Because I received a couple of questions regarding this topic I thought I’d point you to a post on reddit where user Zodam shared some advice on how he got rid of the hip flexor pain he got from squatting.
- Strengthen and ACTIVATE glutes
- Fix bar positioning (Rippetoe on Low Bar Position)
- Work on ankle mobility
Pain in adductors? – Is your stance too wide?
It was for me. Had this nagging pain for a couple of weeks. Then I realized that I hadn’t done any side split / straddle stretches for a while. So after doing those after each squat session the pain was gone.
Maybe this will help some of you out.
Let me know your tips in the comments.
