TMTG: Why You Should Overtrain

The Muay Thai Guys Podcast – Episode 79

Overtraining is a weird topic to discuss because there are a variety of intricate philosophies on it… including ours.

When I first started Muay Thai my philosophy on overtraining was quite different than it is now. Before I thought it was important to avoid overtraining so you can continue on with your training without worrying about burnout – but now I feel like overtraining (at least once in your career) is a crucial for your success because it will develop mental toughness while giving you a better understanding of how hard you can push your body.

In this most recent podcast, Paul and I discuss our evolution of theory when it comes to overtraining.
