    I think itís a groin injury. I injured after coming back from COVID layoff a year ago. Have restarted program 3 times now and continues to bother me whenever I work up to the 250lb weight levels (3x5 PR = 350lbs).

    Pain: All on right leg/hip. Adductor magnus, lower right ass, and then outside of leg. If really worked up my right knee can ache when sitting for a long time. Hip flexors always feel tight.

    Most recently got up to 265 and injured again. Backed off weight to 185 and worked my way up. Got up to 225 in this video and itís really hurt now. Anything involving hammys and groin pretty painful.

    Problem is I canít see what Iím doing wrong.

    This isnít my max but here me doing 335 a year ago.

    Looks like your ass is sliding to the right on the way up, but I can't tell for sure from this video angle.

    I think you are right as I have felt that. I have filmed many times trying to see it but I havenít had any luck (or my eyes just canít catch it).

    If it is this and itís a result of my ďdriftingĒ to the right side on the ascent (and I assume loading that leg more), is there a cue to fix asymmetries like this? Iíll be going back to the blue book since Iím going to have to back off for a bit.

    And on the injury front I assume Starr protocol? This has been nagging on and off now for awhile but today I fucked it up worse than before. Can squat gingerly if toes not pointed so I imagine will be able to squat light here in a day or two and just gradually move the toes out.

    Thanks for reading/watching. This shit is getting fucking old (and making me feel old).

    The fix is to have your leg length symmetry checked, fix that, and then move your ass the opposite direction when you squat until it becomes straight.

    But I'll tell you what gets old: you idiots continually trying to use the Starr Protocol when it does not apply. I have talked about this enough that you should know by now. Just have fun with your training.
