Hi, I'm Denise Druce. Let's look at some exercises for the tibialis anterior. These are the muscles of the shins and when these are sore, you get shin splints. We'll talk about how to fix that. If you've ever had shin splints, you know exactly where the tibialis anterior is. It's this thick muscle that runs down the front of your shins. So strength and flexibility are the two things you can work on to help heal or even prevent shin splints. So let's look at toe taps, just sitting at your desk anytime you think about it, if you just tap your toes as fast as you can for as long as you can, that will help to strengthen this muscle. If you'd like to add a little bit of resistance, pick up a dumbbell, maybe seven, eight or ten pounds, place that on top of your foot, you can hold it for stability and then just lift and lower your foot, ten or fifteen times. So do those as often as you can, as often as you think about it. The third thing you can do is stretch this muscle. So to stretch the muscle, you want to get down on your knees and make sure your foot is flat, your shoelaces are on the ground and then just lift your knee, pushing the top of your shoe into the ground and hold that for a count of about ten.
