I was deadlifting last night and when i was finished i felt a kind of sharp pain in my lower abdomen above the pubic region to the right. nothing seriously bothersome but i was curious if anyones felt something similar? thanks
More than likely a hernia. I have the same thing. I was recently at the doctors and he confirmed it. It's small and as long as everything stays in no surgery. Sometimes it's a pain in the ass though. Anybody have an ideas on how to deal with it or heal it?
I have a high pain tolerance so it doesn't really hurt. I can feel it bulge and a little discomfort. On heavy lifts it can get bad enough to grab it after a lift. Most heavy leg lifts I will feel it. Deads, squats and leg press. It has been holding me back on leg workouts. The doctors solution was don't lift anything over 60 pounds. I'm well past that point.Originally Posted by jwayne
That's a tough call. I'm self employed in construction and put in the same day as my employees. I'm not one of those bosses that pass the physical work to somebody else. As for the gym I have been slowly moving forward. I backed off how hard I was pushing myself and that has helped. I dropped some weight off leg press as well. One plus is having this reminds you to keep your core tight. If I get sloppy it let's you know in a hurry. Any thoughts on using a belt? Would there be any advantage to it? I figure I'm going to keep at it and try to use some kind of common sense. If I have a day where it's bothering me I have no problem doing a light workout. I could always try that cross fit thing for the summer. Lol I don't think soOriginally Posted by fadi
