    While doing this stretch, it hurts a hell of a lot, how much pressure am I suppose to be putting? Is it suppose to hurt this much?

    Yes its supposed to hurt. Put as much pressure as you can take. After a few weeks it won't hurt as much. Real mean use PVC pipe on their IT band

    stretches your IT band, flushes out lactic acid, causes repair, makes grown men cry and shit like that

    If you also like to be punched in the face or hang in the air from your scrotum, then yes.
