    On the second picture, you see where the hip and leg meet? I am in pain while at the bottom of the lift... Is this normal? It doesn't feel natural at all. I thought I messed up my form, but I redid it, and it is still hurting when I lower down... I really want to squat, what the hell is going on...

    could be a flexability issue.

    Anything I can do? Should I just spend a long time stretching for a few days, then ease myself into it again?

    Yeah, and it feels like I am cutting off circulation to my legs at the bottom of the movement...

    I had a similar issue with pain and I know I had not been keeping up with my flexibility but I approached it by using squat briefs and addressing my flexibility while doing more warm up exercises before heavy squat days.

    that and maybe adjust your stance some what. Play with the direction your toes are pointed.

    Actually.. try this, just for shits and giggles, get 2 5lbs plates, place them under your heals for your squat set. If that helps, do that for a while, then go to 2.5's and soon you'll be down to none agian.

    i had that pain for awhile. it went away when i started sticking my ass out more on the way down

    edit: this was for traditional squats though, not front squats.

    bring your legs a little closer together and point your toes more forward, see if that eliminates the pain. otherwise its probably mobility and try hack squats instead or leg press with your legs lower on the pad
