yep, definitely have it checked as it may be something more internal. Here's hoping its just a pulled muscle or pinched nerve. Trust me, just because you weren't sore doesn't mean some simple thing won't put you over the edge. I once threw my back out brushing my hair and I've popped a shoulder out reaching for an upper cupboard. Check it out and if its just muscular, you'll just have to ease back in at much lower weight. Core injuries take a while. Good luck!
I am sorry that you are hurting. As the other poster said you may want to get it looked at. Always better to have the doc look at it. You never know if there is something else going on and the "serious" says that you know something is not right (good, listening to your body). IF it is your abs, you use your core in practically everything you do. I wouldn't lift if those stabilizer muscles are hurt. I know it is frustrating, but you need to let them heal. Again it is always best to have a professional look at it.
Leads me to mentioning that if anyone is feeling too much of a pull in the core you may be lifting too heavy and need to scale back on the move. Same goes for me when I am feeling too much of a pull in my back, I know I am doing too much. I didn't listen to my body with the Insanity plyo and it has set me back. There are also some moves I just cannot do and have to modify.
Today I started week 2. I began with push ups & as I went down I had a sharp pain on my lower right side. It hurt enough that I compensated by doing push ups on my knees. It still was sharp each time I lowered. Next I did dumbbell presses on the bench. Sitting up from the bench was insanely painful, to the point on my final set I literally rolled/slithered off the bench to avoid it. I went easy for the rest as any lifting hurt. Later, I sneezed and felt like dying & curling up. Did I rip something? Prior (over my 3 day rest) I didn't even have sore abs!
I am freaking a bit as I don't want to quit working at this and also because it hurts so bad. Now it is dull & achey even at rest. Any ideas, comments,, or advice? Thanks!
