Fat-Burning MMA Routine


Muay Thai kickboxing is the premier martial art in Thailand and a major component of any MMA fighter's game. With its combo of devastating punches, kicks, and elbow and knee strikes, it's also great for getting abs. Just look at any Muay Thai fighter's body if you doubt its benefits. The abs these guys develop, both aesthetic and functional, can't be carved at your average health club.
