But the only place I have currently to hang a bag is outside, I wouldn't wanna hit it and some squishy green **** come squirting out the seams after a week or two, lol.

    A good tactic to keep mildew out is to throw in a cup of baking soda or baking powder every few inches. Either that or a general dry disinfectant.

    I never leave mine out for more than a day, leaving a grain outside in cold weather is never a good idea.

    Would a normal heavy bag be alright for conditioning your shins?

    I've got to tell you, i'm doing the rolling pin method, and, well, it works, yeah, but i would enjoy the process alot more if i was actually kicking something...

    I wouldn't think, haha

    I just got a bigass 100lb or so sandfilled bag I've had for a while. And due to lack of anywhere else to put it. I had it chillin outside. Usually keep some sort of roof over it but it still gets pretty weathered. I'm startin Muay Thai in a month or so, And I'm definatley gonna need a new bag. It's fucked up enough from just punching it for prolonged periods of time.
    I can only imagine what those shin kicks, and knees would do.

    And to what Moose said. I'm pretty sure alotta other people covered it. And I cant say that Im the best source of info on kicking, Being that Im only boxing and ****. But if you got a big enough bag I'm sure it would be mean enough on the shins to condition them pretty well. Like I said I'm just punching. But the bag i got is pretty fuckin heavy. And if yours is anything similar I would assume it'll work fine.

    I would honestly suggest just start kicking the **** outta it and see how it works out, lol. If you do it long enough its bound to have some effects, right? :icon_tong

    Man, i tried that, but i only got one kick before my girlfriend got mad at me...

    "I'm sorry, babe, i just need to condition my shins, for kicks and blocks and stuff...you don't want me fighting and getting hurt, do you?"

    "THAT FUCKING HURTS YOU ASS HOLE, WHY THE **** WOULD YOU DO THAT?"

    "you know, your really selfish sometimes..."

    I used to have heavy bag i got from a friend who trained in MT and worked construction. It was filled with cloth & leather scraps, brick powder, and cracker dust. The inside of the bag was lined with a couple of bin liners. no dust or anything else ever leaked out of it.

    It was a hard bastard, but workable. The bottom section was rock hard, but the way it was hanging, waist height and above kicks were ok.

    So, forgive my ignorance, but does the rolling pin on the shins actually toughen up the bone, or does it just deaden the nerves?

    rolling it deadens the nerves.

    whacking it toughens the bone.

    (as i was told)

    What I was told was that abrading the surface of your shin with a solid object (i.e. rolling pin, glass bottle, etc) if done with sufficient pressure, causes micro fractions in the bone, which, as they heal, become more dense, and increase their calcium content. The rolling is primarily a good way to remove bumps, clots, and bruises, but it can also be used as a conditioning tool.

    The Thai guys I know rub liniment (which contains Methyl Salicylate to their shins prior to kicking the bag or other shin conditioning, to promote blood flow to the area.

    Apparently Dit Da Jow (sp?) used in iron palm conditioning works very well for this too.
