The blistering heat that goes along with NFL training camps is no big deal for St. Louis Rams tight end Lance Kendricks. During the offseason, the 251-pound Kendricks got acclimatized attending hot yoga classes twice a week, doing his poses with the thermometer ratcheted up to 90 degrees for 90 minutes. He's proud to say he never ducked out. Kendricks, a second-round pick last year, decided to give hot yoga a shot after reading articles piqued his interest. He also learned of pro athletes reporting gains in flexibility, making them less injury-prone. Just like his rookie year, Kendricks is having a nice preseason.
