      Bone Conditioning

      Just wondering if anyone else did this? I'm guessing Ninja, or other martial artists on the board should know about this. I'm just wonder what good exercises are as I've only been able to find limited information online thus far.

      So far I've found that tapping a stick and rubbing it on your shins is good. But what about other parts of the body?

      Well... Take these to your own extent, but here is what I used to do.

      To increase bone density, take calcium. That alone will help, but is extremely useful if you are conditioning the bones.

      For harder knuckles and deadened nerves on your hands, punch a board. Alternately, a sturdy part of a wall. Be careful with this, if you cut up your hands, you won't be able to punch again for a while... Get a smooth board of decent thickness and density. Breaking a board won't do much for conditioning.

      A decent stick will go a long way. Strike the forearms and shins to condition nerves and bone.
      Bollocks.

      The bone.


      Clench your fist. From your elbow to your hand there should be one bone. Hit that one. A lot.

      I'm guessing the outside...the inside forearm has a vein running along the bone

      A few inches thickness worth of newspaper packed against the wall would be
      ideal for punching if you're aiming to condition your fists.

      I've given more attention to the crown of my head and my neck, however, so
      my knowledge of conditioning the other parts of the body is still rather
      limited. Whacking your forearms against tree trunks will certainly harden
      them, but it puts you at risk for things like blood clots. If it's just bone your
      after, a firm but lighty padded surface, again, would be the way to go. You
      can put tremendous loads onto the bone without worrying about your skin
      breaking that way.

      And please, stay away from hard sticks. You want to shock the bone enough
      to allow for denser calcium deposites, not give it micro-fractures.

      I'm using a stick with a rubber end on it. I tap it lightly on my shins and rub it on shins. I'm doing the same on my forearms now. I want to start light with my knuckles, I've seen people tie rope around poles and punch that...I was thinking of doing the same except cushioning it with an extra padding or something. And work my way to the rope

      I bang my arms together every once in a while. I think the best conditioning is simply just sparring. I used to do a lot of conditioning of my shins and if I just spar, I find that my shins stay as hard as they already are. The only time I ever really had to condition my shins was before I did a baseball bat break, and I don't think it helped all that much.
