    Finally stopped being lazy and saw a hip specialist about the groin/hip flexor pain I have been experiencing for a few months. Diagnosis is a slight tear in the labrum around the hip bone. Doesnt appear to require surgery. Doctor recommended PT for six weeks + anti-inflammatory. Suggested that I stop squatting and DL'ing but do a lot of single leg exercises to strengthen the hip. I am cautiously optimistic that if I really dedicate myself to the PT, I can ultimately come out ahead on my lifts. PT is a lot of stretching, hip raises and side extensions on machines, one leg non-weighted squats and leg press where you press with both legs and lower slowly with one.

    Probably switch to low reps.

    What was the pain like initially? I think I may have something similar

    Low reps across the board? Right now my reps never go above 5 with 5/3/1 on my main lift. Accesory lifts are in the 8-10 range.

    First experienced the pain on a set of squats - had not really warmed - felt like a shooting soreness in my groin when I would go down into the hole. Walking was actually pretty tough for the first few days. Over time, it actually became more of a hip flexor issue, less of a groin problem. I feel it in the middle of the leg slightly below the pelvic bone. Worst pain is any movement that compresses the leg into my chest/stomach like if I was lying down and someone took my leg and forced it back towards my chest.

    ahh i see.

    Mine started in my groin from doing double racked kb front squats, but now I feel it mostly in my right oblique. I should probably make an appointment.

    Receptionist a physio's office: "You haven't been here since october...is this for the same injury"

    Me: "No, I'm just remarkably good at hurting myself"

    hmm boxed squats really highlighted how weak my abdominals are.

    For the next month just going to OHS and no BS/FS?

    How so? I never get ab DOMS after bs/fs, but when I did OHS last week I felt it for a couple days after.

    OHS isn't gonna really put much stress on your posterior chain or legs.

    seconded.

    OHS is great for your abs but just doing that at the expense of dropping all other lower body work isn't great.
