Here’s a quick & simple exercise for the Tibialis Anterior.
I know this sounds fancy & exotic but it is a very important muscle to the side of our shin(Tibia) that is mainly responsible for pulling the toes towards the knee (dorsiflexion) & turning the foot inwards(eversion).
If this muscle is not as strong as it needs to be it can cause things like shin splints-mainly in endurance athletes or sports that involve a lot of running, jumping, changing direction quickly etc.
Increased risk of rolled ankles, Achilles tendinitis, knees issues and more.
So probably a good idea to crack on with this exercise😀
It can affect the way we walk because you may not be able to lift your foot high enough off the floor causing you to trip or fall.
The altered walking technique can then cause problems in other areas such as the knee or hip.
Let’s talk numbers
8 reps each leg. 2 sets.
After a few weeks progress to 3 sets
Then you will probably want to make it a bit harder by having a heavier band, moving further away etc.
