Serious question /fit/:

I've been lifting for slightly over a month now, and I started out doing squats parallel. 2 weeks ago, I started going ATG with my squats, but these are bothering the fuck out of my hip, so much I might have injured myself?

Now when I walk, I can feel a "pop" coming from my left hip, like my femur isn't inside of the socket or is moving around. It's not audible but if I put my hand over the left side of my hip, I can feel it pop. It kinda hurts and it's making me worried. I don't want to stop going ATG with my squats, but holy fuck this is bothering me. Do I need to see a doctor because I have hip dysplasia or is it something less serious? Or is it because my hip adductors are weak? Has anyone experienced this, and if so, any advice for a dude with who's trying to go ATG but is worried because his left hip is getting wrecked?

Advise me /fit/, pls. If you want to know, my current back squat is 145 lbs (~65 kg).

Have you tried stretching?
Like, everything a lot?

high bar or low bar?
Low bar ATG is improbable for most humans. Do you feel grinding in your left hip?
>>
Are your knees caving in or shooting out when you go ATG?
>>
>>35564160
I stretch but I'm not sure if I'm hitting the right area. I'm not addressing the hip adductors specifically. Are there any stretches you would recommend or do yourself before you squat?
>>
>>35564176
Always high bar, have yet to try low bar because it looks way more difficult.

>>35564198
They don't cave in, I try to keep them directly above my feet. I guess in some cases they may extend beyond the foot as in outside of my foot. Is this bad form?
>>
>>35564176
Oh and no, not grinding. Popping with pain, but only after the pop occurs.
>>
>>35564176
Why is low bar atg improbable?
>>
>Turning this into a serious questions thread

I often feel both my shoulders pop out of place when doing incline dumbell press and shooting pain. Is it too much weight? Or what, because I'm relatively new.

Another is lower back pain even after doing arms/chest days?

baka senpai
i had similar symptoms to you, but only when doing hipflexor exercises. it went away after stretching my hamstrings and hip flexors everyday for a week
>>
>>35565061
if your shoulders hurt from incline dumbell or flat bench press its because you ither have bad form or shit mobility. i hat this problem too, worked on both, now im good
>>
>>35564137
SMR with a lacrosse ball or softball on glute minor, glute major, hip flexor and quads
>>
>>35564199
Spiderman lunges, pigeon poses, just stretch in general fella.

Your high school fototball coach would say it is bad. It is not. The reason for that meme is so we don't get people squatting without their hips out far enough
>>
Lol at falling for the ATG squat meme. Silly anon, everyone knows ATG squats fuck you up. Just go parallel or just below
