Guys, how about a comprenhensive list of weight training exercises to complement my Muay Thai training? I train 3 times a week (1.5 hours each) so I think I am able to weight train twice a week. Any info on what has worked for you or how you currently train would be of great help.

Thanks

Never actually felt the need to use weights, i know that the science behind weight lifting for strength is very advanced now but still havent found the urge to start hitting the weights, I'm naturally quite big at 6'3 and 95 kilos and i train 5 nights a week with lots of floor exercises/plyometrics for strength building.

Muhamad Ali never used weifghts but mind you muhamad ali wasnt kicking anybody or clinching (Not legally Anyway)

Muhammad Ali was a black belt TKD practitioner, mind you.

He had great abs developed from kicking. Not sure if he could, but I think he could do the splits.

You learn something new every day!, maybe the TKD helped give him that exceptional footwork

you got me thinking taison and i found this link (is you tube still band in thailand?) i'm sorry if it is but i couldnt find it elsewhere.

Its Muhammad Ali vs. Antonio Inoki - 1976 (you've probably seen this before anyway) i think Ali did a lot of TKD for this fight.

It was a bit of a farse really

No.

He had his great footwork before he started training TKD under, I think it was Jhoon Ree. Anyway, he learnt that balance from great legs lended a lot of power to your punches. Also, coming from personal experiences, the torquing of your hips used much in TKD can be used with great effect in boxing for hooks and crosses, maybe something Ali picked up, but I'm not sure. It's just all speculations.
