Here are the possible causes of ptosis of the abdominal cavity in athletes: 1. Overly large portions of food, swallows bodybuilder in pursuit of an extreme "weight". 2. Wrong strategy for training the abdominal muscles, aimed only at developing a bump and oblique muscles, but can not compensate for such unsightly bulging belly.
