I learned this exercise from @kneesovertoesguy back in 2020.
While I never had shin splints, I did find it effective in increasing overall ankle strength, and I still like to do it 1-2 times a week.
For people who do have shin splints, or are are having a sprained ankle, this exercise is essential.
The anterior tibialis is a small muscle, you’re not going to use crazy amounts of weight, I suggest 1 to 3 sets in the 10 to 20 refrain, the strength standard being 20% of your Bodyweight for your 10 reps.
The tibialis bar I am using here is from @mr1nf1n1ty, great quality and works exactly as it should.
