Does anyone else have a similar problem: every time I deload, the first week of the following cycle my adductors get insanely sore from squatting and make deadlifting difficult. The next few weeks I don’t have this issue at all, only the first week after a deload.
I have tried various stretches, foam/pvc pipe rolling, myofascial release, nothing helps at all. It’s worse if I do pause squats, and worse if they are high bar. This week I did dead squats (from the pins, for singles) and I’m less sore than I have been before but still sore as hell. I suppose that full body workouts and increased frequency could help somewhat, but they present other problems.
