Hey guys i've been having serious hip pain in my squatting lately :( it will build up when i start to warm up and will go away after i just force myself to through it and add weight( stupid well i am
Ill explain a bit. So when i take a empty bar it seems my right side is going WAY deeper than left side and the pain is in right front of hip and side. After i started experiencing disturbing amounts of this pain i started adding Alot more different stretches but there seems to be only minor/momentary pain relief... Foam rolling also seems to have similar effect i was a bit disappointed :( One weird one also is that when i stretch my right side hip everything seems "loose" i have to go deeper than with my healthy left side
sign of weakness? But in what ? This problem is giving me a headache...
For example hip flexor stretch my problematic right side goes so much further than my left.
So did i understand correctly i should avoid gluteus maximus stretch and what else? Which ones should i avoid and which ones should i focus? Also i thought adduction(pushing legs together) was one i need to strengthen but i guess i didnt know what i was doing... So i should start abductions (pushing legs away from each other) and forget adduction?
My squat is about 5-10cm wider than shoulders and going more narrower will make my back bend way before paraller. Trying to stretch everything to go deeper but im just so stiff naturally...
Oh and btw just lifting my right leg up causes slight pain in hip and more when i move it further away from other leg. Deadlifting causes no pain what so ever...
Im way over my head in this hip problem so if anyone could hammer it to my head what i need to do
Thanks in advance!
