Strong abdominal actions are contra-indicated for women during the days of menstruation and during pregnancy. They should also be avoided by those who have recently undergone any surgical procedure of the abdomen, or have any abdominal condition like diarrhoea. Abdominal actions are closely linked to the back-body. Those with weakness/ injury in the back are advised caution.
