Yeah I’ve always heard Kelly reference research that has found it takes a minimum of 2 minutes to permanently change soft tissue.

I’ve never heard a maximum time mentioned. I would agree with Kaitlin – if you have the time and can handle the new range, keep going until you no longer gain additional ROM.
