Hi, it means that has muscles are tight from sitting in the same position for so long, so he needs to get up and "stretch his legs". For example, walk and move around, allowing the blood to flow to his muscles and therefore regain normal feeling in his legs. This feeling can occur if you lie in the same position in bed, perhaps are sitting in a long class or even if you are standing for too long.
