The "hernia" came from deadlifting. It's because I didn't tense my core and it felt like my guts were gonna explode out my stomach. In my expert opinion I'd say deadlifts are one exercise you should guarantee to feel a hernia unless you're lifting some gay weights.Strange place to affect DLs.
Pretty sure I can DL with no hernia related issues.
Obvs we've both self diagnosed and probs don't even have the same injury, never mind a hernia, but still wired for a pain there to impact...I can do every lift except an work and chin ups are uncomfortable...fuck, can't do lunges. No fucking way.
Speaking of gay weights, my deadlift session wasn't great. I felt a weird feeling in my stomach doing only 100kg. I think it's purely mental but I didn't want to risk it so just left it there. I'm 99% sure the feeling was because I need to fart ffs, because it was on the other side of the stomach from where the pain came originally.
Guess I'll just skip legs all together eh?
