It seems Kelly’s techniques can be roughly grouped into more distraction/stretching (like with a band) and smashing/flassing (like with a ball). I’m curious, is one type better to do before the other? ie should I lacrosse ball smash my shoulders and hips first, or distract them with a band to various end ranges first?
I believe you should be doing the band distractions first. He has said it opens up more tissues to smash and floss
it’s probably good to smash before and after. Smash to break up tissue to floss more range and smash again to suffer more I guess. Not sure the science or logical rational for smashing after flossing.
