Last week I started back at training after a 2 month layoff due to illness and school.
Somehow I managed to strain my retus abdominus in the lower region near the orign. ( Translation "I hurt my abs between my hip bones"). Initially i just tought it was muscle soreness because i had not done a decent workout in a while but after not being able to do a basic crunch or pushup let alone attemp an L sit without pain after 4 days i went and got it checked out.
Has anyone else every done this,how long will it take to heal.
I was all set to get back to training and this has just flattened me, no bjj, no kickboxing.I tried to bench this morning, didn't realise how much I recruited my abs to do this.

Good athletes use their abs for everything...even sneezing! Soft tissue injuries can take a month or more if severe...take it easy and try to only do active range of motion for a week or so. Slowly add if possible.
