    I was doing rear delt flies yesterday and all hell broke loose. One isolated abdominal muscle was super tense, poking out about .5", with the rest at rest. The pain was fairly agonizing. It was initially sore, and still doesn't feel right, but its not painful.

    Any ideas on what it is?

    I should probably stay out of the gym for a few days right...even though that would make me a pussy who lacks stongminded?

    if pain occurs and grows, or the thing sticks out more and more, congrats you has hernia

    go to a free clinic

    Ive had that before doing deadlifts followed by ab work which triggered that staggering pain. But yeah, just one abdominal muscle was stick out and it felt fucking weird when I touched it.

    so it was super tense and really painful? id say you cramped up bro. i get cramps up my leg during sleep occasionally, best thing to do is walk up and down a hallway or around your room until it goes back to normal. obviously with an ab you cant walk on it, so i would twist your body around a bit to stretch it back out. and apparently magnesium helps with cramps too

    EDIT: also i would definately NOT stay out of the gym, its good to keep it active after a cramp. it probably doesnt feel right for you still because you didnt stretch it out when it happened
