Kayty, my understanding is you can only influence the leg (or at least the most) while it's off the ground, not on ground..?
BTW, I did search on WHEN to do it (out of curiosity) and the responses split 50% : 50%. Personally I tried both and got better response (more impulsion) when asking while getting up.
