Starting Muay Thai On Tuesday

Hey Folks, Wondered if you guys can give me some advice.

I have been thinking of taking up Muay Thai for a while now and this Tuesday I will finally stop thinking about it and go to my class.

I'm 27 and have never done any form of martial arts before.

I'm 6' 3" but only weigh 11 stone (155 Pounds) so, I'm basically a very skinny guy. I am reasonably flexible and have always been able to do high kicks etc.

I am quite a commited guy so I'm not worried about how much work is involved, what I am worried about though is my fitness.

Even though I am very slim, I smoke 20 ***s a day and my fitness is really poor, I'm pretty sure that it's just my lungs that I need to sort out!

I have heard that you don't need to be a bulky guy for Muay Thai but I am going to need to sort out my conditioning.

What kind of excersise's are best for me to sort out my fitness and conditioning, I'm a hard worker but I need to sort this out before I get right into anything.

Thanks

6'3 & 11 stone? Bloody Hell. Anyway that doesn't really matter. I'm sure whatever Muay Thai class you start will be pretty intense so fitness would be key. It's also not the best starting a Muay Thai class by getting fit but eliminating that with 20 ***s.

Sorting out your fitness? Well I would advise jogging for around 20-30 minutes 3 times a week. Better still get on the treadmill and eat healthy, that's key.

I know, I've always been a tall streak of p***!

Can't put weight on for the life of me, anyway, I'm quitting smoking obviously but am worried that by all the training I'm going to lose even more weight and disapeer!

I guess I should go over to the Nutrition section and get some advice on bulking up just a little!

Well if it's any help, MyProtein is a cheap enough supplier to help you bulk up. Tablets & protein will help (Y)

Thumbs up

You won't loose more weight from quitting the cigarettes, you will gain weight. Cigarettes are an appetite suppressant and the only legal product that kills most of its users. I quit 10 months ago and have saved 2,799$ in addition to the obvious health benefits. Good Luck!

No, you'll end up with a shitty weight gainer. Go to a grocery store and but some potatoes and dead animals. Start eating like a man.

All I can say is you should start working on your conditioning and balance. Before knowing anything about Muay Thai if you have good athletic ability you will have an edge. Start running, do sprints, jump rope, just work on your conditioning. You should also work on stretching even though you say you are limber. Good Luck and have fun.

I'm not trying to be rude, but no I wouldn't. A lot of people think they eat a lot, most hardgainers think they do and in reality they don't. You on the other hand would probably get some perspective if I wrote out a days eating back when I seriously needed to put on weight after I came off ***s. At the start the amount of food I had to eat almost made me sick until I got used to it.
