Dorsi flexion with band

Dorsiflexion is the movement of pulling the foot upwards. Using a resistance band to perform this movement will strengthen the shin muscles.

Teaching Points:

  • A resistance band is wrapped around the forefoot and anchored to a fixed point in front of the foot.
  • The athlete starts with the foot pointed away and dorsiflexes or pulls the foot up so the toes point to the ceiling.
  • Return to the starting position slowly and under complete control.
