I Have a Hernia! (NOW WHAT?)

Hernias are one of the most common injuries suffered by men, with over 25% of all men likely to suffer one in their lifetime. That said, when you consider the increased risk in populations who lift weights, the numbers become even more staggering. The question is, what happens if you get a hernia? Are your days of lifting weights over? In this video, I’m going to answer the most common questions about hernias and tell you what to do to fix a hernia if you get one (if you even need to).

First, it helps to discuss a little bit about what a hernia even is. There are many different types of hernias but the one that is most commonly seen is called an inguinal hernia, which occurs in the inguinal canal or groin.

At birth, you are born with a weakened tissue in the lower abdominal wall due to the opening that never fully closes called the inguinal ring. When intra-abdominal pressure rises, such as though coughing, sneezing, or lifting heavy weights, the contents of the abdomen can be pressed against this hole causing it to gradually break down over time.

At the point that the hole is large enough, some of the internal structures, like the small intestine, can be pushed through the hole while still under the skin of course which can cause a dull or sharp ache in the groin area.

Anyone that suffers a hernia when lifting will likely see a visible bulge in the area just to the right or left of the pubic area. The question then becomes whether or not you should have hernia surgery to fix the problem.

If you were to opt for surgery there are two types of repairs that are performed. The first is one that isn’t often done anymore due to its increased failure rate. This is called a high tension repair. It involved sewing up the hole from the outside in. The sutures often break however as soon as IAP increases in the abdomen through any of the activities listed above.

On the other hand, the mesh surgery is something much more commonly done these days. It is called a low tension repair because the hole is never attempted to be closed and the tension on the tissues in the area remains low. Instead, a large piece of mesh is implanted on the inner abdomen that covers the hole and prevents the contents from pushing through the hole. Even if the hole becomes bigger over time, the mesh is large enough to cover the area and prevent aggravating the symptoms again.

I had two hernias in my life.

The first was repaired laparoscopically with a mesh and has been holding up well for the last 10 years.

The second occurred while demonstrating an exercise I was instructing you not to do, the one arm dumbbell row, back in 2013. I have lived with this hernia ever since and have opted to take a watch and wait approach. This is something that many choose to do as well but is it the right thing to do?

If you choose not to get surgery you have to understand the risks and what type of things you need to be on the lookout for. First, you should try and avoid exercises like the one armed dumbbell row. The offloaded arm combined with the position of the knee up on the bench and the back leg behind you creates increased tension in the area while allowing gravity a better opportunity to push the inner abdominal contents down.

A tripod stance on the exercise fixes many of the limitations that come with the performance of the exercise done this way.

The other thing to be mindful of is the use of exercises that greatly increase intraabdominal pressure (IAP) like the deadlift, squat or even leg press. I’m not saying that you have to forego these exercises if you have a hernia. Not at all. In fact, I think that would be a greater mistake in the long run if you did. You simply have to understand that these exercises require greater bracing which increases IAP and places more inner to outer pressure that can increase risk of further herniation.

Lowering the weight on the exercises a bit while wearing a belt can help to mitigate some of these stresses. The belt gives your abdomen something to press into while helping to keep the abdominal contents centralized. The lighter weights will decrease the increases in IAP that substantially heavy weights demand. You may explore alternative bracing techniques as well that decrease the need for IAP a bit by including a focus on isometric stabilization of the rectus abdominis and transverse abdominis.

    Jeff. Thank you for this and every other very informative video you put out. Truly! 5 days ago had bilateral laproscopic inguinal hernia surgery. I was having no visible protrusions but I did have intermittent left testicle pain and from there the ultra sound did reveal the condition. I wanted so badly for the discomfort to go away that I just took the referral from my GP to see the Hernia Specialist and so I got the surgery. That decision made quickly, driven by my pain and general discomfort in the groin. The doctor used a polypropylene mesh from a company called Bard. Here is my question: What kind of mesh did you have put into you. I am reading some (a-lot) of terrifying things on the internet about polypropylene mesh implant products for hernia repair . Where do you stand on this? Do you have concerns too? If you had a time machine would you go about things differently? I am a physically active 48 year old. Don't drink or smoke and, am a bit of a health nut myself. So I'm kind of nerve racked about this subject matter. Again, thank you for your attention and wonderfully informative content.

