Warm Up Exercises Before Training:
Just similar to any type of workout, lack of proper warm up and stretching exercises put bad impacts on body which may experience during or after workout. It will be best to perform short running or skipping rope or even simple jumping jacks. Keep warming up your body for up to 10 to 15 minutes.
After you completely warm up your body, then it’s time to stand in front of a large mirror and try shadow boxing. Shadow boxing is such a skill that everyone must try out to improve his or her Muay Thai techniques. This will improve your timing, footwork, techniques and other combinations. Practicing in front of a large mirror will help you imagining your opponent standing in front of you. In this way, you can better observe your punches and kicks. While practicing in front of a mirror, you can clear notice snapping your punches back or even analyze if your opposite arm is protecting up your chin.
Punching a heavy bag is a significant thing while practicing at home. Bag work is extremely important if you need to see good results in your home. You can use bag training to learn all different Muay Thai techniques while focusing on your punches, knees, kicks and elbows. Punching a bag when it’s moving back and forth, will help you in learning your movements with perfect coordination and timing.
Trying to grab an idea of a particular technique will help your mind to focus on something while training. It will be good to fix time when punching the bag as hitting the bag for 3 minutes round will simulate the length of your fight. Give your best in 3 minutes and then take rest for a minute.
