Like others have said, Muay Thai is not a good chioce of martial art if your aim is to get big. Look at Muay Thai fighters, yes, they are in amazing shape, but they are not big. Being big is actually not good thing for Muay Thai, again look at the body type of the top fighters out there. But if you're looking for something fun, and getting big isn't your main goal, then I would choose Muay Thai over cardio any day of the week.

Yeah, Muay Thai. It'll be way easier to stay motivated to train, especially if your alternative is to run twice a week. Won't make you big, but it will make you tough. Start rolling those shins!

You need to do MT at least twice a week to progress properly. If you're too sore to do 2 days MT and 2 days weights at first, don't worry. Your body will adjust. When you start any martial art from scratch, your body will need to get used to doing stuff it's never done.

When I'm not injured (which is not right now :evil: ) I try to train 4 days a week at the kickboxing gym and 2 days doing other stuff, like running, bodyweight exercises and some free weights. I'm not trying to get big though. I'm trying to keep my weight where it is.

Hmm, that's a conundrum.
My aim is to get big, as I am scrawny now. I've been gaining healthy weight for the past 2 months and weights would help me get big guns, haha.
I don't expect MT to make me big, but as more of cardio and a skill for me. I don't aim to fight anyone, except if I'm mugged. :p But is this going to disturb my goal of becoming big? That would be a bummer.
Right now I'm proposing Mon n Thu=MT and Tue n Fri=Weights.
