Hi guys, I'm not sure where to post this so I am putting it here.
Just a little background, I have been lifting weights for about 4 years, nothing too serious, just lifting iron.
I recently started doing starting strenth and its been helping a ton.
About a week and a half ago, not sure exactly when, my hips at the crease (hip flexors?) started to hurt a little when I go down. They dont bother me at all when stand or walking around, they only hurt when I go down to around parallel. Its at the crease of the hip, almost a crushing feeling.
I do not want to get injured so I havnt squated/deadlifted in about a week and a half and the pain isnt going away.
I have tried some stretching and it seems to only make it feel worse, not better. I bought a foam roller today to see if this will help.
I dont think my form is the issue, I keep strict form. Bend first at the hips(not the knees), sit back, knees dont go in, sit on the heels and then go back up.
