Well, I'm going to try all of these suggestions, and hopefully will have some riding pics/videos to post after my surgery recovery! Thanks for the well wishes!
Picture is right on the stair advice. I usually will do a few sets then slowly touch my fingers to the floor and hold them there for about ten seconds. After a few sessions I can hold my fists down. No palms yet. :)
I find a hot shower is also a good place to do some long stretches as the heat really loosens the muscles. Just go slow and be fluid in your movement. No bouncing
I'm a novice, but the stretching has made a dramatic difference in my lessons.
Enjoy your life !
