THE NOTORIOUS GUY GUT (DIASTASIS IN MEN)

If the notorious “guy gut” doesn’t lead to diastasis, men still run a greater risk of developing hernias, which often lead to surgery. This contributes 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.
