Something weird after workout: bulge seemed to recess
Yesterday morning after working out I got home and noticed something seemingly counterintuitive: the small bulge I typically have seemed to have (temporarily) receded a bit. My workouts are with weights and yesterday I did squatting, overhead pressing, cable pull-downs and the battle ropes (those huge ropes that one uses where they appear to be holding reins and whipping a horse…).
Is that as counterintuitive as it seems?
Are there scenarios where increasing intra-abdominal pressure pushes things back in, instead of out?
Is it possible (even likely) that my hernia changes positions slightly throughout the day (sometimes sticking out, sometimes recessed) and that working out had absolutely nothing to do with what I was seeing?
