Electric Squat Sensation when Squatting


Having been very lazy and not really trained for the last two years I have recently come back to training.I have been doing Riptoe Beginner routine to get up o speed.

When I was doing squats this evening (only with 100KG) I started getting this funny sensation in the outside of my left quad as I squatted down. It felt almost like a mini electric shock.

Does anyone know what it might be or be able to suggest possible solutions. I used to get it only when I did front squats so not sure where to go from here. Any advice would be much appreciated.
