. 

We recommend starting off with a thinner, lightweight band then increasing the weight using the GND Fitness Resistance Bands // 5 Weight Options, or opt for the bundle which allows you to use all the weight options available GND Fitness Resistance Band Pack // 5 Band Pack.

4. Prioritise Recovery

You should always be prioritising recovery after every session to avoid the risk of injury and help with muscle recovery. Ever worked out and noticed the pain in your muscles was affecting how you worked out the next day? If the answer is yes, then you need to be focusing more on recovery after every single workout. The GND Foam Roller // Black Speckle, GND Foam Roller and the GND Spiky Ball are great recovery additions that you should be adding to your gym bag to alleviate the soreness in your muscles.


Lastly, amplifying your training in Boxing, Muay Thai and MMA requires a well-rounded approach. Choose high-quality products from reputable brands, find a gym buddy for accountability, start using resistance bands to intensify your workout and prioritise recovery. With all these in place you’ll start to see a change in the way you workout and results will start showing up faster then they ever have before.
