Ice it every hour Reinhard. This is crucial in healing and lowering 
your inflammation...Ibuprofen has a good effect too.
19 minutes on, and once it is numb stop...
Take a break for a half hour...
Then another icing for 19...
If you don't have ice, use frozen food, like a bag of frozen corn or 
if desperate, whatever lean cuisine your boss had planned for 
lunch :)

That sounds like perfect material for Americas Home Videos..did you 
capture it on Quicktime...just kidding, I hope you feel better soon.
It's a little weird that you wrote about "looking down" as the 

culprit, because as I was working out just now, I thought "hey I 
should really write to Reinhard about his form in the Quicktime 
videos and it was that precise movement "looking down" I was going 

to mention, in things to avoid while SG...Weird man.
Hope you feel better soon
