FOTM03 Tibialis anterior stretch


To improve the length, tone and flexibility of the tibialis anterior and muscles in the front of the leg.


Starting position:

From a standing position, stretch one leg behind and place the dorsal portion of the foot in contact with the floor.


Slowly place more weight over the foot being stretch by slightly leaning over it, so as to feel a stretch in the shin area.


This stretch is particularly beneficial for those suffering front anterior compartment syndrome, also known as shin splints.
