If muay thai is not practiced every day then try it the other way around. It might get very tiring but just make sure you rest a lot. Don't plan on getting only 4 hours of sleep at night or something like that. Over the summer i was biking around 200 miles a week(5-6 days) with 2 hours of lifting in the gym, 6 days a week, right after. It was exhausting but it is possible.
Fatigue what I'm worried about. I was wondering how far can you push it? With weights I could tell how much I could do because of my body aching the next day or two.
With bodyweight excercises, there is never really aching but just that feeling of being tired. I just don't want to burn out. Obviously, lifting weights for a specific body part isn't possible everyday but it seems like body weight exercises are fine everyday.
Sometimes I rest a couple of days after Muay Thai because I get pretty beat up. I've only been doing it for about 6 months (and love it) but my body is only now starting to get used to getting kicked, being up on the balls of my feet all of the time, etc.
