Petchdam Petchyindee Academy
Coupled with some training techniques, “Baby Shark” also mixes in an edge of comedy to his Instagram feed, usually setting up practical jokes with his Petchyindee Academy team-mates.
Perhaps contrary to what most people would expect a fighters life to be like, you can be sure of some comical entertainment with Petchdam.
If serious, no-nonsense padwork videos gets you ticking, then Liam Harrison is your go-to man. With almost half-a-million followers on Instagram, he is one of the most popular Muay Thai fighters of all time.
His padwork videos with his cousin Andy Howson at Bad Company in Leeds and boxing coach John Gillies show his blistering and some-what surreal speed and power.
You can also find a full archive of elite level training tutorial videos on his website, of which he regularly posts previews on his social media.
If sharp-witted, anti-activist trolling amuses you, current ONE Championship athlete Juan Cervantes will brighten up your newsfeed.
As well as the occasional strength and conditioning or calisthenic workout video (which are really useful for any aspiring athlete), Juan also voices his own sarcastic spin on current popular and debated subjects.
Please note: If you’re into veganism and conspiracy theories, this one’s not for you. You have been warned.
