Billy sucks, you come to my gym (my basement & garage), I will teach to kickbox & stretch your hamstrings. Hey wait, you're in Arizona, I am retiring there in a decade, stick around!

LOL! I was hoping to move to Washington state soon, but at the rate I'm going, it might be a decade before I can move! lol What's the draw of AZ, if I may ask? I've lived here all my life and really don't see anything special about it. lol
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

This exercise should get you laughing. A 10" or 12" piece of 2x6 is set on the floor about 2 feet or so out from the wall. Wearing your riding boots, place the ball of the feet on the board and drop your heels to the floor. Use the wall for balance. OK, likely you are leaning forward a bit and your bum is sticking out. Now, straighten your knees. Now pull your bum in toward the wall and stand up nice and straight, if you can. Usually about this time the laughter starts. Feel the pull all the way up including the glutes. Relax and repeat 9 more times, daily then twice daily. Gradually increase how long you can stand straight. Set it up so you can watch tv. It works.
