I’m a little over a month into The Great Stretch now and while I think I’ve gotten my head around the day-to-day, I still question if I’m doing a lot of things right.

The first two weeks I wore the Tugger I kept the strap flush along my inner thigh simply because that’s where it was lined up when I put it on in the morning. Since I work a desk job, the sitting and standing would cause an issue with tension consistency. Standing would be fine, but sitting would leave the pulley strap too slack.

With a little experimentation (and re-reading the TLC Tugger email confirmation…) I realized it was better to position the point of connection below your knee from the inside of your leg to the outside. By doing that I was able to keep the tension between standing and sitting consistent. Now that might seem incredibly obvious to you as it does to me now, so that got me thinking if there aren’t any other tips I’m not picking up on.

Not only did moving the point of connection to the outside of my leg help with consistent tension, it also reduced the frequency the device would fall off. For the first few weeks that was a bit of an annoyance so it’s nice to see it staying in place for longer periods. ┬áBut it’s still far from perfect, I’ll admit, as the Tugger pulls off on average 3 times daily.

I would like it if it didn’t pull off at all, but I’m not about to start taping or getting into any messy powders now. Maybe some readers could provide some helpful tips on how they improved their own TLC Tugger tugging?
