So, anytime I squat I am getting some pretty ugly pain in my hip flexors. Today I failed on a single at 100# less than my PR because the pain sucked so bad. I don’t even have to be squatting, just lifting my knee to my chest, I hit a wall at about 90 Degrees. I have stretched the crap out of them, smashed my quads, no change. Today was the worse, but I did have about 6 hours of driving to do last night and accumulated probably 8 mins a side of stretching, so that’s not super ideal, but any who, Thoughts?
May want to have someone look at your squat mechanics.
You may be doing something slightly different from restrictions you may not be aware are happening.
Have you hit any hip openers?
