Is conditioning your shins bad?
Injuries can include cuts, abrasions, skin infections, stress fractures, ligament and tendon injury and broken bones. The most concerning potential problem is applying this technique to the growing bones of very young children. Fortunately, children are very resilient but not indestructible.
How often should you condition your shins?
Try to kick a heavy bag at least 2 or 3 times a week for best results, and leave at least one day between sessions to allow for rest and recovery. This may seem a bit simple, but it’s the most widely used and effective way of conditioning your shins.
How do Muay Thai fighters not break their shins?
When a bone breaks, the body essentially repairs it by filling the break with calcium, which turns into bone. Muay Thai fighters do not break their bones, though. Instead, they cause micro-fractures that fill with calcium and become denser and stronger over time.
Does hitting your shins make them stronger?
Will rolling a wooden dowel or a heavy weight on my shins condition them to be stronger? No. The impact of striking and the vibration associated with impact is the stimulus your body requires to lay down a higher density bone material.
