Moving down to the lower part of your legs, you have the calves. Your stability and balance absolutely depend on these muscles, since your calves help you maneuver and position your feet. They also stabilize your ankles. Finally, on the front of your lower leg, there lie the tibialis and other shin muscles. You've noticed these muscles if you've ever had a case of shinsplints. But they do more than make you feel stiff after a hard run; they support your arches and also help you raise your foot. Basically every movement you make with your lower body involves your calves, so it is extremely important to strengthen them! This section covers the most important calf exercises available to you.
