last Monday when I was squatting I got a real bad pain in my hip flexor, which hasn't happened before. at lacrosse practice that night it started hurting again when we were doing sprints. Then, Friday night I was at a B-ball game and it was starting to hurt again (in conjunction with some abductor soreness) just sitting there watching.
what appears to be the problem is that I've finally seen the light and started squatting a2g. I was fucking around with it today to try to determine the cause. So i was doing some squats, just bodyweight, and noticed: at a wide stance I couldn't even get down to parallel; at my regular stance (feet a few inches outside of shoulders) I started to feel the pain at parallel; in a narrow stance (feet directly under shoulders) I had no problems.
so my guess would have to be that i'm having some sort of flexibility issue. any help is appreciated.
