... ight, tight, tight hamstrings! This hugely effects my lower back. On any given day, I can't bend even close to halfway to my toes... however, if I stretch out my hamstrings for about 30 seconds each leg, I can then immediately bend over double with no pain whatsoever. ... (5 replies)

... ut feeling so big, bulky and unflexable and the weight gain I always feel hungry when I lift weights. I always go back to yoga to get rid of some of the bulk and loosen the hamstrings back up. ... (4 replies)
