How to get the most out of your Muay Thai workouts?
You have to keep track of your progress and push yourself both physically and mentally to a new level of fitness. Bruce Lee once famously stated: "There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them."
Some people prefer to train alone, others prefer to train with a team. From my experience, I can confirm that training with a dedicated group of people is much more effective. Group training provides more mental pressure to push oneself to be better and to train harder.
Not to mention that the most basic parts of Muaythai training, like Thai pads training and sparring, are by design meant to be trained with the others. Presented techniques are also great for a Dutch kickboxing workout, which is similar in many aspects to Muay Thai.
Muay Thai is designed to promote the level of fitness required for ring competition. That demands a lot of commitment from fighters but also offers a great reward in a shape of a supreme level of fitness.

and Stamina workout:
Most of the exercises are quite universal like Thai pad training and plyometrics are good for both: speed and explosive power. In general power - which is a combination of strength and speed - and stamina are the most important parts of a comprehensive Muay Thai workouts.
And the most effective exercise of them all is a full power sparring, which improves virtually every aspect of your physical performance and it makes you give everything in the ring.
