  • Conditioning

    Hi,
    I am about to start Muay Thai, so I was wondering if anyone can provide me with some details on how to condition myself for this sport. For example, exercises to harden the elbows, fists, shins and knees.

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

      Why would anyone do Muay Thai?
      Are you in thailand and poverished so you have to train this way?

        Because Muay Thai is a good workout and a good form of stand-up self-defense?

            Impoverished isn't it?
            Because the style works for some of us. And because once youve had the shit kicked out of you in a gym you dont fear it anymore

              Amen Jay... I guess some people aren't tough enough for it. The harder you train, the harder your body will get. Conditioning is a huge factor in determining wether you win or lose.

                They would do muay thai to kick people's asses like yours. Just kidding. But you still are an idiot.

                  People make me laugh. Anyway, like Kurt said: just get in there and train hard. That's really all you need. Otherwise look up similar threads like swisscom said.

                    It wasnt to be a form of criticism.

                    I mean to think of it, what is its lure?

                    I was looking for responses in a postive way.

                    Like it has this or that, per its pros.

                    Also, why arent there many hardcore gyms as compared to others?

                      Yet people DO ask why anyone would do TKD. Or even bash TKD. Yet there is hardcore TKD that is not even presented to the vast public. it seem to get watered once it leaves Korea.

                      My question was out of curiousity, NOT belittlement.

                        Well, actually it was to give it credit.

                        My explanation of improvished is that people who practice it in Thailand do so for financial gain. A way to rise from such a improvished state of being.

                        With such determination, was the focus to train hard.
                        Thus to be ready to win and earn wages.

                        An improvished state of being gives motivation to train harder.

                        So as I look upon Muay Thai, I look upon it as a hardcore fighting method, but shadowed by ring competiton. Such competition had financial and skillful gains.

                        However, it a complete society, I havent met people who needed to train so hard core for this type of training.

                        Bascially this is training for fighting doesn't mean that it is complete training for self defense.

                          Lose? I haven't lost for 30 years. yet I dont do Muat Thai or any of that hardcore conditioning.

                              Well Rickster, I think you possibly could have worded your statements differently if you were looking for positive feedback, but that aside:

                              Muay Thai is a very effective art, it wouldn't have gotten where it has in MMA if it weren't, don't you think? Maybe it would help you to remember that American TKD is not the same as Korean TKD. The TKD here is great for Motion Artists, beginer martial artists, and for kids. I say that for a few reasons: It helps build coordination, balance, speed, flexibility, and discipline to name a few of the benifits. However, the bulk of TKD Dojangs in the US don't put those tools together in a way that's useful for combat.

                              Also remember you are on a MT forum: The people here care about how combat-effective a style is. That may not be all they care about, but it's a factor.

                              And just as a minor side note: You seem rather criticle of Muay Thai, yet you've never tried it. You say you've never gotten your ass kicked from MT, but you've never done drill rounds, much less been in the ring. Can you honestly hold your experiances as valid chalanges to the style when you have no experiance? No firey "err" face, just thought I'd point that out to you.
