Pain in Lower Stomach With Squats


#1

Hey guys...
Did squats this morning and noticed some sharp pains in my lower stomach to the right of my belly button near the bottom of the range of motion....
This has happened in the past too and I usually lighten the weight dramatically and go easy for a few weeks and then slowly increase weight again...
I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this before and what they did... I wonder if this is an injury or just poor form....
Any advice/suggestions.....
Thanks for the help.

I ain't no expert by any stretch, but it sounds like a sport hernia, or the beginings of one.
