Sneeze Hurt My Ribs


#1

This morning I sneezed, then saw I was on the floor (on my knees)from the incredible pain in my upper left ab brought on by the sneeze.

What the hell happened???
The area had a slight soreness to it beforehand, now I have to be careful how I move or more fun is sure to follow.....

THIS is a new one on me!

FYI: I meant to title this Abs not ribs lol.

you pulled your abs from sneezing…sucks dude!

i heard bob youngs did that a few years ago…i think.

Ribs okay?


#4

I’ve had a bad back since I was 18 and have blown it out sneezing.


#5

Contact Joe Weider, tell him you have a new exercise !


#6

Hernia?


#7

I have to tighten up my middle if I feel a sneeze coming on. A sudden, sharp contraction leaves something pulled, these days.

We’ll never know from the lack of info…but I am surprised you were the first to say it.
