Talking I`m NEW, so need to know a LOT

How are you guys, good?

I need your help really, i`m 19 years old, height is 180 cm, and weight is 72kg. I used to visit gym before, but later I quit it, and start to use alkochol, smoke weed, other drugs, well and pretty often But the important thing is that I want to get back on track and start the new, healthy life. After Il be in a shape I was thinking to start muay thai trainings, so first I need to start making some flexible exercises at home right? Could you guys help me and tell me what should I do, to speed up whole body moves, to speed up reaction, to lift the legs high as possible?

Yeah I know that there is a lot of information about it, but its really hard to find it , atleast to me.

So I`l try the easiest way, and ask for people who really knows, waiting for word

Yo

I've trained Muay Thai for 4 years and Kick Boxing for 2.

Muay Thai is the best most brutal form of combat sport in my opinion. However, it is amazing to learn and get into. Can't give the art of MT enough praise!

You don't have to do "flexable exercises" at home before attempting to learn Muay Thai, just be sensible don't go mad at the start. Nobody is good straight away and everybody has to learn. A good gym/teacher will make sure the class/students strech before and after the main part of the session. You may also do some shadow boxing, kicking, knees, clinch before padwork or sparring (later in the game). Shadow work helps limber you up a bit before getting into the moves and techniques. Shadow boxing is normally done after basic streches. As you go to the class regularly and strech regulary before and after ... you will limber up naturally.

Concerning throwing high kicks don't expect to be able to do them straight away(at least not properly) and work your way towards them slowly. Get the basic kicks, clinch and punching down helping your hips get used to the motions needed to throw up a cro cop lef high kick special! Once you have your hips in good shape throwing high kicks or any sort of kicks becomes easier. Many people even after years fo training still dont' turn their hips enough into kicks so its important to get ti right at the start before trying to be a bad ass throwing high ones.

Speed comes from practice and feeling. If you want to throw hard and heavy you will find you will be slower. If you want to whip out the punches quick you will sacriffice a bit of power. Depends on what th eoppenent is doing as well. Its up to you, your body and natural vibe will determine power to speed and comfortable punching pace. If your not as fast as you want to be just practice basic speed techniques on a bag.

hope this helps.

Just make sure you don't overstretch and pull a muscle, that really sucks.

Of course not. Doing streching exercises at home will do you no harm at all. Just make sure you are doing them correctly and dont injure yourself.
