I don't know where you're from, but you should check out Ginástica Natural. It's a super cool bodyweight gymnastics exercise routine invented by Orlando Cani that draws itself from Yoga, dance movements, Kempo and Chi-Chuan. It's practiced by world-class athletes from all different sports, specially jiu jitsu.

I've heard great things about Coach Chris Sommer's Gymnastic Bodies: it's got a bunch of online resources to help you improve your flexibility and strength.

If your time budget is short and you're just looking for quick routines to do before and after class, you should check out the "Stretching" book, by Bob Anderson, with many stretching routines that help you get rid of your body's stiffness.

Finally, if you're super rich and don't mind joining a soft religion/cult-like movement, take a look at Ido Portal's Movement Culture. The guy's super controversial, but he really is very proficient at what he does.

I had major knee pain on the bike. Get a good bike fit which includes cleat alignment. This solved the problem for me going forward. To relive the current pain in your knee, invest in a foam roller and use it often on your IT band. I stayed off the bike for 2 weeks and stretched twice a day including foam roller. Haven't had an issue since.

Edit: this book is awesome if you need stretches to do. Has specific routines for all kinds of sport including cycling.

Try moves that increase the flexibility in your hamstrings. I know thats pretty vague but its a giant tendon that is responsible for a lot of movements. Take a look at "Stretching", by Bob Anderson. Probably the best book for just stretching IMO, even has climbing specific stretches.

Normally, I just have a little chuckle at these TIFU posts and move on with my day. But today I would like to make a suggestion for you. Pick up this book simply titled Stretching by Bob and Jean Anderson. The best thing I personally got from the book (other than how to stretch) is not to care what you look like to the outside world during exercise. And they have a great little section on getting into a running routine. Don’t be afraid to alter their suggestions and advance through their schedule faster or slower as you see fit. Exercise routines are not a one-size-fits-all sort of thing. Keep with it and, most importantly, have fun!

Thanks for the great rely, your description is very accurate of how I feel. I am thinking of getting this book and figuring out a routine for myself.
Thanks for the motivation.

Are you interested in becoming a massage therapist, is that what you mean? What sort of self care are you talking about?

I don't know of any books or packages of information describing specific self care techniques for therapists, but maybe there is one out there. I just use the knowledge I have attained over the years and apply it to what I do, and what I need to fix with myself - and what I help my clients with.

Having knowledge and having awareness in nutrition, physiology, anatomy, remedial exercises/kinesiology ect. is all very important.. I could list text books which pertain to these areas, but I highly doubt you'd want to spend the money or time haha D:

There are some good stretching books out there here is one for example - I was told to buy one similar to it when I was in school, but I never did :s

If you know all the muscle oia's of the body, you shouldn't need a stretch book. This is a good book for a muscle visualization

if you are wanting to become a massage therapist though, I recommend you go to a reputable college and take the course, even if your area isn't regulated or not. It's totally worth it.

Get the book Stretching by Bob Anderson and enjoy the wonderful world of flexibility. I went from having very little flexibility in my hips to being very comfortable with the more difficult submissions and sweeps.

I'm not sure that I understand but THIS might help

Stretching. it actually can feel like hard work while you are doing it but you feel so relaxed after. Listening to music that you find calming while doing so is helpful too, and the effect is long lasting if you do it regularly.

What did your PT recommend?

This is the classic book on stretching:

Realize that your body will adapt to specific stretches. You will want to change up your stretches periodically to balance your body overall. In other words, if you always stretch your hamstrings in one way, they will become limber in that one way.

I second the beginner yoga - look for videos on-line.
