Overview of Tib Raise & Scoring Criteria
Tibialis training is key for athletic & everyday mobility and physical longevity. There are many variations and approaches but don't forget the core principle: Small daily deposits create big compounding returns. Tibialis Training done with any variation is more important than the variation itself.
With that said, we'll introduce three variations of Tibialis Raises and score them with 5 criteria them across 5 dimensions.
- Setup difficulty - how easy it is to setup the exercise (Hard = 1; Med = 2; Easy = 3)
- Time to execute - time it takes to perform repetitions across both legs (Long = 1; Medium = 2; Short = 3)
- Progression - how easy it is to progress the exercise with weight and/or reps (Hard = 1; Med = 2; Easy = 3)
- Deep stretch load - the ability to have and control the weighted stretch, safely (No stretch = 1; Little stretch = 2; HUGE stretch = 3)
- Best benefit for your time - the highest return exercise for your time spent (Nothing = 0; Minimal = 1; Moderate = 2; Maximum = 3)
Scores & Final Winner of Best Tib Raise Variation
Our top exercise is definitely Tib Bar Raises (link to our detailed walkthrough) and Wall Tibialis Raises (link to our detailed walkthrough). The other variations can be an affordable way of challenging your Tibialis exercises and training BUT have obvious limitations. With Tib Bar Tibialis Raises, you can easily, quickly and scalably strengthen your Tibialis for the long-term. With Wall Tibialis raises, you can always quickly get a Tibialis workout but you're limited in ways to challenge yourself.
We'll always recommend to work with what you have. While you're working on your Wall Tibialis raises, come check out our Tib Bars! When you're ready for one, so are we :-) We ship across Europe!
