Good thing you're always there to smack some common sense into me. I read your PM, and I think I explained wrong the first time. It's definitely not near the hip, it's in the groin region. Has to be the adductor. I was going to go to the doctor today, but the more I thought about it, and the more I read, there doesn't seem to be anything he can do for it. So I'm going to take some naproxen and hold off on the squats for a week or two and see if it feels better. Problem is, I know that I need to fix this before I can get back into squatting, so I have to do something to strengthen those adductor muscles once the inflammation goes away. I'd like to continue working out though, so tomorrow I'm going to skip the squat, but try the bench and deadlift. I don't think the dead bothered it on Monday, so if I can continue to do that, then I'm thinking maybe we can modify my program a little. Maybe someone on here wouldn't mind throwing his $.02 into it? I'll have more info after tomorrows workout, but I'd hate to have to completely skip lower body for a few weeks while this heals up. How ironic when you think about it. I was upset because I wasn't squatting as much as I wanted to, but once I got there it turned out to be too much too soon. Sometimes you just can't win.

Adductors don't get a lot of blood supply. Once it has rested for a few days get to rubbing down the area (no jokes) and massaging it to help get the blood flowing. Don't try to wrap it up. It won't do any good, I don't think even now and once the initial healing has taken place you definitely don't want to do anything to restrict blood flow to that area. Groin strains are notoriously hard to heal. Trust me I know. But mine was severe and it sounds like yours is pretty minor.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Well after taking a month off, I'm back in the game. I didn't plan on taking this long off, but due to some circumstances and a bit of laziness, that's how it turned out. Anyway, I spent this week slowly breaking back into the program, not wanting to overextend myself too quickly. So far it seems like the groin is healed up. Unfortunately, I feel (and look) like I lost a lot of upper body size. However I know exactly where it all went...GUT I'm debating going right back into my previous workout, or spending a week or two trying to cut by bf% down a bit. Either way, I have 1 more warmup tomorrow and then I officially start back up on Monday. Can't wait. I feel so terrible since stopping. :(
