Showing the Shins Some Love

Since I needed to find some stretches and exercises to strengthen my shins, I thought it would make a great topic for this week’s Five Minutes for Fitness.


After my extensive Internet searching, I learned that ankle curls help strengthen your shins.  If you don’t have weights, you can also a bucket filled with sand for the same effect.  



(Don’t you just love the music? 🙂 )


Of course, yoga is always a wonderful way for runners to help strengthen and stretch their muscles. 



One thought on “Showing the Shins Some Love

  1. Stretching is so…boring…I KNOW my hamstring issues were from a complete lack of stretching. I bought a book of stretches and vow to begin doing this more often…I promise.

    I will add this one to the list…but no yoga!