    There are several types of hernias. Umbilical (belly button), inguinal (I believe is right testicle area), femoral (left testicle), and I think the last is abdominal (anywhere on the abdomen that isnt what was already said). Hernias suck. I've been feeling one ready to burst thru the inguinal for many years now. Sometimes I would feel a shift from right nut to left nut (maybe just some feces passing to small intestine). Not a good feeling. I take it easy with abs now and do isometric exercises like a kegel type exercise and I think it has helped. I dont do them religiously but it seems that doing them seems to have helped. I feel like I should do more to tighten everything up though.

    Hi Jeff and Jesse. I have a one and a half year old daughter and haven't slept well for the last one and a half years. So my question is what would be your advice to people dealing with chronic lack of sleep which inevitably becomes a problem for training and recovery but not only. It actually affects your whole life and health. How would you deal with it on a daily basis and what can make things better (bearing in mind that just getting some more sleep is not an option, regardless of the reason). Thank you.

    I had laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair 7 months ago. No complications afterwards, almost no pain. I had very good surgeon. After 3 months I resumed normal gym trainings. Right now I just avoid almost all exercises in which I have to move heavy weights in a standing position. The only one that I still do are squats (goblin) with relatively light dumbbell. But I still make progress and right now I look better then I did before injury. I'm 35. My advice - if you have hernia, find good surgeon and fix it. Surgery is not that bad, really. I took painkillers only for 1,5 day after the surgery

    A big mistake people with hernia do is that they eat as soon as they wake up, and food in their stomach makes pressure to their abdominal wall so it makes hernia to pop out really easily and sometimes it really ruin your day in early morning, also from my own experience I know it's not good for hernia to drink water right after the meal. My routine is to do some body weight exercises when i wake up, it's usually pull ups, and then go to the work or I do something in my back yard, and I have breakfast 3, 4 or even 5 hours after waking up. This proved to be good solution for me and my hernia which I have 5 years already, since my 15.

    I endured a left inguinal hermia for two years from age 29-31. I wore a hernia belt during that time and train with weights and yoga with minor inconvenience. During sex (not using the belt lol) it wasn't a problem at all. You can live with a hernia but is a nuisance. You have to be very mindful on how you breath, sneeze, have a correct posture when bending, lifting, squating. It can help you become very mindful, but it will most probably become bigger if you are still young and very active. I underwent traditional surgery (no mesh) after consulting with 3 different surgeons. I stayed away from the mesh cuz it has its cons. I don't know why most surgeons nowadays don't do them without the mesh...I guess they want to make an extra buck for sure. I would stay away from laparoscopic as well; it may reduce scarring but I think is more prone to do a half-ass job. Surgery was in 2014. Is 2021 and is been good so far *knock on wood*.

Your videos are science based, unlike the BS you see on other HRcharts channels. I developed an inguinal hernia last year, and elected not to have it repaired. Instead, I modified my workout so that it would fit my current condition. I do however have a question- what kind of abdominal exercises would you suggest for someone with an inguinal hernia without ending up with an incarcerated hernia? Thank you in advance!

The pain resides in my left shoulder blade area and, depending on how I position my head the pain travels up through my neck. Here's the deal, 2 of the 3 times I've hurt this area I wasnt even working my back. First I was working chest, and the second time I was working shoulders..since it keeps happening I've begun to include facepulls on the daily. What else can I do to prevent further irritation and injury?

    Hey, Jeff. I have a question that I haven’t seen answered on here before. What’s your stance on alcohol consumption with weight loss/gains? I’m not talking about binging alcohol (cause clearly that really halts your progress), I’m talking more along the lines of having a few beers/half of a pint one day throughout the whole week. Usually, on fridays or saturdays, I like to have either a half of a pint, or 3 beers. It’s only one day out of the week that this occurs. How badly does a few drinks once a week impair weight loss? How badly does a few drinks once a week impair your gains? Can it still halt your progress even if you’re in a calorie deficit? -Joey

    So im guessing deadlifts and squats are the highest chances of getting hernias as i always feel my stomach working too or having tension

    When I pay attention to Jeff's terminology and the way he explains human anatomy I'm thinking he could have been a successful medic.

    Ive had my hernia repaired with a mesh & since then I am struggling to get the abs showing... Its been 7 months now since the repair & when I do abdominal workouts I feel as if I get cramps after only doing a few sit-ups.. Is this normal after the Op or have I got something else going on here...? Awesome video. Thankyou

    Ax Jeff question: I know this channel mostly focuses on lifting weights for muscle growth, but as an athletically minded person I also perform cardio as well. My question is, which cardio would be best for complementing the development of the different muscle groups? I feel like elliptical and cycling complement leg (posterior chain and quad) development, while something like rowing complements legs, back, and biceps. Do you agree and is there cardio which complements chest, triceps, or shoulders?
