Okay, the next stretch you're doing is the Standing Shin Stretch. The Standing Shin Stretch is good if you have shin splints, or to actually prevent from getting shin splints.

What you're going to do is you're going to stand, shoulders tall, stand up straight. And you're going to put your toe on the ground. And you're going to push your toe into the ground and you're going to feel a stretch throughout this area right here. So, nice and tall. Put your toe into the ground. Feel a stretch in that front of the leg. Hold it for about 20 seconds. And then you're going to switch legs.

So same thing, other side. Put that toe on the ground. Feel a stretch throughout the front of that shin. And then another set. Same thing, other side. Toe on the ground. Feel a stretch throughout the front of that leg. Then switch sides again. 20 seconds. Make sure that you're nice and tall, your core is tight, your back is straight.

It's a good stretch to add to your overall leg stretches, especially if you get shin splints. You want to make sure that your shins are stretched before you go running or any kind of cardio movement. And there you go. So that's your Standing Shin Stretch.
