A few years ago I had an abdomen strain from bench pressing and so I quite intensively lifting weights, especially with my stomach.
It got better eventually and so last year I started lifting again on an incline press with my ab muscles.
I also began playing soccer much more frequently and competitively.
In August, I got what seemed to be another ab strain and I laid off the ab excercises.
In combo with this, Starting the previous winter, what seemed to be my hip flexors seemed to be strained while I played soccer.
I started playing only once a week, but they were and continue to be sore when I play.
I cannot do any serious lifting with my ab muscles now and get sore when I play soccer. Are there any stretches that I can do.
The different doctors that I have gone to say that it is not a hernia but perhaps a groin strain. Can you tell me where I can figure out how to stretch these areas or to rehabilitate an ab/hip/groin muslce?
