It depends on how long you exercise and if you eat healthy all the time. Try to do different kind of exercises besides for ther abs, but you can continue on with them. In getting a good body I believe there are a few steps first, including consistency but also inconsistency. So keep up with your normal exercises, but try to add something a little different into it once in a while.

I usually don't pay much attention to stuff like this becuase it will normally go away once i stop playing .And it did that for a little bit. But then it would start to hurt when i would do things like walk to the store and back. So i took a few days off to rest it and it felt better. but today i go out and it starts to tighten up on me again.
It doesn't sound like anything is severely wrong but it does suck. So is there anything i need to do, take time off, not exercise as rigorously, or see a doctor?
Growing pains? I mean if your older then it can't be growing pains.. but it's probably the reason if your still growing.
P.S - I just want to let everybody know about my fitness status so far, since I haven't posted in a bit.
I am now 5'9 and weigh 128 pounds.. now seeing as I am going back to school soon, I want to get into better shape then I was before.. but I decided to check my BMI to see if I was at a healthy weight, I was at a healthy weight already.. 18.5 and under would = underweight, I am just over with 18.9!
So, just wait a second.. I want to lose weight, NOT GAIN WEIGHT! I am a bit nervous because I am stuck here in two situations, either gain more weight or lose more weight.. is there anyway I can lose fat and gain abs? I am just going into my ''workout stage'' and I want to get a good body as I do have some excess fat I would love to remove, anybody want to help?
