    When I run, my tibialis anterior would get very tight. Is it the reason that I did not exercise the muscle during workout. I usually just workout the calfs. Or my running technique is poor?

    Try a good stretch by pointing your toes. You can also place the top of your foot on an object and stretch your anterior tibialis from there.

    How regularly do you run? If you run once in a while, and you feel tightness there, that's normal. If you run regularly (i.e., twice a week or more), then I would be concerned.
