    I often find myself only practicing M-F and not on the weekends. I feel like I spend Mondays undoing the stiffness from the weekend. I was curious what other people's opinions about how often they practice and the progress they feel like they're making.

    That is excellent thank you. Now I need to see if any research has been done regarding limits and average flexibility gained per week/month when training to push your limits.

    Along those lines, here is a TED talk from Rives regarding the mystery of 4AM. I heard an abbreviated version on the NPR TED Radio Hour. Many Poets and Writers apparently referenced the 4:00am hour. It is slightly too early for me because I do not have the determination to force myself to go to bed early. Currently I begin practice between 5:30 and 6:00am.

    This may not be beneficial for you but to get out of my own head I do a routine I'm not familiar with. It forces me to focus on my body instead of my thoughts drifting. If doing something repeatedly you're body is used to your brain doesn't have to think about it due to muscle memory. A service like Yogaglo.com might be beneficial with a hectic schedule. This may be completely off from the answers you're seeking and if so, sorry.

    I always assume it was upper body strength for crow. I'll make note to focus more on core work. Thanks for the advice.
