Then you move on to leg kicks to outside and inside of legs, then liver and spleen shots, then high rib shots, then head kicks while blocking, and after is body shot punching..

Also, the best I have found for shin conditioning at home is a beer bottle taped up with athletic tape so that is doesn't break, and rolling up and down and then tapping up and down.
Oh, dude, I am so bringing that drill to my class. That's awesome!

Does the shin conditioning with the beer bottle work better if it's freshly drunk?

Beer bottle works by deadening the nerves on your shins. However it DOES NOT harden your shins. To harden your shins PLEASE PLEASE do not roll bottles on your them, instead kick heavy bags. Lots and lots of heavy bags.

Look up Wolf's Law.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

You're right Dustin, wasn't suggesting that anyone forgo bag work. I'm familiar with Wolf's Law, or the concept anyway, I wasn't aware that that process was named for someone. Learned something new. But yeah, just deadening nerves and doing nothing to strengthen the bone will lead you to a breaking stuff on the wrong side of your skin.

I think a little extra work on the shins with a (safe) object isn't terrible, though, as long as you're doing plenty of bag and pad work. With all respect to Jeff (I'm serious about stealing that drill), I'd personally never do it with something breakable like a bottle. Although, as he'd said, it's taped up so if it does crack, it should stick together. Still, I'll stick to using rods.

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

My Kru had a small wooden rod he carried around and would random tap us on our shins every now and then during training. I hated when he would sneak up on us..

Re: Seen at the globo yesterday

As I walk into the free weight area today I see a crowd gathered around one of the smith machines and wonder what sort of shenanigans I might be about to witness. As I get closer I see there is a preacher curl bench dragged into the thing and 3 plates loaded on the bar. I am curious because I know even with the reverse grip clean form that these cats use none of these guys can curl that much even with the other two "spotting" them. I go on about my business and as I load the bar for my deadlifts the morning peace of the gym is shattered by the biggest of the three screaming like he just learned why you shouldn't drop the soap while he was doing what they were calling "Box Squats" to the seat of the bench. The seat of the bench wouldn't be parrallel to me and I am 6'2" he was about 5'9" I understand the concept of high box squats but these weren't even that they were just touch and go on the smith machine.

It is one of my favs! Enjoy. And, I've used the same one for like 2 years, but any excuse to treat yourself to a fresh beer.

Believe me there is lots of heavy bag training involved as well. I realize that a beer bottle can't replace bag or pad work. It makes me feel like I am doing something productive while vegging out after training.

Yeah, that's exactly what I do, only with sticks (thick dowel rod, broomstick, bit of pvc).

I'm reasonable sure that Rippetoe expect a reasonable amount of effort, whereas this fine fellow exerted himself not one iota.
