Thai Boxing for beginners

If you are practicing Muay Thai Boxing and you want to try yourself in competition the best to start with some interclub fights. You have the same feeling just like at the competition but the referee wants to keep the strength level equal and keep the technical details in focus! When we are going there we have a simple preparation for this event because to get ring experience is very important if you want to compete later so keep it simple as much possible. Simple never means easy so be well prepared :o)

The foundation of every sports is strength If you stronger everything is easier, of course very important every technical details too but doesn’t matter how good techniques you have if you getting tired after 2-3 punches. Even  high level if 2 very good fighter has a fight approximately with same technical level probably the winner is going to be who has better condition.

From beginner level some simple drills to get better strength level. We are using as a warm up sometimes too but if you do more intensively helps to get strength, cardio and make your technical level better at the same time!

  • 30 sec shadow boxing
  • 10 push ups, 10 legs raising (or sit ups), 10 squats, 10 burpees
  • 30 sec shadow boxing
  • 9 push ups, 9 legs raising, 9 squats, 9 burpees
  • 30 sec shadow boxing
  • 8 push ups, 8 legs raising, 8 squats, 8 burpees

And go down to 1 push ups, 1 legs raising, 1 squats, 1 burpees without any rest. Is means at the end you just did 5 min. shadow boxing, and 55 push ups, 55 legs raising,  55 squats and 55 burpees. Why is it beneficial? because you can keep the right movements pattern easier. If you do 5 min. shadow boxing, and after 55 each drills probably you’ll loose the movements before the end.
