Anterior Compartment Leg Shin muscle stretch

by admin on December 8, 2009

This video demonstrates an effective stretch of the shin muscles. Your shin muscles run from the knee down towards the ankle. These muscles are most used in any activity where we are upright, standing, walking, or running.

To stretch your shin muscles, position yourself as follows. Kneel down and have your sitting bones push down on your heel so your foot is flat and lengthening. If you do not feel a stretch in front of the shins in this position, it is more than likely that you do not need to stretch these muscles. Maintain this position for a minimum of 30 seconds, to a maximum of 90 seconds. This should be enough time to stretch both sets of shin muscles effectively. It is very important to stretch these muscles, especially if you are involved in any sports that involve running, walking or prolonged standing.
