Sorry the video is really poor. Mine own camera is broken, so used friends mobile. Best I can do for now.
So I have a pain in the hips from doing front squat. It feels like it's right in the joint there, around the hip flexors. It happens at all weighted front squats, though obviously the heavier I go the worse it gets. It's really stopped me from training, and hurts when I walk after I train, so it's very important to fix.
I know I need weightlifting shoes (and a proper floor, too LOL). I'll get them. But I don't know if that's what actually causes the pain. I tried front squating in runners with a quite high heel and it hurt all the same - though maybe it was only hurting because I had ALREADY had the injury. I don't know.
The pain is not just regular muscle soreness in the hip flexors, either. I've been doing martial arts for years, so I know what the sweet pain of a good work out feels like. This is more like sharp shin splints in my hip joints rather than anything else.
The pain is not from back squats but I only feel them in front squats. I know this because I don't do back squats. The pain IS from what you see in the vid.
I've only learned to do front squats in the last few months. Though I started at a lower weight to practice technique. It was not until I started doing over 60 kilo regularly that it really started to become a problem.
I've been searching the net for answers, but thus far found nothing I'm certain is sound. Most the info I've found regards backsquats, which are quite different, so I don't know if the info is relative, despite people explaining the same sorts of pain.
Please tell me if you can figure what might actually be causing the pain and how to fix it. Thank you.
