The Ready State Virtual Mobility Coach is like having a virtual Kelly Starrett in your pocket.

I have been faithfully following prescriptions from the Supple Leopard & TRS Virtual Mobility Coach – and can truthfully tell you my pain/range of motion has improved drastically. I am just wondering about the general feeling of pain – I wake up sore in my lower back and glutes every morning. Does anyone have experience with this? Will it eventually go away? Should I be taking a supplement to better ‘grease’ my joints? Any feedback is appreciated.

Great to hear you are seeing drastically improved pain/range of motion while utilizing Supple Leopard & the Virtual Mobility Coach!
Has anything changed in your daily activities/routine?
Is the pain in your lower back and glutes something new?
What position do you sleep in?

Thanks Kaitlin – I will check out the episode above…pain in Glutes/Lower Back are not new – I should mention that I sit at a desk for a living – so I know that is an issue. My sport history is I played Rugby and Hockey for many years – so lots of physical contact which resulted in injuries.
Now I spend most of my down time Mountain Biking.
Many people my age (50) believe morning aches/pains are just part of aging…I refuse to subscribe to that narrative … so the journey continues.

I agree morning aches/pains are not just part of aging.
Great to hear you have a history of being active and are continuing to be active.
Addressing the impact of long periods of sitting will definitely help.
At night undoing the impact of the day and/or proactively addressing something in the morning: Quads, psoas, hips, t-spine or wherever needs attention.
Taking a look at your sitting position can help too.
