      Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to mobilize the peroneal tendons and the tibialis anterior etc? I’ve tried using a lacrosse ball but’s it difficult to trap the muscle without the ball sliding off the side of my shin or the muscle moving out of the way. It’s easy to work on the posterior tibialis since you can mash a Lax ball on the side of the calf but my peroneus longus, brevis and tertius all get extremely tight and cause lateral numbness below the knee. Since I do a lot of trail running and squatting I need to make sure my lower leg bits are up to the challenge so if anyone has any advice it is greatly appreciated!

      P.S. I have the following mobility tools at my disposal: Lacrosse ball, Lacrosse ball peanut, rumble roller, rogue fitness mobility bands, voodoo floss bands(red and black)

      You may need to pick a different type of ball.
      The lacrosse ball may be too dense.
      You may want to get the yoga tune up balls https://www.yogatuneup.com/product/therapy-ball/balls-tote
      The rubber grips your skin and hits multiple layers of muscle/tissue
