1. Medial Shin Smash

-Sit on the floor or on a box and cross one leg over the opposite knee.  Use a lacrosse ball and roll it along the space between your shin and your calf muscle.  Apply a downward force.  This will get the muscle that runs along the backside of your shin (tibia) bone.  Very helpful for ankle mobility and things like shin splints.
