Shin Splints: Leg Raises
Shin splints are painful — and preventable. Here's
to keep shin pain at bay.
Sit on a chair that's tall enough to allow your toes to point without touching the floor.
Place a two- to six-pound dumbbell vertically in between your feet, squeezing the weight gently to keep it in place.
Begin by pointing your toes toward the floor. Then flex your feet and lift your toes as high as you can. This is one repetition.
Complete three sets of 12 reps, stretching your shins with the
in between each set.
