Our coach seems to love all forms of press-ups especially Push-clap or push and slapping your thighs (or even clapping behing your back!) and he mixes them up with normal,narrow,wide and offset grip press ups the push-clap e.t.c are especially good as they help build trully explosive punching power, For your legs he always has us doing jumping rotational squats which involve jumping from the squat position and rotating 180 degrees into another squat and so on and so on, this agin helps with your explosive cardio and power, he also for some reason has us doing a rediculous amount of burpees for the same reasons - i think

I'd say, get a wooden post or a sturdy bed post, and shinkick the hell outta it...
Also, Muay Thai uses the core muscles alot, so crunches, and diagnal crunches especially, are very useful. Also do lateral crunches to compliment it... (lay on your stomach and do a backwards sort of crunch, raising your head and upper body back as far as you can.)
If my instructions aren't too clear, sorry, I'm bad at explaining things

That is incredibly stupid advice. Do NOT do that. Kicking pads or heavy bags is plenty.

Agree with MattJ, that's just stupid. You do that, you might as well amputate your leg and use it as weapon.

How the HELL did this thai boxers kick trees with their shins crap get started? It's been around for years and I am sooo tired of hearing about it. Modern methods are indeed just thai pads and bag work. GRARRRR and stuff!

One guy that I know that used to kickbox broke his shin during a fight; went shin to shin with a guy and he didn't win. He told me to use a glass bottle and roll it up and down my shins. Start out applying just a little pressure, just to the point of hurting that I can tolerate. He said to do this often. Has anyone heard of this strategy for hardening your shins? He did screw up his shin, so I'm wondering if this is sound advice.

http://www.singto.co.uk/Myths/Myths.htm

I have taken these from the link above incase some of you have problems getting it to work, I hope this is relevant


Myth -Thai Boxers deaden the nerves in their shins by rolling a glass bottle up and down on their legs.
Fact - this is completely false and should not be practiced by anyone. The so called deadening of the nerves (or worse removing of the nerves) is simply not true. Nak Muay spend hundreds of hours doing repetitive kicks on heavy bags, pads and nearly as many hours sparring with a partner. This repetitive training familarise the boxer with pain, and raises their pain threshold in any one particular area (i.e. the shin). This in turn may give a sense that the nerves are deadened, they are not, they are simply a little dormant. Stay away from training for a long period of time, and see how your pain threshold will have dropped when you next clash shins.



Myth - Thai Boxers harden their shins by bashing their shins with a rolling pin.

Fact - this is completely false and should not be practiced by anyone. Although shins seem hard, they are living tissue and will give a little under impact. However rolling pins are very solid and give very little in way of leeway, so continuously hitting your shins with a rolling pin will cause them to become traumatised, resulting in possible non reservable damage such as cancer.



Myth - Thai Boxing can give you cancer of the shin.
Fact - this is completely false and although the continued improper bruising and damaging of the shin may in the long term cause cancer (see above), correct training methods and proper conditioning will reduce or eliminate this myth completely.

One thing that we can not be certain of is the future of one's body, as there are far to many possibilities, such as contagious and hereditary diseases, however we can reduce the risk of any additional un-reversable damage to the body by training safely!
