    Thigh pain after squatting

    Hi guys,

    I was squatting last Saturday, and the inside of the upper thigh (Adductor Longus) of my right leg was hurting quite a bit - to the extent that I had a bit of a limp for a few days when walking.
    I took a week off gym, and went again tonight, however the same pain occurred again. The other guys around the gym said that my squatting form was good, so I don't understand what is causing the pain.

    I squat with a semi wide stance (feet around shoulder width or a bit narrower). Feet at a 30 degree angle outwards, knees slightly outwards. Perhaps this is what is causing the pain?

    Please help as I love my squats!

    I can't post a picture of where the adductor longus is as I don't have enough posts on this site to link images..

    You've answered your own question right here.

    Research squating stance and work on improving and getting stronger.

    Also, hows your warmups? Hit the bike for 5, then do some leg presses and maybe don't go so heavy but focus on form
    I rep back - but I could have you on recharge

    If you are new to squats, recently changed stance or have changed your program it may just be a bad case of DOMS. A wider stance (low bar/ powerlifter squat) will actually hit the adductors pretty hard. If it is DOMS, Ice packs/baths and more squats should help. Doing the exercise that caused DOMS in the first place will actually help the issue.

    You would have to be much more specific on exactly WHAT you mean by hurt. Is this pain or soreness. Stabbing or an ache, etc etc.

    What are DOMS?

    It doesn't hurt too much while doing squats, but I get a stabbing pain after every set. It feels ok today actually, but I'm going to go again tomorrow and see how it feels.

    DOMS = Delayed Onset Muslce Soreness - meaning that your feel soreness 24hrs and after following a workout. Train on Monday night, and don't feel any pain until Tues evening/Wed etc. Well for me its like that....

    can you elaborate on what you mean? I always thought 30 degree toes out with pushing knees along that same line as your toes was right.... :/ confused
