Partial exercise examples
Figure 11.1 Weighted toe raise. page 215
Even runners who train with machines, body weight, or resistance bands should
consider concluding each exercise session with a set of weighted toe raises as
shown in figure 11.1. This simple exercise strengthens the shin muscles (anterior
tibialis) to maintain lower-leg muscle balance and reduce the risk of shin splints.
