    I just started Muay Thai last night. It is only twice a week. I have access to a punching bag. Do you guys know any good conditioning and bag routines I can do?

    Thanks.

    you can make routines up, 2 rounds of punches, 2 rounds of kicks, then 2 rounds of combinations. THrow a kick for every 5 punches thrown possibilities are endless.

    Hummm intresting no one asked what kind of bag you would be using.

    Is it a Sand Bag? Water Bag?

    Like others said, do rounds. Start with say 5 3 minute rounds then try to work up to 5 6 minute rounds.

    Thanks guys. Not sure of the bags at my kickboxing "gym" [2x a week at a leisure centre] but the ones at my health club are stuffed with fabric.

    Ok, be sure you don't overtrain on Sand bags because you can really f' up your knuckles (I have a very bad pinky knuckle).

    Not from a bag, but too much stress on your hands from the impact of a sand bag can hurt you in the long run.

    3 minute rounds of nothing but very fast roundhouse kicks. Switch sides every 10 kicks. Followed by a round of nothing but hard kicks i can do about 20 on each leg switching every 10 for 1 round.
