Be carefull: Hernias are a weakness in the abdominal wall resulting in a defect in the muscle layer. Therefore things that are supposed to stay protected inside can now come outside. It is possible that organs that are usually inside can get stuck outside which may compromise their blood supply. This is an emergency! therefore any strenous excercise can result in something coming out and getting stuck.
