Stronger, Healthier Shins
Runners often have such tight shins and lower legs due to the constant flexion at the ankle joint. Toe Flicks to the rescue! Every so often as you push your foot off the ground, concentrate on flicking toes back to stretch out the front of the leg and keep blood flow to the joint. Not only will it help prevent shin splints, but it will leave your legs feeling better after long runs.
