    Hi everyone,

    I recently watched Sports Science at Discovery Channel and there was a Muay Thai fighter, Melchor Menor, who was able to break baseball bat with his kick. His kicking power was 258 kg if I'm not mistaken.

    This power requires a lot of hard work and a lot of kicks of course. Sometimes, it is even painful to kick heavy bag with our shins :)

    I was wondering for how long can a fighter keep this strength on his shin if he is not training for a while?

    I think this is one of those situations, like everything else in this world, where each person is different.

    are you kicking sand packs in a heavy bag or is it material filled

    I saw that episode a while back, he was kicking through the handle (very impressive) not the barrel
