    My leg muscles get very tight from cycling. I find jogging on pavement really helps to decompress my muscles. What stretches and reverse exercises do you use to decompress from cycling?

    I think that when you are stretching to cycle you should want to use the same types of stretches you use when jogging.

    I don't understand what decompression means. I presently have an occasional swelling on my leg muscle, just behind the shin. Perhaps it is that feeling of tightness in the muscle? But I always relax with my feet up when I reach home after biking. Normally, I sit in front of the tv to rest for at least 30 minutes with my feet resting on a stool so that probably would ease up the tension in my muscle.
