I think what's important to think about WRT to tighness and pain stems is that in mnay cases it stems form the muscle being weak and inhibitied in that position so if anything I'd do more squatting or other movements at a load (lighter and for more reps) and in positons that will help the hips get stronger and more flexible.

for instances, if hamstrings are tight ang inhibited in a pull, I'd do RDL's which strenghthen and lengthen the hamstrings.

for my tight hip flexors this means wide stance box squatting or sumo deadlifting.
