    well i was thinking stairs or stairmaster. maybe jump roping

    or do isolation work, which is better than nothing. you can do you calfs, quads, hams without bending at the hip too much.

    focus on upperbody and give your hips a chance to heal? Maybe hire a physical therapist for some leg exercies or just go swimming.

    Best thing to do would be to go to a Physical Therapist and find out what exactly is wrong and how to fix it.

    I will probably be ok in a couple of weeks or in a month, just wanna keep up the training during this period. So, I guess I do some isolation if there isnt any good exercise I can do. (ive been searchign the exrx to come up with some exercises )
    Im able to keep up the dl though.

    Nope. Not IN the lower abs, in the HOLLOW between the thigh and abs, (maybe I used the wrong word earlier) where all muscles connect. in the region of the pectineus, iliopsoas and adductors. Dont know which muscle specific.
