Thank you for your response, unfortunately I do not have a coach that is able to watch me because I workout alone at home. I have used the voodoo band on my groin and high hamstring before and it seems to make it looser but yet I still can only drive my knees out so far. It’s like they just come to a stop all at once and this is when I feel all the tension in my groin. I do my very best not to over extend at the start of my squat by setting my hips, abs, and screwing my feet into the ground. I do banded hamstring flossing almost on a daily basis to try to warm them up and loosen any tension. If you have any other suggestions I would love the help, and could even send a video of myself squatting if you would prefer that.
Thank you for your time and advice.
