That sight is devoted to combat athletes like yourself. Galore of information about exercises you could do.
Hm...bodyweight exercises I would recomend: (I dont do MT but I do workout alot)
Pushups (specially one arm)
one leg sqats
jump rope
burpees
polymetrics

Good luck.

Alright here is my advice to you.
You cant train to be a muay thai with weights. Doing weights is simply to get stronger, witch is important beacause in this combat sport you basically use every muscle eventually in the match. So you shouldn't really just target certain muscles like always do push ups constantly. Get a all around good strong body legs arms etc by training every muscle.

If you want exercises to get a more powerfull kick lets say. Well to learn to kick you need to kick over and over. If you want to train for muay thai you need to do muay thai, constantly. Get a heavy bag speed bag refelx bag slip bag even! Get them boxing gloves on and jab, right,hook, round house, clintch, knee the bag etc. Do them with the best technique possible and as explosive as you can. THEN lets get some sparring and some pad work in to get acutal muay thai experience... you will improve waaaay faster, trust me .

I also recomend doing plyometrics idealy targeting spinning of the torso, arms, legs/feet to develope your speed strenght to add to the tranining that you get maximum streght.

and YEAH its all about technique, ALWAYS practice propper technique to develope muscle memory doing,so you do the right thing every time you strike. awlays KO POWER

most everyone has said to incorporate sparring to the workout but are you saying to spar within muay thai or is it good/ok to spar rounds against other practices/arts like karate or jujitsu??

Muay Thai, Savate, BJJ, TKD, Lau-Gar, Greco, I dont care, if you fight, you would do well to consider the points and principles in this link:

http://www.t-nation.com/article/most_recent/7_steps_to_a_balanced_fighter

NB. T-nation and biotest are linked. Whilst the info in this article is superb, the supplement suggestion plan at the end is biased towards their products, and should be viewed in a different light to the main body of the article.
