Suggestion for using best equipment to get trained for combat sports
Training is the essential part of Muay Thai, and for that, you need the proper equipment. Here are some “must have” equipment required for all Muay Thai students:
While buying for training apparels, always aim for the comfort and durability rather than style. The shorts and tee shirts you buy must be light in weight and should be made of stretchable fabric so that you won’t feel weighed down while wearing them. Also, buy a compression spat that helps in maintaining the pressure of your body uniformly keeping your health intact.
For the safeguard of your head, mouth, legs and other parts of the body, you must buy a set of protective equipment for Muay Thai practice. To keep your head injuries at bay, buy a rubber foam headgear with air-vents. While the rubber foam material gives your maximum protection, the air-vents provides maximum air and keep your head calm during exercise.
Buy a body protector to cover your body during the battles. A double-layered foam body protector comes with an adjustable strap to provide maximum protection. Advance players can go for a Gel integrated belly pad that comes with maximum shock absorbing capacity.
Other protective gears on which you should invest are shin guards, Thai pads, groin cups and mouth guards.
Gloves and Wraps:
When it comes to gloves, go for a padded foam one. A foam-padded glove with leather coating serves best as compared to others. They can be used both inside your camp and in combat as well. Make sure; the whole glove comes with layered foam, especially the thumb.
To safeguard your wrists and hand muscles, you can add an extra layer of neoprene wrap for more active combats.
Punching bags and dummies:
When it comes to Muay Thai and other combat training, punching bags and dummies plays a significant role to maximize your strength and improve your overall skills during training.
High durable leather with a firm hanging chain makes it perfect kicking and punching. Advance students can go for the hydra core heavy bags that contains abundant water and foam layers to withstand intense hits.
A dummy is the best way to practice. The overall shape and height of a human being make a dummy ideal for practice. Exercising with a dummy makes it feel like practising on a live opponent.
These are the few to list. However, you can add some more those are advised by your mentors.
