hmm sounds like you should quit your job LOL!
well i guess that’s not an option. some things to try:
1. since being unmoving is causing the problem, you could try moving more. so get up out of your chair in regular intervals – take a walk, stand for a few minutes (and practice standing posture and proper diaphragmatic breathing!), do some mobs or smashes, go to the bathroom or get some coffee. do it for 10 min every hour, or 5 min every half hour.
2. try a standing desk. this may aggravate your knee but maybe not. you can also try using a box to alternate putting one leg up on top of to vary position.
3. try mobilizing before bed. work up and down *both* legs, as one could be tightening up due to pain and the other may be tightening up due to compensating for the other leg’s problem. work the back also: QLs, erectors, work the t-spine. work the hips and glutes, also work a big ball into your psoas and front torso muscles. make sure everything is good and loose before you go to bed.
is that 6am class a crossfit class or other?
