Hip pain and squatting

Hey guys, I've been doing alot of squatting lately, and my hips have been hurting a lot! It seems like it is the hip flexor. intense pain while im in the hole. I feel like this is a sign of sloppy form (which im working to correct). But what can i do to help alleviate this, or to fix it? ie stretching, rolling, ...? -Thanks

Re: Hip pain and squatting

Had the same thing a few months ago in the front of my left hip. Didn't hurt for anything but coming out of the hole. I massaged the **** out of my inner thighs, hip flexors, etc. and I squatted to a box for a couple weeks. Also, I bought lifting shoes (vs athletics). Needless to say, my squat is at 320x5 now. (it was 270x5 before)

Moral of the story: take care of yourself, do a thorough warmup and GET lifting shoes!

Re: Hip pain and squatting

Thanks man! i just got my addidas power lift trainers about a week ago. They helped a little, been grinding a lacrosse ball into my hip, seems to help a bit, seeing a PT tomorrow.

Yeah, I'd def recommend doing this to see if it works as a first measure.

But since you're seeing a PT that should help solve things.
