WODdoc Episode 180 Project365: Medial Shin Mash
180 … Half a year… Who would have thought it would go so fast. Hhahahahahaha. True story I didn’t realize it wasn’t a 1/2 year till right now when writing this. I was thinking like 360 and half was 180 but… 360 is when you spin in a circle and 365 is a year. Well, minor miss calculation. This happens.
Today’s topic is medial shin gunk. We showed a lateral shin release a couple days ago so check back if you missed that. Medial shins are a glutton for punishment. They house the posterior tibialis which is the primary stabilizer of foot and ankle. Considering the nature of CrossFit with the tremendous amounts of ballistic, lateral, stopping/starting, and jumping movements it’s know wonder the muscle that works the hardest to stabilize the foot gets fried.
Don’t Mash Blind.. Know Your Anatomy
Highlighted above: tibialis posterior and flexor digitorum longus
1. Spend 2-4 mins ball mashing each shin as shown in today’s video.
