Hey thanks Eva, I actually read up last night on it and I understand the mechanics a bit more. Both legs feel fine today, but I am not going to be so cavalier with my lifts next time. There's no reason to look for new and exciting ways to hurt myself ;)

The adductor thing seems like two possibilities: 1, I just have a muscle imbalance because I have deadlifted much more than squat in the past 6 months, and on the DL I get my legs slightly above parallel when I start (long arms). So I never really work the hip as significantly as I would in a full ROM squat. And online it said that the use of the adductor is increased by wide foot placement; this was a possibility as I don't really remember checking foot position.
