Lay off situps for a week and try abs rollout box jumps and planks in the meantime to strengthen your core :)

Side to side bend... cross knee high… twists … flutter kicks... Try leg raise to see if the pain is still there………

I do leg raises too and the pain is there just not as severe.

Ok try the other ones...
It may also be gas... check it out, and one very important things when you ate doing sit ups is to exhale whenever you are compressing your body... otherwise you will put a lot of pressure on your organs...
For more info check the topic good to know...

I do those already. I do sit ups, crunches, leg raises, planks and squats everyday.

What's your maximum hold?

I'm not really sure. I just started a couple days ago and I'm at like 30s and it's not coming close to bothering me... Time will tell, taking it one day at a time.

Try giving at least a day before hitting the same muscle group again, your muscles need recovery time that's when the growth happens be sure to fuel your self with good enough proteins and proper rest. Too little rest and gap would lead to injuries try your best to avoid them and good luck working out :)

Just vary the exercise and limit your bending forward at the hip or lifting the legs up. And your twisting exercises

Instead of sit-ups do reverse crunches. Instead of lifting your body to your knees, bring your knees to your chest and breath out and squeeze your abdominals tightly at the top of the motion. Regular crunches put a lot of strain on your hip flexors which could be the pain you're feeling. Crunches are worthless mostly anyway lol.

Lol thanks. I've tried several other things. Like burpees and some other things. The pain was still there.
