Post your best stretches here, any recommended stretches you have.

Here is a page that discusses the benefits of stretching:

I also highly recommend that regardless of the stretch, you should hold it for at least 30 seconds, and make a point of breathing in and out very slowly throughout. If you don`t breathe when stretching, and if you don`t hold a stretch for at least 30 seconds, it has very little impact.

I find this is a good stretching schedule for footbag.

1. The day before a shred, stretch your shins.
2. The day of the shred, spend around 5 minutes just warming up: kicking around a footbag, lightly jogging, whatever.
3. After warming up, stretch. Remember to breathe and hold your stretches.
4. Shred.
5. Stretch a little between turns.
6. When you are done shredding, cool down for a few minutes.
7. Stretch some more after you have cooled down.

Yoga is fantastic!! There are too many great stretches to post here. Aside from that, I find that the ones Hood has listed on his web site are very, very good.

Which, if any, of the (very nicely, probs!) illustrated streches then streches your shin?

If none, then how do you do it? My shin hurt so bad...
