something like

SetAttributes[DoPrint, HoldAll]

DoPrint[body_, {i_, i1_, i2_}] := Module[{split},
   split = Hold[body] /. CompoundExpression -> List;
   split =
    Flatten[split //. {Hold[{a_, b___}] :> {Hold[a], Hold[b]} ,
       Hold[a_, b__] :> { Hold[a], Hold[b]}}];
   split = split /. Hold[a_] :> Hold[Print[a]];
    ReleaseHold[split /. i -> ii], {ii, i1, i2}


  Sin[x]; q; y = i^2, {i, 1, 3}]
