I have developed a pretty bad shin splint in my left leg from running over the past few months. Recently I've been limiting myself to the exercise bike for cardio and haven't done any leg work with heave weight. I'm planning on starting to work my legs again (squats, leg press, etc...) next Wednesday as my leg has been feeling better.
Will going back to doing leg work (excluding running) make the shin splint start to hurt again, or will it have the opposite effect and make me less likely to have recurring pain in my leg? Does anyone have any experience with this?
