Exercise to build Shin Muscles
I have heard that if you are working your calves you should work the counter muscle in your shins.
Can someone give me some pointers on how to accomplish this?
I suppose you mean the ankle flexor and extensors..
I'm no expert, but doing research I only found these would help:
Seated and Standing Toe Raise
I think the first is the one that really targets it..
Anterior tibialis - No need to target them specifically if you're doing heavy compound movements like squats and deads. But, if you do want to give them a little extra work: grab a few plates. Put one plate under your heels, and another plate on your toes, and do the oppisite of a calf press (bring your toes up while keeping your heels on the plate).
To target your peroneus (outer portion of your calves), do unilateral work like lunges, bulgarian squats, 1 leg DLs, etc.
How to work your Shin muscles..
*I went for an intensive Bicycle ride today after not cycling for about 4 weeks. When I cycle I position my feet in a tip-toe position on the peddle. As soon as I got home from the vigorous cycle I could already feel the Onset Muscle Soreness.
*When I skip rope I also do it while jumping up and down with my feet in the tip-toe position, my shins get Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) the next day.
In conclusion, anything involving tippie-toe with resistance e.g jumping up and down on your tip-toes, Sprinting!! OR maybe you could try holding some weights and just do tip-toes - up then down up then down.
I want big strong shin muscle so then it won't hurt as much when I low kick someone and they check (deflect) my kick, kick boxing.
the shin group are small muscles. Typically they are worked to mitigate any imbalances. I guess you could strap plates to your toes and do toe raises. lol
I also want to know that.I also really want to make it .
