I have a question about squats guys. I started doing squats like a month ago. I never had a problem with it until recently. I had a good session of squats on Monday. I did 7 sets of 5 reps with A 45 plate and a 20 on each side. After I went home, I could feel pain in both of my groins. I had my girfriend give me a massage, and it helped. Wednesday approached (Yesterday) and it was squats day. My groin hurt a little from the Monday session, so I said, "who cares", and after my third set of squats, my groins were burning and in pain to the point were I couldn't bend right. Being stubborn (I know, I should know when to stop), I continued with the squats and by the 5th set, my whole lower back was in pain, felt it like PUMPED, and I couldn't really do anything after that feeling. It really, really hurt so I just threw myself on the floor, laying down for a few minutes and it helped. I got really scared to the point that I wanted to cry becuase of the pain, being scared, and all.
Any suggestion what could have happened? Did the groin pain have anything to do with it? I think it was BAD FORM...
Today I woke up with no back pain when standing, but when I try to bend to do thing around the office, it hurts and I can't get straight easily. I massaged the groin area yesterday again and it helped a lot. I can't feel it at the moment.
Should I stop squatting for the moment? Should I start wearing a belt when squatting? What causes the groin pain?
