    Squats newbie

    Hi,

    I was doing squats with a barbell a few weeks ago and I got sore afterwards in the inside of my thighs almost up in the groin. Now I'm wondering if its because I got bad form or that I'm not conditioned properly.
    I have my feet a bit wider than shoulder width and toes pointing a bit outwards and straight back. I thought squats would hit the back thigh and butt.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks
    /J

    Squats hit every part of the leg.
    Make sure your knees are NOT pointing IN when you go down or push up.
    Is this the first time it has happened?

    Yeah, squats hit the whole leg. The wider your stance is, the more they hit the groin area. If you are just sore, it's probably because the muscles aren't used to this, - it sounds like you have just started strength training so this is likely IMO.
    Straight punches make you go blind. More damage is done to a criminals nervous system when they are struck. Strikes that make you stronger. All this and more systema douchebaggery:

    Thanks for the reply.

    Well, actually it happened a few times during the last months. I thought that it was that I was not conditioned but after it happened more times I was beginning to think that my form was bad. I had plenty rest between my sessions but I might have had too much weight on the bar. :)

    When you say inward, do you mean that the knees are inside of the feet or are bending inwards (not sure if my point gets through in that sentence, hopefully you know what I mean)?

    I mean that you need to see if you knees are buckling in ( too much weight and bad form).
    IF your stance is just wider than shoulder width, I don't think its because its too wide.

    Isn't that a sumo squat and aren't there issues with doing those?

    Sumo squat is much wider than should width.
    A typical "power squat" has your feet wider than shoulder, but a sumo squat is basically a horse stance.

    Sumo would be much wider than shoulder width. A bit wider than shoulder is just a conventional squat stance.

    I think he's right about not being conditioned. One great thing about squats is that they can be somewhat diagnostic. Squatting will definitely reveal weaknesses or muscular imbalances.

    Hi all,

    since no one has commented my form too much I'll take your advise and condition my lower body and legs. I'll continue doing squats but with lower weigths for a while.

    Thanks
