In my opinion it would be beneficial to add in some sort of explosive exercise because the carryover would be much greater than most compound lifts. If you have an olympic bar and some decent weight you could supplement the bench with a clean, snatch or something like that, but it would affect your squatting and deadlifting so you would need to change up the rotation. Keep in mind I dont know shit about muay thai, just a little about lifting.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Weight Training

If you want to lose fat or change your body, one of the most important things you can do is lift weights. Diet and cardio are equally important, but when it comes to changing how your body looks, weight training wins hands down.
