Daily Stretching Routine for Muay Thai
pdf can be downloaded near the bottom…
To build dynamic flexibility, you will need to stretch dynamically with ballistic stretches such as leg swings.
Note that the risk of injury is quite high when compared to static stretching.
To mitigate the risk of injury, make sure you get as warm as possible.
Go for a run, have a hot bath, do whatever you need to do to raise your muscle temperature. Chewing ginger actually helps quite a bit!

Here’s an infographic about the SAID principle – Specific Adaptations to Imposed Demands.
This is important to keep in mind when designing a training programme for Muay Thai
Just to emphasise how effective it is to get hot before you stretch – I’ve been doing yoga in the bath – you can stretch much further and the risk of injury is greatly reduced. My progress has been increased/accelerated massively with hot yoga at home.
