    I started practicing some basic planche progressions recently, starting with a basic frog stand...

    Felt fine and was starting to be ablr to hold it for a minute or so... but 2-3 days ago I noticed my right shin and ankle felt all numb and tingly.

    Went and got it checked to make sure it wasnt anything serious, but it turned out to just be a compressed nerve.

    Now I'm not entirely sure it's from the frog stands as I've been doing a lot of work on my computer this past week as well (so sitting down longer than usual).... However assuming it is, is this a common thing to have happen or is it indicative of me doing the exercise incorrectly?

    I can probably get a video of me performing the exercise if necessary.

    Really annoying as I felt like I was making progress hehe

    Show the frog stand to whoever diagnosed your compressed nerve and ask them if it could be implicated.

    I did, doctor said it might be the cause.

    More curious about if that means I'm doing the exercise incorrectly since I havent heard of this being a potential issue.
