6 ways to condition the tibie.

Conditioning your tibie if you want to kick is something you don’t have to underestimate and need to do.

It becomes even more so if you kick and even without protections.

If you do combat sports you’ve definitely seen methods on how to kick metal poles or with the rolling pin beat on your blood shins, but before you destroy your shins, consider other options when it comes to conditioning your shins.

My goal here today is to keep you in the real world.

I know you want tough tibie like steel so you can kick baseball bats after a couple of days of alignment, but that just won’t happen.

Condition the tibie in Muay Thai and the methods I want to point out to you are nothing special or super hard core, but they are definitely the best and most effective ways to turn your tibie into sharp weapons ready to kick with power but if you want to try and try to knock down a redwood tree you can try but keep your friend close to take you to the emergency room.

 

Now one thing you need to start from is the first tip of the 6:

1. You have to be patient, persistent, resilient, resilient.

Is this my advice for a conditioned tibia?. Yes

You don’t have to be in a hurry, but you have to be so constancy.

Believe it or not, there is no magic potion that will help you develop hard and durable shins.

There is no way to avoid the inevitable pain that comes from colliding your tibia on your opponent’s tibia or on his elbow during intense sparring sessions.

Don’t think you’ll just have to train in this to have shins like Buakaw even after a workout constantly for more than a year.

I’m sorry to point out, but your tibias if you want to do this will hurt you for a while and you have to get used to this condition.

In order to get steel tibia you have to spend a lot of time going to do targeted workouts and specific training.

But… YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE IN A HURRY!!!

You have to develop a calm, patient, persistent and resistant mentality because this is the key to knowingly treating the initial pain and discomfort that you will inevitably feel when you start kicking.

Now that you understand that you need not be in a hurry let’s see what you need to do and what equipment you need to use to sharpen your tibias but now let’s start with the physical part.

 

2. Kick the heavy bag … A lot!!! In fact, very !!!

Heavy sack is your number one tool when it comes to tempering your tibie.

Hitting the heavy bag is one of the basic training methods for kicks and a heavy bag is crucial to sharpen your tibie and condition them.

It takes time and a crazy amount of kicks to calcify and harden the tibias, but in the end it will be worth it when you are able to provide kicks and feel your opponent’s stiff body breaking under the power of your kicks.

Not to mention that with the heavy bag will also be useful to improve your technique and at the same time the conditioning of the tibias, two in one, a good compromise and that is also why the sack remains a fundamental tool.

Even if you are an experienced fighter, heavy bag training is still and remains super important and should never be overlooked.

What training to do?

If you are starting your training in Muay Thai, use a heavy bag and do at least 100 kicks per leg during each training session and this should be a mandatory part in your routine, but if you want to make 200 and you feel it!.

But don’t overdo it the first few times, listen.

After you’ve done the set of kicks, your shins will hurt you, they’ll probably burn, that’s a good thing!

With time the nerves above the tibia begin to cushion the pain and it will no longer be so unbearable.

If you do this workout constantly after a few months you will no longer feel this feeling of pain.

In addition, heavy bag blows create micro-fractures in the tibias that rebuild on yourself strengthen your tibia that becomes stronger, harder and stronger than before.

If you already feel like you’re with conditioned tibias and want to train again, add more density to your heavy bag,then add more garments, rags, or chopped harder materials inside the bag.

3. Do a lot of Sparring, VERY because that’s where you learn !!!

Muay Thai sparring is the best way to condition your tibie and test them in a ring with a face-to-face training partner.

Sparring is (or must be) an important part of your training, especially if you really want to learn how to make your martial art effective regardless of whether or not you plan to get in the ring and fight.

Contrary to what you think there are different types of sparring that work on different areas of your training and you don’t always need to do hard sparring because although you need it could affect your preparation and consequently limit your ability to train effectively daily.

Now there are two types of sparring in particular that you need to do when you decide to try to improve the conditioning of your tibia.

a) Sparring, with protections

If you’ve already done sparring you know that even with a controlled kick if your kick is parried with tibia or stuck with an elbow, you know that it also hurts with thick and quality para-tibia.

Unfortunately, there is no way to avoid this pain than to do and do over and over again until the tibias get used to this feeling.

Even after doing it numerous times anyway it hurts, but not so much.

In addition to doing free sparring where with your workout partner, without any predefined combination, you hit, which is also a smart training idea to test some of your combinations and strategies.

Do it with multiple different training partners and with different physical and technical characteristics.

