I’m having a recurring problem with my left adductor, particularly on squats. It doesn’t feel injured necessarily, but it is quite sore and tight each time I squat (even with a week recovery in between sessions, pvc pipe rolling, etc.)
It has gotten to the point that it is hard to drive my knees out when I come out of the hole on squats – my legs seem like they want to collapse inward to avoid the twinge I get if I force my knees to stay out.
Any tips on rehab for this? As I mentioned, I’m rolling it as best I can and I’m doing mobility work before my lower body sessions. The two additional thoughts I had were possibly stretching it before I squat and/or using the adductor machine before squatting to warm it up. I’m a competitive powerlifter, so not squatting isn’t an option and I don’t want to use briefs to cover up the problem.
