    Was doing left high kicks on the bag and my shin split open and started bleeding :(


    Didn't hurt as much as it did when I first started though. Right leg is taking the beating like a champ :coold:

    No, more like a bruise that just split the surface a little bit. My whole shin is bruised up, but part of it broke the surface. it's pretty small and not painful. It was just kinda :ugh: when it happened.

    Not usually.

    I don't have enough time. But occasionally I will.

    between deadlifts and muay thai my shins are almost numb to the bone. I scraped them to the point where I had blood running down both my shins while deadlifting the other day. I didn't even notice they were cut.

    dang, i want my shins like that. soccer helped a lot, but havent played a good amount of years, now a kick to the shin makes me squirm like a girl. i want to be able to break baseball bats with my shin, that would be badass

    fuck idk, deadlifting for a few years means scraping a sharp file across the shins, and then I just kick corn filled thai bags. It used to hurt deep in my shins but now i just feel like a tingling.

    Even with all the bruising, it's not very painful. It's my ankles and my hip flexors that really hurt from putting on so much weight and practicing Knees.

    I didn't realize that my ankles would need so much conditioning...it seems to be my weak point :(

    happens to all the bigger mofos. y'all grow too fast for your ligaments and joints to keep up with. mr bruce focused mostly on all trunk, joint, ligament strength, and speed.

    thats weird... ive never had my shins bleed before, although when i started they did get purple alot... now theyre pretty tough and i never really feel anything unless i hit someone elses shin directly :dunno: shin conditioning is fun.

    this was from my first month in muay thai... after 300 kicks each leg to the heavy bag... i eventualy ended up fracturing it... but after that its been all shins and all good... was just a matter of unlearning my bad habits from the jap martial arts.
