The shin stretch should be part of your exercise program to help prevent painful shin splints…tight lower leg muscles contribute to shin splints.
To do the shin stretch, stand upright and place the top of your toes on the ground behind you. Press your ankle to the ground.
Keep your calf muscles flexible by doing the leaning calf muscle stretch. Over-training and cheap footwear are also major causes of shin splints.
