tibialis anterior

Postby britkath » Fri Jul 01, 2005 5:03 pm

Does anyone have a good exercise for the tibialis anterior muscle. see: www.cse.ucsc.edu/~wilhelm...legs.m.gif
I do not have access to any weight systems, I normally use body weight and strandpulling exercises.

haven't tried them though, never felt any need. Do you have some trouble in this area or why do you want ot train these muscles?

They oftenget confused by the fact that they are almost half protein themselves.

You could just stand with your back to a wall, feet about 30cm from the wall and then lift your toes as far off the ground as you can, and repeat.
If you have any resistance bands you could hook one end round your toes whilst sitting down with your legs out straight in front of you, the other end around something solid and then pull your toes in towards you...

Good link Bronco.

I've never tried specifically working those muscles. I think I'm going to try out some reverse calf presses next time I do my normal calf presses

Its probably not such a good idea to develop these muscles to much as the Tibialis Anterior is stored within a bag of sorts; there is a limited amount of space for it to function.

Pro football players have problems with this muscle all the time, as they are so well developed; they end up falling over in pain during a match. They have to have an operation to remove the bag which contricts the muscle.
