Several of us, myself included on my second attempt, reported numb arms/hands/fingers/thumbs during and after 16.1.  As a I was quite frustrated by this during the workout, and especially when it came back during my workout the next day, I asked my smart friend, Zach Greenwald of Strength Ratio, if there was anything I could do to make it go away faster.

Thankfully, he shared some advice in the video above, which he kindly said I could share with Arena Ready.  I did the things he suggested, directed at reducing tingling in the thumb side of my hand and much of my left arm, and it seemed to be very effective as I felt no tingling or numbness during the workout tonight.  I wanted to pass it on in case any of you are also feeling this residual effect of 16.1.  He also shared the below video which could be helpful in reducing tingling on the pinky side of your hand.

To be clear, these videos are intended to be quick, easy fixes to a minor, easily resolved problem.  As always, if you have a more serious problem, and/or these quick fixes don't work, we highly recommend you seek professional advice, and make sure you mention it to your Coach before class.
