Your body is the best piece of equipment to use when you need a good workout. Your legs are your foundation, they carry you wherever you go. You want to be sure you keep them strong. My martial arts students really understand the importance of strong legs. Muay Thai is the art of 8 limbs so your legs come into play often. No matter what fitness level you are at, combining these three leg movements will give your legs a great workout.
You can begin with a simple warm up for your body, especially your legs by jogging in place for 3-5 minutes. This helps to get your blood pumping and loosen up your joints.
It’s important that you stick to the rep count when completing this circuit. Depending on your fitness level, you may need to rest in between exercises. Give yourself 10-20 seconds between each exercise, however, try to push yourself through each motion as much as you can. You’ll feel the burn, especially during the squat pulse, but this is where the magic happens. If you feel genuine pain, stop or rest, otherwise push yourself!
