Rice Sock Semi Erection
When I do my pre-workout warmup with the rice sock, some combination of the heat and the contact gives me a semi-erection and increased engorgement even when completely flaccid after removing the heat. That engorgement seems to limit my stretch length during the actual stretching part of my workout. My BPFSL actually measures slightly longer if I just checked it before warming up with the rice sock.
Is there anything I might change up in the routine because of this? Maybe doing half my stretching before heat, and half after heat?
