Men, too, are prime suspects for perpetuating the condition—even without having to deal with pregnancy. Think about it—where do most men gain weight as they age? That’s right, the belly. And when the more motivated guys suddenly find themselves with a belly, what’s the first thing they do? Crunches. Lots of them.
If the notorious “guy gut” doesn’t lead to diastasis, men still run a greater risk of developing hernias, which often lead to surgery—which as you already know, contribute to abdominal separation by adding the force of air against the recti muscles. And if it’s an umbilical hernia a man has surgery on—well, not healing the diastasis is about as good as making the stitches with Scotch tape and expecting them to hold. Another common theme among men is that when they get injured playing sports (or any other way), they often get steroids for medical use to treat their injuries. Steroids soften the connective tissue of the linea alba, which increases the likelihood of developing or exacerbating a diastasis.
