Shins

Suggested Duration: Hold tender spots for 15-30 seconds or until you feel a significant decrease in pressure

Benefits

Your shins have muscles on either side of the bone that get pretty tight. The muscles on the front of your lower leg are rarely stretched, and can get very tight over time as well. Stretching them helps with overall leg health.

 

How-to

To target these hard-to-reach muscles, come to a hands-and-knees position. From there, place the foam roller beneath your shins. Roll up and down, tilting your legs to the left or right to reach the muscles on the sides of your shin.
