3-Minute Stretching Routine for Shin Splints
Leave a Comment
Back to the Video
These stretches are wonderful! I really needed the shin stretch for some reason today! Thank you!
NICE STRETCH. I ENJOYED IT!
I felt that so I pushed even harder.
I really enjoy all the articles and vids on spark people. They are full of knowledge and helpful hints. What first attracted me to the site was tracking calories and nutrition. I was referred by a friend and I'm sure glad she told me about it!
Thanks, Nicole! You are really good at explaining each step of the exercise, where we should feel the stretch, and reminding us to breathe and stretch only to our limits.
Good warm down thanks !
I love it. finally I can do stretches again with no or very little pain. Thank you
Shin splints used to really bother me. Then I read Bob Smith's stretches. Simple. Warm up the muscle by walking 3 to 5 minutes. Stop and do 10 or 12 toe pointers (point down with the toe, return foot to neutral, point again and so forth) on each leg. Walk a few more minutes. Stop, do the toe pointers. Repeat 3 or 4 times. My son, who works retail and is on his feet all day uses this little exercise. Shares it with his coworkers, too.
Why does Spark People seem to always make things so complicated?
Thank you, Coach Nicole, for these tips that I think will help me prevent the injuries that plagued me before I found SparkPeople (and you!). :)
this felt fantastic since i worked out my legs yesterday, will definitely be using this stretch in the future!
Really love this stretching video! Thanks for an easy yet effective stretch!!
Thanks, really can use this.
Thank you! I would start doing it !
Great stretching exercise will have to do this.
