don't ice it actually. try some glute/hip flexor stretches. stiffness in these can result in stiffness in the hammies and can cause you to not be able to get a full ROM in the hammies thus you need to stretch em!NEW GOAL(s):

Soft-tissue work on:
1. All of the above.
Get your hands on Magnificent Mobility, and a good kinesiology book.Isaiah 43:2: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
