    this has been going on for awhile now. it's very on and off.

    when i do front squats i'll feel pain in the groin area (only on the right side). itll happen at the very bottom of the rep and again at the very top of the rep. like i said, it's very on and off. would alot of stretching help this?

    warning: i'm skinnyfat and not a PLer, don't take my advice



    stretching when it hurts is a bad idea, if it only hurts during the lift then it should be ok to stretch afterwards so long as it feels normal. If not then don't stretch. Taking a little time off from the exercises that cause this pain would be a good idea too. It may be on and off because it's never getting enough time to heal.

    Also you might pay attention to your form if it's only happening on your right side. Maybe your leg is going inward a little bit, or outward, and it's causing more strain on the area.

    Avoid the exercises that aggravate it, and don't stretch it. Work on glute activation (glute bridges, birddogs) and strengthening (single leg exercises). Foam roll the quads, ITB, hip flexors, piriformis, adductors and TFL. Also make sure that you're consciously squeezing your glutes on all exercises like RDL's, deadlifts, squats, etc.
