Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
I am curious about something. I can do the couch stretch for 5-6 minutes per leg with nothing weird going on – no hot nervy pain, no numbness.
I’ve noted that, especially on days where I’ve had a significant workout, I develop numbness on the side of my leg by my hip, or in my quad close to my IT band – but only if I’ve been seated for a period of time. I am assuming that this is a sign of tightness and I am working to address that, just curious to hear what others might think. This is very common, and especially noticeable on days when I’ve done a lot of running or rowing.I am not doing any heavy lifting right now due to some mechanical shoulder issues that prevents that – the only real lifting I do is for technique and ROM, not for weight.
