Happy New Year everyone! I can’t believe it’s already 2018! Have you set any goals for yourself for the coming year? Hopefully one of them is to add more stretching to your life!
For the first month of 2018 we will focus on stretching muscles along the front of our shins. In my experience, a large percent of the population I have worked with has muscle stiffness along the shins. Have you ever experienced shins splints? Or cramping when you sit back on your heels with the tops of the feet flat to the floor? Then this month’s stretches are for you!
For the first week of January, we will be performing a Seated Shin Stretch. It will stretch all the muscles from the bottom of your knee down to the top of your foot. You will need a chair for this week’s stretch. As always, please consult your physician before attempting this stretch if you have any ankle or foot injuries.
