I've been searching and reading a lot on different forums and it could be tiring sometime. I manage to pick up some new gears like Ringside IMF Tech Bag Gloves & Fairtex MMA Sparring Gloves. Now with those out of the way I'll be needing some Shin Guards. I barely started about two weeks now. I know for boxing gloves you should use bag gloves on bags and not during sparring. My question is are Pro-Style Shin Guards made for bag work also or is that more for Training Style Shin Guards? I won't be sparring anyone with these at the moment, but I wouldn't want the bulk that the Training Style Shin Guards come with. I know with that bulk comes with more protection, I'm willing to sacrifice a little protection for comfort. Thanks
Just kick the bag and kill those nerves now
i agree, just kick till it dont hurt anymore, then kick more. you can put some money into gloves, its definitely worth it. make sure to wrap your hands too.
As long as you don't have a bag that is like a rock, and a reasonable weight, your shins will be fine and better for it. Shin guards are more for sparring.
