The tibialis anterior muscle is located in the front of the lower leg and is responsible for dorsiflexion (lifting the foot up towards the shin). Strengthening this muscle can help improve balance, stability, and prevent injuries. One exercise that targets this muscle is the toe raise.
Begin by sitting with your legs straight out in front of you and place a resistance band around the top of your foot. Flex your foot towards your shin against the resistance of the band. Release slowly and repeat for 10-15 reps on each foot. This exercise can be done daily to help strengthen the tibialis anterior muscle.
