Shin splints are painful — and preventable. Here's one way 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 Reclining Hero in between each set.
