Over weight, abdominal crunch, bulge in stomach. What is it?

I am a 32 year old male, I am overweight but 2 months ago started martial arts training 5 days a week. Its moderate to intense, my shirt is usually drenched by the time we are done. 2 nights ago I was laying in bed and went into a abdominal crunch and noticed a large bulge develop in the center of my abdomen , above my navel. I would estimate the size of the lump to be a large orange. It seems to go back down when I relax but when I crunch it comes right back. Any idea what this could be?

Possibly likely what you are describing is an hernia.
Hernia is the only swelling which disappears when you lye down.
worthwhile seeing an physician to see what is happening after examining you.
An ultrasonography may help in differentiating it from an intra abdominal pathology.
hope this answers your query.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
