    When ever i box box squats or regular squats with a wide stance, i get this pain in the middle of my right shin. it really hurts to touch and i hit it on a table pretty lightly earlier and it fucking kills. I haven't hit it on anything recently or anything like that, so i assume it's the squats


    f&n, wtf is wrong with me?

    ya it's pretty fucked up, but it's not like the shooting pain from shin splints. it's more like just in one spot on the front of the shin

    Do have flat feet, high arches. this could be a cause.

    well, one thing you could do to ease the pain is using ice cups. Fill water into paper or styrofoam cups, putting them in the freezer and then rubbing them on your shins for about five minutes. Make sure you move them consistently for the whole time around the area to prevent burns. Second thing, would be to take some anti inflamatories for a couple of days, motrin or any ibuprofen brand is fine. Next thing would be stretching and exercises. Make sure you stretch out your calves well and do single leg stance balance exercises to fire all the muscles in your lower leg. Shoes can also have an effect as well as proper mechanics of the lift.
