    I'm currently feeling some pain in my right hip flexor and it happens when I am squatting. Is this common? I get the pain even when I am squatting real light weight and the pain becomes less noticeable when I get into my working sets. I also do leg extensions, lying leg curls, and leg presses. Are any of those exercises known to cause the pain? Any advice would be appreciated. :)

    Does it happen as your squatting, or afterwards?

    Just had this happen to my right hip flexor as well last squat day but it was bothering me after I was done squatting. Then as I was walking, bringing my right leg forward to step ahead of my left aggravated it.

    Happens after I'm done squatting. After I finish a set I try to stretch, but it seems like nothing I do is really stretching the area out.

    I get the same pain, hurts after my first couple of sets. Goes away after a while after I'm done squatting. Its more irritating than anything, only affects my squat workouts :hs:
