Kickboxing Newb

Im just about to start kickboxing and thought id ask for some tips before i go. The training im doing is kickboxing with some mauy thai. Just wondering what sort of training i could do from home to condition my self a bit more and get my self ready.

Im 22 (too old to get anywhere??) and near 15 stone, Not fat. Im in the gym 6 nights a week and train on the bag a lot.

Should i book private tuition too?

Have fun and don't take things too seriously at this stage. As for conditioning, lots and lots of cardio. Private lessons are good too. I've found my overall game and technique really improved by taking them.

Run and thats it, all you need to hit the ground running with kickboxing is running and make sure to give your legs a good stretch. You need good cardio, a good kickboxer never stops moving. Kickboxing is not a style, its not a dance, it is a fluid motion of both body and mind.

^x2 what he said. Cardio is important in any aspect of this sport, that's why i harp on it so much.

Running is great but also make sure you are streching! its something that cant be improved in 1 week. You need to strech everyday to keep your body flexible and to constantly improve your flexibility.

I stretch when I wake up, before training or workout (during if I get tight), and before bed. Cardio is important and controlling your breathing is just as important. If you run or exercise and are winded take slow deep breathes till lungs are full and slowly exhale this will help slow your breathing. I would do HIIT style cardio too like sprint, gog, sprint, etc. remember you training for rounds not the local marathon.
