Martial arts has become a favorite way for many people to lose weight due to its fun factor as well as emphasis on eating healthy. For a better understanding about the link between martial arts and weight loss, here's a short overview.
The key to losing weight through martial arts involves dedication and willingness to train, focus and discipline on training, and proper nutrition. Although Martial arts training alone can help shed pounds, coupled with proper nutrition is the key. All three mentioned components must work simultaneously to enable weight loss through martial arts. Proper nutrition involves eating foods that are rich in vitamins, protein, essential fats and minerals to give the body health and strength. The training part involves burning body fat making your body lean faster. Some of the best weight loss martial arts forms include the following.
This form focuses on building power. Most techniques involve delivering powerful strikes using your limbs. The movements demand a lot from the muscles making this martial art form excellent for burning fat underneath the skin and building muscle. Mastery of Karate requires regular training to build strength and sharpen reflexes. This will help you burn calories and shed fat.
Kung Fu and Taekwondo
Kung Fu is quite diverse. It has many disciplines, each involving complex movements that combine jumping, punching, kicking and other body movements. Training is geared towards increasing flexibility and speed. Taekwondo on the other hand focuses a lot on kicking and footwork and requires a lot of body movement. Training in either or both arts will provide a good cardio and strength workout which will accelerate your fat loss.
MMA, Kickboxing and Muay Thai
These three disciples are quite intense. Perfecting any of these requires that your body be physically and mentally fit. The key to mastery is power, speed and endurance. A single training session works on all three aspects and the intensity of the session will burn fat deposits fast.
Tai Chi has been extensively studied and shown to be one of the best martial art forms for people who want to lose weight regardless of age or fitness level. It's therefore a great choice for beginners and elderly weight loss enthusiasts. Mastery of this art form can take time but it's always well worth it in terms of weight loss achieved.
