Yes I do couch stretches for tight quads and hip flexors as part of my routine twice a day. Hasn’t made any significant impact on my tightness. All the mobs help manage my tightness but nothing has been permanent. I had to sit for extended periods of time for 2 days last weekend and my tightness seemed to return rather quickly to painful levels.
