    I'm a starting BJJ student, and want to start to add muay thai after the new year. Are there any things I can do at home to condition my shins and elbows, so I'm better prepared when I do start???

    Get a heavy bag & hit it alot!
    I was told you should kick the bag 100 times a day, on each leg to condition your shins & it worked. Also improved my cardio a great deal.
    I've never focused on my elbows or knees, but it's the same, just use them. . . alot!

    Don't roll them, or hit them & don't go kicking hard objects!!!

    It's a gradual process, you can't rush it, if you do you will only damage yourself.

    Sorry no magic formula, just patience & hard work.
