If you have ever suffered the pain of the overuse injury referred to as shin splints, you know that it is something that you would much rather avoid than experience. Those who have never felt this particular ache have a name - Lucky. Shin Tekk is a new tool designed to strengthen the muscles and tendons controlling the ankle joint and foot.
A cleverly designed platform, with texturing to prevent slipping, wide enough for a foot to stand, with a U shaped lever which the toes slip under to lift. A small bungee chord creates resistance, in 8 different tensions designated by color, easily changed as strength increases. They range from Rehab, to Performance, to Advanced tensions, approximately 3 pounds to 15 pounds. The stronger the shins become, the better they can adapt to the stresses of running and sprinting, and conversely the quality of performances will benefit as well. My coach was a big believer in generating your own luck, and with a tool like the Shin Tekk, you can be lucky all season long.
