Keep Your Lower Legs Strong with the B8 Ankle Dorsiflexion Machine

Machine of the Month - B8 Ankle Dorsiflexion Machine

The B8, or ankle dorsiflexion, isolates and strengthens the anterior tibialis muscle in the front of the shins.

The anterior tibialis muscle helps to flex the foot upwards, as well as to control the foot as it lowers back to the ground. It is used in a number of everyday activities including, running, walking, and in sports such as tennis and basketball.

Strengthening the anterior tibialis muscle can help improve ankle balance, agility and coordination

Important Technique Points

  • Be sure to keep your body aligned and ensure your pelvis is not tilting to the side

  • Check that your shin remains in firm contact with the pad throughout the exercise

  • Keep your head in a neutral position

  • Be sure to grip the handles loosely

If you would like to add the B8 to your training program, be sure to talk to an Exercise Scientist.
