heavy lifting often will strain the groin muscle
try to ice it with bags of ice in zip lock bags wrapped in a towel
heating pads can help as well.
when it feels better, try some gentle groin stretching exercises
and then work on strengthening with hip flexor exercises and deep squats
you may benefit from seeing a physical therapist to help you with these exercises.
