Thanks again for the great info KW. I'll work on those stretches and hopefully get things loosened up. Do you have a background in PT? You use a lot of the same lingo as my PT friends.Bongo - fortunately, the hammy is the simplest major muscle to stretch effectively. And yoga isn't necessarily the best way to do it. It can be, but many people overdo it in yoga, which can have the opposite effect, as well as put too much pressure on the joints.
