    I started working out about a month ago and have squats as part of my leg routine. But each time, I have some pain on the inside of my thigh near the groin (adductor muscles?) as soon as I push with my legs back to starting position. I'm barely squatting any weight at all, like 95-105 lbs.

    Am I possibly doing something wrong with my form (I can't take video of it currently) or should I see my doctor about this?

    I do general leg stretching and a warm up set but I'll have to try stretching that area more. My leg day is today.

    Try extending your warm up time to 15 minutes. Do some walking for a few minutes, then work up to a jog for a few minutes to get a slight sweat. Then body weight squats and stretching.