Pulling combinations in training that then involve controlling leg kicks or blocking low and medium and high kicks will help not only condition your tibie, but help you build timing (your timing), distance yourself and work on your technique and the right angles of impact which is not negligible.

 

b) Sparring without full protections

What??, I have to do sparring without equipment, not even gloves?

Yes, that’s right!

Now, I don’t mean that you have to hit yourself with power without protections, what I want you to do is to play around the gym with your training partner in a calm way, open hand in support, technical, so you can work on your combinations, distance, clinch, projections, etc. without worrying about the pain that also comes from a controlled kick.

This type of sparring is very used in Thailand and you will see doing this even when I am not in the gym.

Take a look at some technical sparring you see in Thailand.

Although in some videos they use “para tibie” protections, but it is usually done without but in a very very smart way.

Ps. This is to make it clear that if the Thai pros also do this kind of training it definitely serves you too, so it is not always necessary to develop certain skills of “reading” of your opponent hit hard, because often in that chaos you do not understand anything and do not bring home a real added value.

 

4. Take care of your tibias!

After working on the conditioning of your tibias and you are limping because of the pain do not assume that they heal themselves.

It’s clear that in the end they heal even if you don’t do anything but since you still have to train if you want to speed up the healing process so you can start kicking again (and in return harden your tibia more and more) then you have to try to study and learn the methods of healing and treatment of your tibias.

It happens to everyone during training to have such a severe pain in the tibia that prevents you from kicking, this clearly bothers you because it limits your chances of kicking, limits your chances of training, so it is essential to recover as fast as possible.

This is not only about tibias but also all parts of your body that practicing martial arts is normal that they are painful and sore so it is important that you know and learn methods to recover as fast as possible.

In Thailand there are real specialists for the care of tibias and pains related to this art.

This is also part of conditioning your tibie

 

5. Weight and tool training.

In order to support your tibies your legs must be stronger and stronger, your bones need to become stronger as your muscle structure.

Implementing weightlifting exercises such as squats, heavy lunges, box jumps, and step-ups, etc. is a great way to help not only with bone density, but also to increase your strength, your explosiveness, and your overall balance.

There have also been a number of research studies conducted by American universities that claim that weightlifting helps increase bone density.

Although the results are not conclusive to 100, these case studies suggest that you should also do some weight training to increase bone stamina!

 

6. Nutrition, increases doses of calcium and vitamin D

Grandma always told you to drink bone-good milk?

Don’t doubt what Grandma told you.

Grandma’s always right!

Every day your body is removing the old, crispy bones to replace it with new, sexy ones.

Since bones are constantly developing every day of your life, it is essential to have good growth that you provide the right kind of nutrients to aid their development.

Calcium is one of the key nutrients needed, but you also have to give it the bricklayer which is vitamin D,otherwise the body will not be able to absorb the calcium it needs!

As long as you eat a healthy and balanced diet, you’re consuming a fair dose of calcium and vitamin D but to help develop your bones I recommend you use some supplements in the mix because it might be a good idea if you feel like you haven’t had enough nutrition of that type from your diet.

Be sure to take 1000 mg of calcium per day!

To condition the tibie you also need to properly feed your body and bones.

 

Conclusions

Now you have some method to condition your tibie and advice on how to improve endurance and ability to hit with tibia, but if you have your own method or some other advice write it in the comments.

Temper your shins to the point where you don’t feel any pain take the time you need and work hard but without hurry.

If you do sparring work, you kick heavy sacks, and using the other tibia conditioning methods I’ve told you about definitely greatly increases the resilience of your tibias.

Remember that there really isn’t a secret formula for getting tibias like Buakaw but if you follow the methods you’ve tried before you’ll gradually be able to improve pain tolerance and get harder, sharper tibias to kick.

You have to be consistent, every day, persistent and it will only be a matter of time until your opponents and training partners will tremble when they feel your kicks on the body!

Stay Tuned!

A brief interlude on self-defense

The parades used in personal defense are not those used in sports and are designed to create damage to the aggressor’s “weapons”.

These are not passive saves but active parades.

Also having shoes you have the opportunity to have a set of parades studied related to the fact that you are not barefoot.

Look at these pictures, and the inner knee parade, this is one of the parades that are explained in the Jeet Kune Do.

Ps. Although there is a technical error in the execution of football that caused what happened, Anderson Silva is a veteran of the ring and the octagon, so it makes no sense to judge what happened so because there can be many causes and trajectories and a perfect active parade with the knee as it happened that can cause such a nightmare accident. Meanwhile, it’s been a long time since U.F.C. 168 and Anderson Silva who is a great champion is back to fighting.
