    Posterior Shin Splints

    Tried foam rolling earlier this afternoon. I'm used to foam rolling my quads now, but all I have to say is foam rolling the inside of my shins/side calves hurt like hell. I also find it harder to hold myself up when foam rolling these areas compared to rolling quads with my face toward the...

    Posterior Shin Splints

    1) Yes, both in the same areas 2) It only started getting very painful when I increased my frequency of playing. I used to only play once per week if not less, but now I am playing maybe 3 or so times per week. The SuperFeet have helped quite a bit, I feel a lot less pain than usual though...

    Posterior Shin Splints

    Thanks for the tip, I do have a foam roller at home that I never though to use for my lower legs (only ever used it for quads and hammies). Will do some research on shin rolling.

    Posterior Shin Splints

    I picked up some Orange SuperFeet. I was tossing up between the 2 you suggested Systemic, but opted to get a bit more padding - I figure they will sit better in my Kobe 8 basketball shoes which have very little cushion once the default insole is replaced. And yes I'm going to stay off...

    Posterior Shin Splints

    Can anyone recommend solutions for Shin Splints? I have deduced (from Googling :confused:) that it's posterior shin splints, pain is mostly around the Posterior Tibial Tendon, I have slightly flat feet - somewhere between regular and flat I guess. edit: Seems the correct term is "medial tibial...

    AO14 QF MURRAY vs. FEDERER

    If Fed gets past Nadal his title will be automatic after that. The amount of confidence he'd be going into the finals with against Berdy or his buddy, after beating Nadal on HC? Off the charts

    AO14 QF MURRAY vs. FEDERER

    Not going to lie, I haven't watched tennis properly in about a year, only highlights.. but Murray seems like a completely different player from 2012, way more agressive.

    AO14 QF MURRAY vs. FEDERER

    Feels like a changing of the guard coming up Federer passed the torch, but he's comin back for it

    Multi-purpose shoes (tennis/basketball)

    The rubber being too hard is not really a problem for me, I can't remember the last time I played on indoor, when I play basketball it's either on concrete or a surface similar to tennis hardcourts. Most of my tennis is done on synthetic grass now, though every now and then if the grass courts...

    Multi-purpose shoes (tennis/basketball)

    Looking for some advice/suggestions on some shoes I can buy. I always play in Free Runs (bad idea, I know) and after putting my ankles through some pain this week I decided I need a pair of shoes with more support. Not only that but the concrete has shredded up my Free's quite nicely too. I'm...

    Is the notion of "Prime Federer" problematic?

    it's a lot easier to tell the difference between federer now and a few years ago if you watch some videos side by side and look at his feet rather than his racket

    Australian Open R3 - The GOAT v Roger Federer

    So I put up $60 against my cousins $20 for Federer beating Tomic. Not bad odds at 3-1, considering the bookies are basically paying 7-1 LOL. Easiest $20 I'm ever going to make.

    100 Million Dollar man

    I think Fed passed the 100 million net worth a while ago. With all his endorsements on top of prize money I wouldn't be surprised if he was hitting almost 40-50 mill a year.

    Roddick vs. A Kid

    Haha it would be awesome until you realise you've lost the last 20 points in a row without getting a single touch on the ball.
