    I have started squatting heavier recently as my herniated disc is no longer causing much pain. Yesterday however, I felt for the first time a burning sensation above my groin when I was at the bottom of my squat. I had a belt on at one point, and took it off at another, both caused the sensation.

    A buddy mention herniation in the front, is this possible, and why the burning?

    Dude :eek3: I've gotten the same sensation while deadlifting or squatting heavy :eek3:

    Its like the between my groin and my thigh

    I still don't know what causes it, but whenever it happens I take some load off or just stop. :eek3: Hasn't happened in a while though

    :eek3: I just got that yesterday for the first time, I can still feel it. Really weird.

    I had pain in my lower abdominals doing squats a few days before that, friend said it could be a hernia, I stopped.

    i doubt it is a hernia, but go get checked out by a doctor just in case.

    quoted to troof... doubtful that its a hernia, but thats the region and continuing to lift with a hernia is bad news

    I pulled my groin (area between thigh and pelvis) squatting heavy. I keep agitating it, so I have to take a break off.

    I used to get pain in that area as well when I first started squatting.

    I've worked on my form though and it has gone away.

    i get this sometimes, im not sure if its the cause of it, but usually ill pull my pants/shorts down below my waist and my underwear a little above. This way the band of the pants or underwear doesnt get in the way of where the body bends which i think could be the cause of the burning.

    I got it too.... It might sound odd... But it might be your skin pinching, or getting pinched by boxers or shorts... Its like a really hot pain... few inches long for me usually...

    Interesting, I thought it could be this.. When I have the belt on it seems to be hightened pain too. I will play with this idea.
