what to do with blisters and bruises on my feet?

  1. Hi All, this is my first post ever on Sherdog. I've been reading a lot in the Nutrition area but I have a question about the bottom of my own feet.

    I just started doing Muy Thai Cardio fitness stuff, and I am doing 3-4 times a week. The balls of my feet are ripping up and I am getting tnos of blisters. Is there anything I can use to help me continue 3-4 without having to wait for the blisters to heal?

    Also, yesterday I wasnt able to kick the bags because my shins and feet were swelling. Outside of just kicking the bag more properly and icing at night, is there anything else i should be doing?

    thanks again!

    This is all part of the conditioning process, so you just need to work through it.

    To minimize the swelling, however, just use ice like you have been before and dump some rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol on the blisters to sear them up after every workout.
