    I get it with heavy squats at times. Stretch out and do some hip and thigh abduction exercises :-)

    i'm a huge fan of stretching, kinda lose sight of it when i'm not involved in cardio activities (tennis, sprints, etc) during off-season.
    got a couple different balms i use..this area calls for some non-mentholated mineral balm (from Jason).

    uggh. news is not good fellas..groin is just wrecked.
    today i look as if i really DO need a walker or a wheelchair.
    not that it's a negative on Achilles or anything, but i haven't noticed any analgesic effects for this boo-boo.
    what a weird injury.

    I hear ya man Achilles works great but no product is going to completely make you safe against injuries in this game. I have done the same thing and it took me out of squatting for a while but a few things helped me to recover quickly once I started them:

    As Airborne said: Stretching. Stretch that area out three times a day. Work on mobility with things such as hip swings and other exercises to loosen them up

    Deep Tissue Massages: The important thing to understand is that the groin is not the only problem. Plenty of other muscles are most likely tight and these are causing and imbalance in your groin muscles causing them to tighten and overload. Deep tissue massages with release all of the other muscles so that your groin may function properly again and free up.

    Foam Roller: Same concept of Deep Tissues. Releases key trigger points. Do these twice a day and before leg workouts

    Avoid any wide stance squats or deep lunges until you increase your mobility and groin pain goes away.

    Also, Careful with the balm. The groin is very close to your 2 best friends and the balm can light them on fire! Unfortunately, I know from experience

    appreciate that my friend, good advice there.
    and i do have to mention that i am a huge fan of deep tissue massage - thing is i lost my built-in masseuse this year, so ima have to adapt.

    as for the knowing from experience - been there done that my man.
    that's why i use this non-mentholated stuff. the mentholated, it doesn't matter how careful you are, you are gonna be very uncomfortable down there for awhile (yikes. srs.)

    long time indeed.
    i see SNS just lets anyone rep for them....




    in other news:
    feeling slightly better today, a little more ROM but still paralyzing pain when it gets moved the wrong way..
    ima bout to attempt some back/arms here, don't worry i'll gingerly avoid flaring the groin (i hope).

    end summary of Achilles experience should be up this w/e.

    after feeling very ruff still this morning rising, i've made huge progress as the day goes on..mobility is coming back, i can stride normally now.
    i won't be sprinting anytime soon, but improvement has been lightning fast, out of the blue..

    You? Manly? :yeahright

    In all seriousness, good **** man! Glad to hear your groin is starting to feel a bit better. They really are some of the most obnoxious and painful injuries to have.

    FINAL SUMMATION:
    Achilles is a revelation in the power of herbs..this stuff is on the money.
    notable things to mention: worked almost immediately, and rapidly progressive from there..analgesic effect was very nice..first week or two in, i had this nice sense of calm and 'peace' if you will - i just felt good. this was a nice side effect!
    very impressive was the fact Achilles went to work on my long-standing shoulder issues (tho minor), increasing ROM and easing pain that i thought was just 'normal' wear & tear. perhaps most impressively (or skeptics may say because of this) - i used cissus stand-alone for almost a month shortly prior to starting this log. there was little to no improvement on ROM/pain (tho it did help heal some elbow issues i was having), yet within a week i was getting relief with Achilles.
    i think this is some potent blend of herbal magic, for sure.
    huge fan guys, great product, and yes - i did purchase another bottle to run.

    thanks again for giving me the opportunity AL, it was an awesome ride.

    Awesome review. How would you compare it to other joint supps you have tried? Always on the look out for anything that provides relief.

    prior to this, i had the most success with cissus q.
    between straight cq and Achilles - there is no comparison, truly.
    Achilles simply provided a great range of addtl effects, and bottom line eased the joint issues.
