Why can the press and abdominal muscles hurt during exercise?

The muscles of the press are unwell due to two reasons- defects in muscle tissue and the production of lactic acid, which does not have time to disintegrate to carbon dioxide due to lack of oxygen. Lactic acid begins to accumulate in the muscle tissue, causing pain, as soon as the amount of exercise becomes more than usual (at the beginning of sports or a sharp increase in the load on a certain group of muscles).

The second cause of pain is microtrauma or defectssome components of muscle tissue. Usually, this pain in the belly press appears on the morning after training. Do not be afraid of microtraumas of muscle fibers, as the latter are gradually restored and even increase in size - there appear "cubes" of the abdominal press.

Painful sensations appear when the hernia is infringed, as the front loom of the abdomen is weakened, and the increased pressure inside the stomach causes jamming and loss of internal organs. Therefore, in order to avoid the consequences (tissue death), you should immediately seek help from experienced professionals.
