Ok, so I’ve injured my groin while squatting, so I’m taking a break from squats, deadlifts, and lunges until it heals…it might be a couple of weeks. I watched the so you think you can squat videos and I’ll take some videos of my squat and post to check if my form is good.
What are my options for working my legs? I did RDLs and good mornings today. The RDLs felt good (no use of the groin involved), but the good mornings gave me some back tightness. How can I do the good morning safely? Or alternatively, given that I do have chronic back tightness (If I do back extensions I’ll be in severe pain) perhaps this is not a good exercise for me.
I tried doing natural glute ham raises today, but I can’t even do one. I guess I’ll have to resort to RDLs and machines to work my legs? (I generally don’t like using the machines, but I might have to in this case). I abhore step-ups, but I guess that’s an option too.
There’s no need to respond to this post with the usual ‘use a foam roll’ Yes, I use a foam roll and an ABS pipe, but my groin is sensitive right now and just needs to heal on its own. Additionally, foam rolling doesn’t just make chronic back problems go away.
