    kick bag, kick pads. i cant feel my shins atall doing either of these.

    whatever you do, checking kicks will hurt.

    the rolling pin/bottle down the shins is meant for after fights to get rid of all the swelling on your shins not as a conditioning tool on its own.

    Hmm, thanks Tom.

    Although I use it as a conditioning tool and it has seemed to work, I will bare this in mind because I have never used it afterwards.

    Id stay away from using rolling pins etc... although everyone seems to be 50-50 on the subject. Personally its not for me

    Kicking a heavy bag is the only way to do it

    ive been training at master chanas in preston on/off for a couple of years now and i have never once seen or heard any of the pros use a rolling pin, bottle etc.. master chana just says keep kicking pads, heavy bags etc.. trust me some of the boys in that gym can fucking kick!

    I believe that it is more efficient to deaden or condition the skin by kicking pads and bags; thus thickening and callousing the skin, rather than damage the vessels under the skin and layering the shin bones, with a roller, which may detriment those susceptable to shin splints. Does that make sense?

    kicking heavy bags, lots of sparring best for me.
