Four important key-elements for Muay Thai (in no particular order):

  1. Explosivity

  2. Cardio

  3. Flexibility

  4. Technique



    1] Explosivity

    Start with bodyweight exercises for endurance strength:

    You can get really far with just Push-ups, Pull-ups and Squats.

    Start building up your endurance, then after you can do a lot, switch over to doing them explosively.
    Get a pull-up bar for in your house if you can, even those that you hinge in the door works.

    For Muay Thai it's not really productive to lift heavy, it can even slow you down.
    (I used to be a powerlifter prior so I also speak from experience)


    2] Cardio

    For conditioning I recommend sprinting as opposed to running. Instead of running long distance(say 10 miles), do it a shorter distance(5 miles), but more explosive/faster. Look up HIIT.

    Constantly think in terms of explosive training, don't underestimate cardio, it's very important!


    3] Flexibility

    Flexible hips and legs is a godsend.
    I recommend either one of these books:

  5. Stretching Scientifically (You can't go wrong with this book, Legendary Flexibility builds upon this book) (
  6. Legendary Flexibility from Jujimufu the Trickster
    (I prefer this book personally because it's more fun to read and easier to apply in your life) (
  7. If you have no time to read books, PM me and i'll give you my stretch routine.


    4] Technique

    This one speaks for itself, you learn technique by practicing lessons and sparring. Since you will be starting Muay Thai in 3 months I would recommend you to do some shadowboxing prior to you starting. Watch this video for Muay Thai basics and start learning the basics at your home.



    Do bodyweight Push-ups,

    Pull-ups, Squats.

    Do sprinting/running.

    Do stretch.

    Do shadowboxing.

I've bought their 16oz. Challenger 2.0 gloves and a mouthpiece from them. I got the gloves for sub-$50 and I thought that for the price, they did the job well:

It is synthetic leather (although I believe the 3.0's should be actual leather, not 100% sure on that), but the material was able to hold its own quite well. Never had any issues with any of the stitching or velcro coming apart.

That being said, you can certainly find quality, genuine leather gloves from the more established Muay Thai brands such as Fairtex, Twins Special, and Top King (amazon links below) for fairly competitive prices (sub-$100). I would honestly go for one of those, unless you feel compelled to buy from Venum.

This book is really a necessity for a serious martial artist who is trying to improve his or her flexibility. It's a bit old now but to this day I have not found a stretching guide that directly tackles the type of flexibility a martial artist needs like this one.

I do Muay Thai now but formally black belt in Taekwondo. My dad started training with me at the age of 37. His flexibility was horrendous. He couldn't kick above his waist. After reading this book he was kicking to the head within a year.

Now I'm in my 30's and having been a few years out of martial arts I am in the same boat as my dad was. Borrowed this book from him. Honestly the difference was instant. I was kicking a foot higher right away just by doing the dynamic stretches before going to training. 6 months on and I'm kicking head height again.

The secret is dynamic stretching!

I had this edition of the book.

I can sincerely attest to the quality and value of these boxing gloves .

I’ve used these shin guards a couple of times and they’re fine.

As for hand wraps, I bought them at my gym, as the ones I’d bought were not long enough (140). Make sure your hand wraps are long enough and you’ll be fine.

u/sharked · 1 pointr/MuayThai

yes. I was like you too and I was kicking people in the ear hole after about 2 months. Common knowledge about stretching is filled with misinformation. This book changed my understanding of flexibility.

Stretching Scientifically: A Guide to Flexibility Training

despite the homoerotic cover, it's a great book. look up the author Thomas Kurz online. He has a few free articles.

u/wakeytom · 1 pointr/MuayThai

Late on this but to be honest I wouldn't go with the sports direct ones. Hopefully your budget stretches to these which I like: also I am sure some will disagree but for cheap shins I think as a beginner cotton work well and I used these for my first year and still do now at times

u/Iisterine · 4 pointsr/MuayThai

i was super skeptical with this purchase, but decided for the price i bought my new gloves vs the price of this, it was worth a shot.


