A Muay Thai workout is very intense and it can easily burn over 1,000 calories. It takes a lot of discipline to be a Muay Thai practitioner. It involves making healthy lifestyle choices. Meals are an important aspect of training. Practitioners should have a nutrient-packed pre-workout and post-workout meal. Part of any good workout meal is hydration. Having a solid drink before, during, and after training is essential as it replenishes all the fluids and nutrients that have been lost during the session.
