Shin conditioning
Among the many typical training systems adopted by Muay Thai practitioners, shin conditioning has always been one of the most spectacular, especially for the newcomers. In the past, shins were hardened by hitting banana trees, in motherland Thailand, since those trees have a soft surface and are perfect targets for a thai boxer kicks. Nowadays Muay fighters use a common heavy bag, weighting between 50 and 60 kilos, to harden properly their shins.
A regular practice of heavy bag shin kicking is required to obtain steel hard bones, even after a relatively short time, giving thai boxer an extremely powerful weapon, useful both for attacking and for blocking the opponent’s attacks.
