I'm new to Muay Thai, and I'm wondering if this would be an effective way to harden my shins:
Since I don't have a boxing bag (yet), and I don't believe in using coke bottles (rolling and tapping) to harden my shins, I thought about taking shin guards that I used to use in soccer, put them on my shins, and then kick trees to harden my shins. Pros? Cons? Flat-out stupid? lol
Why would you use guards, wouldn't that defeat the purpose, just get a towel wet and keep slapping your shins, that will deaden the nerves.
