At home bag?

I have just started Muay Thai and i'm wondering if getting a heavy bag at the house will do good or harm? I can see how it would benefit but i also see how my technique could suffer. any thoughts would be appreciated.

If you've got the space and money, get one. Just make sure you use proper form when doing bag work and if you feel you're doing something wrong, stop! Stop! Stop!
Check with your trainer afterwards. The worst thing you could do is develope bad habits regarding form.

I think it would be great for conditioning the fists and shins, as well as strenghting the wrists and developing power. Be careful not to go all out on it when you first use it to avoid injuries. A sprained or broken wrist is no fun at all.
Also, if you're planning on hitting it hard, wrap your hands and wear bag gloves. Your hands will love you for it once you're hitting your 50's.

Once again, have fun.

The weight is often determined by what it is filled with. I wouldn't get the hardest one there, instead I would go for something that gives a reasonable amount of give that's nice to the joints but still holds it's shape well.

Get the heaviest one you can find. I got the 70lbs bag and I knock this bag around with ease, it moves a lot more than I like :*(

ill prob get a heaver one in the future.

I got myself a 100 lbs bag last year and it works great. It still moves around a fair bit when you have a good work-out so I wouldn't go any lighter than that.
