What’s good guys,

So today I wanted to touch on a subject that a lot of athletes seem to have questions on.

If you’re a serious athlete that’s been training for a while, most likely you’ve suffered from some form of shin splints.

This is a bitch to have and will definitely affect your training because of how painful shin splints can be.

Well today’s your lucky day,I’m going to reveal to you exactly what the most common form of shin splints is, and how you can get rid of it.

Shin splints can be described as having a muscular imbalance in your lower leg (below the knee).

Calf

Having this form of imbalance causes your over active muscles (gastrocnemius and Soleus) in your low leg to create micro tears in the agonist muscle (anterior tibialas).

These micro tears are what actually causes the pain you feel when you suffer from shin splints.

If you want to get rid of shin splints once and for all, fix this imbalance. Start by stretching your calves and relaxing your hypertonic muscles.

Then dorsiflex your foot to activate your anterior tibias (heel walks). This will cause it to strengthen and repair the micro tears, which in return will cause less pain and ultimately fix your shin splints.

Nothing beats being a Balanced Athlete. Make sure you’re always working towards fixing and preventing muscular imbalances if you want to be an Ultimate Athlete.

Hope that helps you out.

Holler at your next time,
