    anybody heard of it?

    [​IMG]

    i think i have it :noes:

    it's not noticeable unless i'm doing leg lift type excercises. situps/crunches dont bring it out. neither does raising the head. but it looks pretty much like that.

    supposed to be separation of the abs? normally happens in infants and pregnant women? wtf!!!!!!!!!

    i've had it for a few months and it doesnt hurt, it's just mentally annoying. it doesnt belong, i want it gone.

    any thoughts?

    i have a doc appt for next week.

    and i just found this

    Instead, look for exercises that work the transverse muscles. The transverse muscles are deeper within the body, on the right and left sides of the abdomen. By exercising and strengthening the transverse muscles, you will cause them to draw the rectus abdominis (muscles on the front of the abdomen, or "six-pack") closer together.

    what are excercises to work the transverse muscles?
