I did squats and now the muscle next( tensor fasciae latae) to my hip is really sore and tender. It din't break or nuthin' but what I want to know is how to prevent this from happening again?
Thanks!

keep squatting. Your muscles should adapt as long as you're doing it right and you have no underlying issue/injury.

I hope you don't mean keep squatting today!:lol:

I'm just wondering if there's a stretch I should be doing.

Thanks for your reply!

Lie on your back and stick the bad leg up to 90 degrees. Then let it fall across your body towards the floor. That should hit the TFL/ITB pretty well. There are other stretches as well, but that should give you a start.

The foam roller is still the king of self-tx in that area IMO.
