    Sharp pain in lower abs with squats and DL


    Whenever I'm warming up for squats and recently deadlifts, I notice a sharp pain during the lift at the very bottom of my abs, on the right side. I'm say it's centralized about 3 or 4 inches below the belly button and another 3 or 4 inches over. Did I tear a muscle and not realize it? If I warm up properly the pain usually goes away by the work sets...

    Odd. Worst case, could be a hernia starting.

    wow, well I'm glad I have this board. I guess I'll stop those exercises until I get it looked at. I guess I'll have to settle for leg extensions till then

    Even then be careful. IF it is a hernia(not to scare you because we really don't know) you could tear it further with any sort of pressure exerted on the abdominal wall. If it's still hurting I'd get it checked out before working out again.

    Get it checked asap. You will need surgery to fix, if its a hernia, but the surgery is a pretty quick heal.

    I had this same thing happen to me while on m1t, turned out it was just a spasmatic muscle. Doctor had me take a few days off of workout with muscle relaxers and it cleared right up. If it's a hernia, and that's a possible location for one (although guys are more likely to get one in the pelvic region) it could be a serious matter; I'd get it checked out for sure.

    I'd see a doc.

    But if you aren't going to I would play it safe and rest, then do some ab specific training/stretches to try and strengthen things up a bit.

    Well there's no bulge and it doesn't hurt normally or even picking heavy stuff up etc, only on those two exercises. But I will have it checked.

    Thanks for the advice all!

    here's an easy, preliminary exam for inguinal hernia. put your finger tips in the area of pain below your belly button on the right side. now, take a deep breath and hold while bearing down hard(like taking a ****). feel for a bulge in that area and for pain. if you have either, it's positive for inguinal hernia. diagnostic ultrasonography will be the next step to positively identify a inguinal hernia as opposed to just a muscular strain.

    Yes, hernia's are hereditary - well, not the hernia itself, but being prone to them is.

    I've had 2 hernias. My first as a 2 year old kid, and my second just a few years ago. I hope it's not that, as surgery is the only option.
