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.
