When you get better at this try going for 45 seconds or up to a minute, then taking just as much time off for an hour. You'll notice results pretty quickly if you do this a few times a week.
Yes, it can make your hips less flexible as a pro or amateur. Yet that is if your doing it commonly.

Nothing is wrong with a 30 minute bike ride once or twice a week. Zdeno Chara tours all of Europe every summer on a bike ride and mountain climbing.

Know the differ between the differ types of stretching. Idc if your a pro or amateur of any sport, if your desire is to be a more healthy and/or fit human being, you should be properly stretching daily and weekly. There are a few types that should be performed differently and at differ times.

All have their strengths and weaknesses.
