Fitness Tip: Foam Roll & Inchworm

Toya’s Tips!
(To avoid getting shin splints and relieve tightness in the front of your leg)

  • Kneel and place the roller under both shins while supporting your upper body with your hands.
  • Roll down to your ankles and back to the knees. Be careful not to roll over the knee  joint.
  • Remember to roll down the ankle to get the entire shin.
  • The shins are often a neglected area—athletes often focus on the back of the leg.

INCHWORM (Release for Glutes, hamstrings and Calves)
  • Stand with your legs straight, feet hip-width apart (A).
  • Bend at the waist and place your hands on the floor (B).
  • Keeping your legs straight, walk your hands forward while keeping your abs and lower back braced. Then take tiny steps to walk your feet back to your hands
  • Do ten repetitions
