I train my dominant hand.
Over time you will move the whole body in a connected movement and you will strike with less movement of the limb but the coordination of the body will impart movement through the limb connecting with the bag.
Where I teach in Chinatown I have a 70 pound bag in the corner.
It makes loud cracks when I drop my hand on it.
People think Im hitting the bag hard.
I am not.
Im dropping my hand on it.

Original title: "Bone Conditioning is BS"Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

Original title implied you were proving something. In fact you are asserting something and asking for disproof, which the new title reflects.

I see what you're saying. I thought Tom changed the thread to what he did to make it synonymous with "Prove the iron palm isn't BS" (addressing it to me by changing the title as he so often does when placing something in the idiot quarantine)
Also, I hit the edit post button instead of quote and originally typed this in your post instead of as a reply - that's where the edit stamp comes from.
Actually chose to simply put the assertion I was making in the thread title to hopefully emphasize the use of the scientific method in the thread: That an assertion is made and tested.
Before someone says, "Well you made a NEGATIVE assertion because you said it DOESN'T work and that's asking someone to PROVE A NEGATIVE, no, I didn't. The negative assumption fallacy is made in reply to criticism of an additive statement:
"I want to add Iron Palm/cancer cure x/unicorns to the body of knowledge"
"Show why it should be added"
"Show why it shouldn't" <-- the negative fallacy
Making you show why it should be added is NOT a negative just because when stated as a sentence it has the word "not" or "doesn't" in it.

So far, JC I haven't been able to find anything specifically on martial arts use of bone strengthening through microfractures, only some stuff on weightlifting and osteoporosis and some abstracts in Anatomical and Orthopaedic Medical Journals discussing Wolff's Law, the half-dozen challenges to it over the years and "...many contemporary investigators still ascribe to the idea..."

Depending on repetition and your definition of lightly it may be enough to create microfractyres. This article: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/freea...isnumber=11326 showed that as few as 8 standing high jumps could result in microfractures in the feet, whereas this article: http://fulltext.ausport.gov.au/fullt...wc/abs141a.htm said eleven jumps.
Take it as you will....
