Default Pain from Squats... Bad form?

I am getting extremely bad pain when doing my squats. RIght in the joints on my hips. I haven't had it happen before, except maybe some slight pain last week, but today when I did it I couldn't even finish my first set.

Could it be because I'm doing too much for me to handle? Or is it most likely bad form? I can't post a video yet and I will when I get the chance, but as for now maybe someone can give me some advice as to what I MIGHT be doing wrong.

Well I will be honest. I don't do stretches after every workout. As for ass to grass.... I'm going down as far as I can. I'm doing squats 3 times a week. Following the novice barbell training guide I came across on these forums. I started it about .... 3 weeks ago? Started on the low end to make sure I got my form right and went up 15 lbs a week. This week I only went up 5 lbs because of the slight pain I felt last week so I'm only lifting 135.

ok im glad u took the time out to read the huge fucking thread i stole

seirosuly,

1.) please get a video if u can

2.) ass to grass means u go past parallel where ur hams almost touch ur calves. i hope u r doing that.

3.) IMO u r getting the pain coz ur not doing ur stretches. Eric3237 has a bunch of excellent stretching articles and i encourage u to pm the big guy because although u have them, its not my place to distribute them.

so, get the articles, do the stretching and we'll see how it goes. if im correct, ur pain will be eliminated soon

best of luck

The hip and groin are really common overuse areas in the squat.

I'd say if the pain is so bad you couldn't even finish the first set you need to take a week off of it. You can begin stretching the area in a few days. Meanwhile identify any from problems, etc.

When your return you'll want to cycle back some to give it a chance to strengthen. You said you started on the low end then went up 15 pounds. Could be 15 pounds a week. You mean 5 pounds each workout? This is a workout to workout thing so it would make more sense to speak of it that way, btw.

Besides proper stretching are you warming up properly? Not warming up or a bad warmup is the most likely thing to cause this in a beginner.

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

^^ I was going to mention something about the warm-up but Eric beat me to it . I get some discomfort in the hip flexor region if I don't warmup properly, without seeing a video of your form I would say that you should look at that aspect.
