Why post this here? Because I figure the fighters on this site will be the ones most likely to have come across this.
I skip as part of my warm-up for lifting, recently, I’ve had shooting pain down the front of my shins. It started when I switched from just jumping two footed to running under the rope as well (mixing it up a bit).
They’re fine when I do movements that don’t involve moving my feet, such as squatting and deadlifting, but movements involving moving my feet cause shooting pains. At the moment, walking is an interesting challenge.
I assumed it was muscular, but I can pull my toes back towards my knee without pain (although it could be that my quad is activating over the muscle at the front of the shin), so I’m not sure that’s the problem.
Has anyone come across this, or got any idea what the hell I’ve managed to do to myself?
