    No.
    Possibly some low back endurance but not strength IMO.
    Back raises,good mornings,partial DL/rack pulls can all help low back strength.
    Some kind of resistance wether it's weights or bands.

    Good idea if you have an adjustable dip bar.
    Or could use a chain on a belt and adjust the length.
    I agree no more than a 90 degree elbow bend for keeping the shoulders healthy.

    I concur see a doctor.
    A hernia is a tear from the inside to out side.
    You may only have a partial tear if you don't have an area with a lump on your abs/lower abs.
