pain in quad when squatting
googled it and found the same question floating around.


I'm noticing a pain in my upper right quad whenever I do squats. I can do other leg exercises just fine. The pain doesn't just happen while going heavy, just doing body weight squats will cause it. I didn't do warm ups before I started this new routine but I started to do 4 sets of light warm ups for squats when I switched to this routine followed by 3 heavy sets of 6 reps. I've had my form checked by a personal trainer and I set up a mirror to check my form constantly so I don't think that's the problem. What could be causing this?
Pretty much sums it up.
when i wrap i dont feel it at all.
Its just been nagging me for a couple of months now.

I thought i was starting to get leg vascularity but i noticed its more of a bruise.saw some stuff on rectus femoris strain but idk.

How long have you had it?

Since you have had the pain ongoing for awhile now, go see a sports medicine doc and have it checked out.

Also, post a vid up of your squatting. Not sure if the trainer who checked your form is good or not.

I've had that bruise since..probably May or so when i was getting ready for my bodybuilding show.

Oh and thats not my quote, when i googled it he seemed to have the same issues.

Just looking for a 'cure' lol

You haven't had any shots in that area of the leg have you?

Just mentioning it because I had a pre-op injection in the quad which caused the same sort of discomfort for a long time, can't recall how many months but I thought it would never end.

Go see a doctor.

I'll try this.
Id hate to spend money for someone to tell my what i already suspect lol.
Besides i dont get insurance at my job, so the minute clinic would be where i would go.
