Pre-conditioning.....

I've decided that after this year of school and I move back home for the summer I'm gonna start training in some Muay Thai. I was wondering if anyone has some tips for how I can pre-condition my body to easily take the abuse of training. i.e. I would like to know how to condition my shins and feet to be able to kick without it hurting me , or my fists so that I can punch harder without hurting my knuckles, etc.

A little background on me.....I dont work out at all really right now other than walking everywhere and scaling stairs on campus I used to play sports in High School, Im real lean and im 6'0 tall. Im just curious of some techniques I can use to prepare my body for training in about 5-6 months. it would also help if the techniques you describe can be done in a relatively small dorm room.



The hard work of one, does more than the prayers of millions.

the first thing i'd work on is my cardio. if your cardio sucks (i'm not saying yours does it might be really good) its gonna be hard to focus on technique in class.

now to work on your pain tolerance i'd suggest getting the hardest heavy bag you can find. throw some punches and kicks without wearing gloves or any other padding. after a while your knuckles and shins should get stronger. another good way to strenghten your knuckles is doing pushups on your knuckles. when this gets easy try doing them on cinder blocks.

The problem with hitting a bag without any protection is that you can take the skin off your knuckles if you don't hit it cleanly, especially with crosses, hooks, uppercuts, and especially with canvas bags. IMO you should always wear something when you're hitting a heavy bag, even if it is only bandages.

good point you should weat wraps or something. i just meant you shouldn't wear gloves or thick padding cause then your knuckles won't get tougher.
