    I started doing yoga to try and loosen up my IT band, and hamstrings. Many of the exercises really open up your hips, stretch the muscles and ligaments, and lubricate the joints. I highly recommend trying it. Start with a beginner class, or if there aren't any classes local to you, try some of these:

    Here ya go. Give this one a try. It's one of my favorites. Really opens up the hips, stretches the IT bands, Hamstrings, etc.

    I do this stretch for both running and cycling. I put my right feet on my left knee. I lie on my back, and grab with both hands under my left knee and pull towards my chest. That stretch everything around my hip, groin, hamstring.

    And there is good chance that I will go through my life NEVER doing yoga. The most I'll do related to yoga is oggling at women in yoga pants. Don't have time for yoga. Stretch, and run or cycle. None of this meditative bs. I can meditate/concentrate on my breathing and become serene while I run/cycle.

    This is all good. Thanks. I don't care if it is called yoga or anything. If it hurts it is good!

    Ah, come on. Give your cycling buddies a big group hug, hold hands and sing songs together, and sip a glass of wine. You'll feel better
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    I rather oggle at yoga pants than hug yoga hippies.

    Check out Kelly Starrett for some good stretching information. He has a youtube channel with a lot of short mobility tips, even one including Levi Leipheimer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZNdCuLKh0o

    I got the book he wrote and i find it's very helpful.

    What does that have to do with oggling at yoga pants? If I wanted to get laid, it's called a girlfriend or for others a spouse. Unless you are implying you sleep around with randoms a lot? Not the life style I want.

    Yes of course. What budhists invented to help them relax and reach enlightenment, of course it's not meditative.

    Today, it's just an excuse for me to see women stretching in erotic positions in yoga pants. That's fine by me too.
