Doing goblet squats tonight, 53lb kb…

Get to bottom of the squat and feel this semi-stabby pain in the front of my hip. 

Got through the workout (about 25 of those goblet squats) and only felt it one more time and milder. 

Now, yeah, I should have warmed up with the 25 and then the 35, but wow, I did do my warmup/mobility so I wasn’t that worried…

Anyone ever have this?  I seem to recall this happening a several weeks ago, so normally, one incident of being a creaky old man doesn’t bother me…a pattern does…

I’ll work on some quad and flexor stretches till then…

TP

Are you still experiencing this? I’ve been starting to feel the same thing, only on my right side, right above the point that my leg connects. I only feel it when squatting.

Usually the cure for my hip pain is the barbell on a box mob where you put the barbell in the rack at about where you would bench press, then put a 20” box or similar under it and grind your groin on the barbell.  Yah, it’s fun. I think the issue is the adductors get tight and they pull the hip out of position.  You might have to freestyle a little bit to find the tight spots.  As long as I keep up with this, I have no hip pain.

Inertia plays a mighty role in recovery, and an object at rest on a couch can stay there for a long time.

Aiiiiiieee! The dreaded Scrotch MOB WOD!

And my hip pain has kind of gone away.  Now, I’m not sure I know why exactly.  It may have gone away since I haven’t tried any heavy front squats since then, but have been working on mobility, so we’ll see how it goes.

Oh, I just noticed I was a few months late to the party on this one.

It was all newed up, so that’s not a bother.  Sometimes these things lay dormant…

Ok. Is this instant relief? Grinding the bar….. thank god I’ll be doing this at home! smile

If that’s the problem, it has often provided me with instant relief..or at least it instantly improves if it doesn’t entirely resolve.
