    I went into the gym today hoping to have a good leg day, after not going Mon or Tues due to birthday/gf's tonsils being taken out, etc. After my 3rd set of squats, I felt a funny sensation right where my quad meets my hamstring on the inside of my right leg.

    Basically, I strained something in that area (groin maybe?). I can walk 90% fine, but I'm favoring because of the strain/tightness in the injured area. What should I do immediately, and how long should I take off from doing legs? I was thinking to not work them until next Tuesday, which the first leg day of next week.

    Ice is great, I'd ice it for the next several days, with 20mins intervals allowing for a few minutes break.

    Be glad you didn't pull/strain it further, as I was stupid enough to do when doing HIIT sprints... I was MIA for almost a half year
