Squat Hip/Joint Pain
Hoping someone reading this can provide some insight.
I'm experiencing a bit of pain around the ball/socket area of my left hip. This happens whether I do BW squats or with weight. I don't think it's a muscle/tendon issue just because when I'm deep in the squat it feels like something is rubbing and protruding forward from my hip. I've hit this depth without much problems before and it's only the movement that brings about the problem. But I notice this pain generally happens after a day of cardio. My cardio consists of LISS like a 40-50 min walk on pavement which might have something to do with it. I always start with warm ups, ~15 minutes with dynamic stretches like leg swings, lunges, squat stretches and BW squats. In between sets I also do BW squats.

Prolly trochanteric bursitis
Rest and anti inflammatories for a week or so, if it's still bothering you - off to the sports medicine doc.
First line of therapy is usually a cortisone injection.
Stretch the crap out of your hip flexors before squatting. I had the same issue for a while, managed to stretch myself out if it though

There's many different stretches that are effective, just google hip flexor stretches.Originally Posted by gokix811
I just get into the bottom position of the squat and alternate putting a leg all the way behind me. I also put one leg on the safety bar of a power rack and go from side to side.

obviously anyone on here without a relevant medical degree ultimately is only going to be able to give you an educated answer based on our own experience and i wouldnt expect much more, research on google then see a doctor when your almost certain what it is

Okay I tried what you suggested, there is no pain or clicking. But I still feel like something is rubbing/protruding forward and down from the hip area and it's very uncomfortable to stay in the squat position once I hit parallel. In order to work around the issue I've been doing lunges and sumo squats with lighter weights. The wide stance of the sumo squats does not irritate my hips during the motion.

Also, look in to adding Super Cissus to your supplement plan. This is what fixed my shoulder problem for me. All natural, fairly inexpensive. Absolutely fantastic joint product.
