Starting mid-December my right hamstring became painfully tight. Specifically, it hurts at the very top and very bottom of the muscle. I stretch all day and the next morning it’s tight and painful again. Strangely, when I do direct hamstring work, it seems to feel better for a day or so. Ice doesn’t seem to help at all.
I’m starting to suspect I strained it and maybe I’m reaggravating it by aggressively stretching it daily (?). Should I avoid leg exercises altogether for a while? I was thinking of switching to a trap bar deadlift (in lieu of conventional deadlift and squat) so I’m still getting some lower body work.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
