one of the things i remember most from his Joe Rogan interview, was him talking about how he just felt so jacked up after years of training, stress, etc.. that he just started stretching for hours and "unwound" himself. (his hip flexors were especially tight)



something from a Goggins interview:

12. Stretching the body can be healing
David Goggins had to take a break from competing because of some major health issues he was dealing with. He attributes his recovery to stretching for hours at a time. He learned that the more he stretched the quicker he was recovering. He started out stretching for 8 hours a day. After a while he reduced it 4 hours and now he stretches for 2 hours a day. Now that he is recovered and competing again, he noticed that stretching so much has led to him having more flexibility in his hips, which has led to him being able to knock 1 minute off of his already impressive running pace. He was able to complete a 50-mile ultra marathon with a 7:30 minute per mile pace. Hearing this definitely inspired me to want to take more time to stretch my own body each day.
