I do some bodyweight squats at varying stance widths everyday before bed if that counts as groin stretching? Yes I have a hard time getting into the bottom position.

sumo is a bit better, however when the weights get heavier, my low back does most of the work. i think relatively long femurs in proportion to my other joints makes it so my hips are too far back in the correct starting position.
I have decent leverages for conventional, pretty long legs but also long arms.
Will edit post and add video when I get home, thanks guys.
the guy deadlifting after the squats in the beginning is me. First time doing heavy deads without straps so thats part of the reason I take so much time in between reps.
