Any Men on Here Ever Had a Diastasis?

I have one, caused from heavy lifting and improper ab training. If anyone has advice on this subject, please share it. Also, what ab exercises do i need to stay away from?

Describe please.

lso known as abdominal separation, diastasis recti is a condition where the right and left sides of the rectus abdominus (the muscle that makes up the front wall of the abdominals, also known as the â??six-packâ?? muscle) spread apart at the bodyâ??s midline. Diastasis negatively affects the strength of the abdominal wall and can aggravate lower back pain
