I have been following Kelly’s videos and I find they help get my extension back, but it seems to go back to the normal slight bend later. Would it be possible my insanely tight hips are getting my knee out of position?

Are you working on it 10-15:00 everyday?
If you are and aren’t seeing improvements you need to relook at how you are addressing it.
Working up/down stream of where you see the issue is key.
Where you see the problem isn’t always where the situation originates.
Have you used a voodoo band on your knee?

When the main engines of the hip or shoulder need attention you can see downstream impact.
The body will make compensations for a time until you hit the tissue tolerance. No warning just game over.

Thanks for the videos. I have taken the occasional day off and I feel I’m tackling the quad down over the course of 45 minutes. Perhaps I need to target specific areas each day for shorter amounts of time.
My shoulders, traps, hips, quads, hamstrings are all very tight. I hurt it while squatting with only the bar doing an olympic lift. I have spent many years weight lifting and sitting at a computer all day with no stretching or mobility work.
I haven’t picked up a voodoo band yet, but I will. Just now I booked an appointment with a Mobility Wod certified physio because my current one mainly tells me to stretch without much detail.

Consistent focused work is key.
Yes, each session would address a max of 3 different mobilizations.
10-15:00 a couple times a day works great. Morning and night or morning, noon, and night.
Maybe you can borrow a voodoo band until yours arrives?
Squatting with the bar was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
This was the cumulation of movement errors over time.
The amount of time you spend sitting is an impacting factor with your tight areas.
Great to hear you are seeing a practitioner.
A second opinion is needed when you aren’t getting all you need from someone.
Start with the spine first, next move to the primary engines of the hip and shoulder.
Spine first then move to the primary engines of the hip and shoulder.
I’d recommend getting Deskbound this will help address the negative impact of sitting a computer all day.
Short breaks worked into your day help reset.
