    White hot pain (more of a "sensation") while squatting

    I say more of a sensation because it doesn't really hurt, it just gets all...hot

    It's in my right hip flexor. I feel it only in the parallel to below-parallel portion of the lift, same thing going up and down. I did 3 sets and I only felt it on my last set (heaviest), and even there I didn't feel it on the first rep, my second and third I did and then I called it quits for fear of shanking myself.

    This happened to me a few months ago when I was squatting but it went away by my next session. I'm hoping for the same this time, still, I have some questions.

    1) Should I just squat through it? It doesn't bother me, really, I'm just afraid it might be foreshadowing injury
    2) What would you assume is the cause of this? Bad form, inflexibility (should I do some stretches beforehand?)

    Thanks

    Pinched nerve in your hip? Maybe see a massage therapist and or chiro to get it worked out. Probably be 100% better afterwards.

    Or maybe I'm all wrong, but I ran into that after dislocating a hip playing soccer and a chiro got me straightened out quick..

    If it was a pinched nerve it would probably hurt, like, consistantly, right?

    The only time I feel pain is at the bottom (past parallel) of a heavy Squat.

    You could have a nerve impingement. I'm sure a good massage therapist could help you out. Maybe happy ending also???

    No, I had a pinched nerve in my neck and it only hurt at certain points in my ROM.

    I just saw a chiropractor and it got a lot better.

    One thing that makes me think that it is not a pinched nerve is the fact that it doesn't hurt. When I pinched mine I would look to the left and it would hurt pretty bad. I don't know if that was just me, but I'm just saying what happened with me.

    Good luck with your hip. (maybe its related to sex? You should cease all sexual activities. )

    Do you mind if this goes in my signature?

    Quite possibly the worst advice. Ever.

    Having had a pinched nerve before (in my neck; not exactly the same but whatever) I really don't think that's what it is.

    I'm leaning towards it being the result of a bad warmup. I'll just hope it goes away next week and it probably will.

    I had the exact same thing.

    Massage and rest.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
