Trainer Tip of the Day

29 March 2021

Trainer tip of the day: shin splints are a common ailment in any activity involving repeated pounding such as running, multi-impact aerobics, basketball & jumping rope. A great stretch for the shins is to lie on your back, holding right leg up, hands behind thigh. Flex foot, pushing heel to ceiling and keeping foot flexed, turn the ankle side-to-side so your foot looks like a windshield wiper. Repeat with left leg. For prevention: avoid running on pitched surfaces and increase your mileage or intensity by no more than 10 percent/week.
