Stretch It: Kneeling Shin Stretch

The shins are one of those things that we often forget to stretch but a little stretching of the shins can go a long way, especially if you're suffering from shin splints. The kneeling shin stretch is an easy stretch to do for the shins. If you suffer from knee problems this may not be a good stretch for you.

Here's how to do it:

  • Kneel on both knees with your booty over both heels and feet extended back.
  • Slowly sit down on heels — or as far as you can go toward them, it shouldn't hurt. Try not to sit between ankles.
  • Hold the position for 20-30 seconds and repeat as needed.

This a great stretch to do while watching tv, reading, etc. I heard from yoga instructor that it also aids in digestion.
