Posterior tibialis exercise

The posterior tibialis exercise targets this muscle specifically by combining the two movements which it performs. This muscle may need strengthening to help reduce overpronation.


Teaching Points:

  • The band is looped around the forefoot of the exercising leg with the other leg crossed over the top.
  • The athlete simultaneously pushes the foot down and turns the sole of the foot in against the resistance.
  • The combination of plantarflexion and inversion work the Tibialis Posterior.
  • Return to the start position under complete control.
