Back Squats.... Lingering Iliopsoas Soreness

https://youtu.be/CDqFttvKU5A

I realize the angle is pretty bad, but do folks see that I'm doing right and wrong?

I've got some lingering soreness most pronounced in my left Iliopsoas.

What stretches should I add to my pre-workout routine?

Re: Back Squats.... Lingering Iliopsoas Soreness

Hi ya, Brent. Your squat looks ok from that angle, hips lower then knee, back/core kept tight through out the lift. I can't say how your knees are tracking from there.

Be sure you are driving your knees out on the way down and back up. to engage the gluts and hamstrings too.

For the soreness I Don't know how you already warm up, but I'd add this (WFS)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3ZanLgAxM4 pre and post, I do this every day. Also roll that area on a ball, (WFS) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_OfWnqMgPQ

I'd roll the gluts, calf stretch and also roll the lower back too. I hope this helps.

Let me know how it goes.I roll and stretch each area 1:00min a spot, That makes for a short rolling and stretching session and is plenty of time per area.

Re: Back Squats.... Lingering Iliopsoas Soreness

Hey buddy, It seems your having some hip flexor pain because your starting that squat realllllllly over-extended. Lower back a little lit up too? If not, it will be. Here are some videos explaining it.
