PNF Stretch: IT Band and TFL

Beginner I
A good IT band and TFL stretch can be the difference between running with and without pain and discomfort. This stretch helps runners and athletes recover from chronic IT band tightness, releasing two muscles that play such an important role in running.

Hi, I was wondering what, other than the strap position, is different between this and the piriformus stretch from day 10? I think I just be missing something because the movements and where I feel them are the same. Thanks!

I did Day 1 of the New Year’s Challenge then skipped ahead to this video. I plan to do this one every day. I’ve been seeing a physical therapist for months for IT band syndrome. I have prescribed exercises, have had several dry needling sessions, use a foam roller and the only day I was completely pain free was after a restorative yoga class. I’m not really a beginner, but I want to see if athletic PNF stretches for a month might be the secret sauce I have been missing. I certainly felt the stretches. Thanks!
