Shin Splints: Calves Roll
Pay special attention to tight spots, allowing the tension to sink into the roller.
Sit on the floor with your left ankle crossed over your right, and place the roller under your right calf.
Lift your pelvis off the ground so your weight is supported by your hands and the roller.
Roll the length of your calf, from the back of your knee to the Achilles tendon. Do roll the inside and the outside of the muscle as well.
Repeat for 30 to 60 seconds, then switch legs.
