My gym used to have me take a wooden rolling pin and go up down the shin to condition it and kill the nerves.

Terrible idea and idk what kind of gym would make you do this. This theory has been proven over and over to be more detrimental than anything.




What a stud

Couldn't you just kick on a bag a lot wearing shin guards, then go to lighter shin guards, then no shin guards?

Nothing other than kicking a punching bag. You can cause serious nerve damage.

Yep... That would be the tempered (and wisest) approach to conditioning your shins.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

Kick bags, or kick shins kinda easy with a partner, but hard enough that it hurts a little. Over time you'll get more used to it.

suck it up and keep kicking the heavy bag. if it bothers you that much it may be worth investing in a water filled bag. don't bother using shin guards or your shins will never toughen up. i'd avoid messing with rolling pins and the such on your shins, just kick the crap out of the bag.

I beat my shins with a broom stick and kick the lower portion of my heavy bag.

wear guards if you're sparring - it will protect you and your training partner. otherwise, DON'T KICK SOMEONE'S SHINS!

jk/lmao

... and yes, a canvas bag is rough enough to be abrasive on your skin so maybe wear long socks and pull them up so your bare skin isn't contacting the bag and irritating your shins. all kidding aside, i had the same issues when i started training about 5 months ago but i was at a hardcore muay thai camp and they said just keep kicking the bag and after a while your shins will get used to it. now i can blast kicks into a heavybag as long as my cardio hold up, although i still prefer not kicking a canvas bag.
