very sore hip flexors after a new workout--help?

I tried a new ab workout on Thursday and I must have been cheating with my hip flexors too much because today (two days later) the soreness is incredible. If I describe my workout and my symptoms, could the hive mind try to identify which muscle is sore and suggest ways to stretch it? [more inside]

Bodyweight replacements for standard barbell exercises?

Thanks to Sandy, it'll be a couple of months before I have access to a gym. If I describe my usual barbell routine below the fold, can anyone recommend bodyweight exercises that target approximately the same muscles without any equipment? [more inside]

Exercise-induced pruritus?

Sometimes, right before I start to sweat, I experience a temporary but intense itching sensation, to the point where I'd describe it more as a painful pricking feeling. Does anyone else have or know of this problem? Copious but not excessive information after the jump. [more inside]

progressions up to a tuck front lever?

I'd like to train for a front lever, but I'm too weak to get my hips up even in tuck (back rounded, knees to chin), even if I try to jump into it. What other exercises can I do to develop a tuck front lever? (I do have access to a weight room, and I'm working on straps rather than rings, if that makes any difference.)

it's mostly in the wrist

Please recommend some good exercises for my arms and my grip, mainly so I can cook better with a wok. Here's the main motion. I can do it with a little 10in wok, but I'm just too weak to get that explosive little flick at the end with my new 16in wok, even if I use both hands. It'd also be nice if I could hold it slightly above the burner for 5-10 minutes at a time and swirl it rapidly to stir the food. (In terms of necessary torque, we're talking about maybe 3lbs of pot and definitely no more than 3lbs of food, on a 14in stick.)

Why don't any of these stretches work for me?

StretchingFilter: what am I doing wrong? I don't feel any "pull" from these stretches, or they happen in the wrong places or feel like real pain. [more inside]
