    A hernia can happen anytime there is abdominal pressure pushing out, coupled with a weak spot in the muscle wall. Straining to use the bathroom can actually cause a hernia to appear.

    Do you have a hernia?

    what sort of hernia are we talking about?

    assuming something like a sports hernia, I don't think it's something to be afraid of, had a hernia 15 years ago but I've been fine ever since. I don't think any exercise is foolproof or would directly cause it. However, things in everyday life like coughing/sneezing fits can cause it.

    I know after a month, most things done for lower than 10 reps or over 70% of my 1RM would just not be comfortable at all and I avoided. Squats, deadlifts, overhead pressing, benching not so much. Leg pressing, EZ-Bar curls. I avoided direct abdominal work for obvious reasons. But after 3 months or so I was fine.

    It would be something to ask your doctor or physical therapist for your particular issue/hernia type.
    As mentioned trying to avoid one training is hit and miss.
    Probably anyone could possibly get one if one trains with weights and or puts pressure on the abdominals/core.
    I would say get your core strong.
    You could start with planks or other movements.
    Regular ab movements usually just address at the abdominal wall and not so much internally.
    Most hernias are a tear from the inside out so addressing the deep intra abdominals is important.
