Traditional Muay Thai Shin Conditioning Drills

In the past, martial art students would attempt to strengthen the bones in their hands and legs by hitting hard objects. These videos focus on some traditional Muay Thai shin conditioning drills.

These types of traditional conditioning drills are controversial because some martial artists think that they are effective for strengthening your bones via microfractures which heal & make potential thicker bones. Other martial artists think this type of training is dangerous because it can potentially damage blood vessels, weaken the overall bone structure via major fractures, cause nerve damage, etc.

Do not try this at home because it is easy to break a bone if done incorrectly. If you are interested in this type of training, please discuss the pros and cons with your martial arts instructor.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized.

For additional stretches and exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Warm-Up Exercises, Stretching, Conditioning and Strength Training sections.
