Do you feel a pinch in the front of your hip when you squat? Feel like there is something obstructing you in your hip joint that is inhibiting you from being able to pull your knee to your chest? You might have what’s called a femoroacetabular impingement. Normal hip flexor stretching WILL NOT alleviate the issue. The most effective method to solve this issue is to do a band lateral distracted hip mobilization. The bottom position of your squat will open significantly and be much more comfortable.  Your lower back will thank you!
