Effective way to harden shins?

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

What your looking to accomplish is building what is kown as trebeculi in your bones. think of it as webbing that can be formed by beating the area repeatedly....it can be strengthend but it takes a long time......

your idea...sounds kinda dumb....why not just bare against a heavy bag????

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.

monoxide has a little shameless behaviour in the past
What your looking to do is to condition your shins right, the best way ive found that effectively conditions shins is to take a wooden stick and continually smashing it on your shins, the bottle method works too but id rather condition it the painfull way rather than the easy way, the easy way dosent always prove to be 100% effective

Kick the banana bag as much as you can, im assuming your dojo has one right, the tall skinny heavybag that hurts your shins a little when you kickit? use linament when u have too. and do drills lightly like we used to take turns throwing kicks at each other, back and forth checking all the low kicks and over time it gets more intense, but kills at first. Ive had friend who play drums on there shins etc etc. Didnt help them much. Jump rope, helps build your muscle up around the shinbone

Well I plan on using a heavy bag soon, but I was just looking for a substitute until I have one available. I was thinking using that using shin guards against a tree(with the hard part removed, leaving a somewhat thick cushion) would be similar to kicking a slightly cushioned heavy bag.

Also, I've read that using the bottle method/other similar methods only deadens nerves, but doesn't actual strengthen shins. I'm looking for ways to actually strengthen my shins, not just to remove pain from them.

You cant make your shinbone stronger you can just make the muscles around it better , work your calves, jump rope, jump alot of rope