Totally worth the investment, I've been using this for the last 3-4 months and the freshness of both the gloves and the deodorizer is still there. I literally just leave the deodorizer in the glove after training and it absorbs the sweat / leaves a VERY nice smell in my gloves.

Hello, fellow thicc boi here.

I have pretty big calves from years of swimming and water polo.



I ordered these a year ago and they are awesome. They have a sleeve so they never twist if someone kicks them and theres plenty of straps. I don't really use the top strap sometimes.


They're super affordable and hold up well. Also I've thrown them in my washing machine and nothings happened to them

u/Jared_from_SUBWAY · 3 pointsr/MuayThai
  • Apple or banana (for potassium. Coconut Water is nice too.)
  • Some almonds, cashews, or walnuts (protein, energy)
  • Some quick cooking oats RAW (if more than 30min before training)
  • A spoon of raw honey (energy)
  • Spoon of coconut oil (energy)
  • "Amazing Grass" (Good way to start day, and it forces me to wash it down with a ton of water.)

    I don't eat everything on this list. It depends on my time, or how I'm feeling; but I tend to mix it up, and stick to things that are easily digestible and can be utilized efficiently.

    Other than that, I personally don't like eating "meals" before workouts or training. That's why everything I eat tends to be light, simple, and serves a purpose for the workout. AFTER the workout/training, then it's time for MEAT!

    Edit Wording.

Glove Freshener

My friends highly recommend these instead of disinfectant spray, worth a try.

u/blueblob11 · 3 pointsr/MuayThai

It's called liniment (I have never used it and think it's like Tiger Balm or Bengay) and it's an oil or balm to help with muscle soreness.

His book is interesting:

I've checked out the Muay Sangha website and it looks like we went very deep into spirituality and tried to combine it with Muay Thai and Muay Boran.

u/dejitaru · 3 pointsr/MuayThai

I use the hayabusa mesh bag. Holds two pairs of gloves shin guards and headgear with room for more. More importantly it let's stuff air out. Very durable mesh as well.

u/chailol · 2 pointsr/MuayThai

I bought the same gloves four months ago expecting it to be brown, when I got it they were more yellowish than brown.
Bought from Amazon.
Here is an album that I just took of my gloves, please compare with what you have. These are my first pair of gloves I don't have a clue if they're genuine or not.

Edit: added pictures of my gloves

Fairtex Thai Pads -Amazon

I’ve used a number of Thai pads and these are the best I’ve used. Lightweight but tough enough to stand up to holding kicks for one of my guys who’s a 210lb fighter

u/Olivares_ · 3 pointsr/MuayThai

Anyone use a glove deodorizer?

I know newspaper should work well stuffed inside too.

As for wiping down the outside of gear, baby wipes?

u/dunksoverstarbucks · 1 pointr/MuayThai

I use a mesh ball bag it holds everything I have two pairs of gloves. Shin pads Thai pads punch mits

Rudmox Pro-Traveller Heavy Duty Mesh Ball Bag
I got the black xla one and it’s huge

u/jonnyhaldane · 1 pointr/MuayThai

I have some No Stink pads that are designed to absorb moisture from your gloves after you used them. Seems to be working so far.

u/chriswu · 1 pointr/MuayThai

I bought this book recently to supplement my training (I'm relatively new). I found it extremely informative. Goes through all the basic stances, kicks, knees, punches, elbows, etc. I'm not all the way through, so there is probably more. There is also a very interesting history section as well as a "fighter's training regimen" that I've heard is brutal. You probably won't need that tho, with your military training. Check it out!

u/TXDRMST · 4 pointsr/MuayThai

I've heard THIS STUFF is the "real deal", but I just use Tiger Balm on the rare occasion I feel sore enough where I can't tough through it. After my first few classes though, I basically bathed in it.

u/NoBudgetBallin · 1 pointr/MuayThai

I wipe down the inside with disinfectant after every session. I then stuff these things inside of them until the next session. Preventative maintenance is the only way to go. People will say there's various tricks, but once the stink is in the gloves you're not going to get it out.
