Hey bharatk8,

It's a very good question.

We hernia coach two types of people -- those who do too much and those who do too little in terms of exercise.

On the one hand many marathoners, decathletes, long distance bicyclists and swimmers develop inguinal hernias because of all the wear and tear on those tissues. They simply blow it out through over-exertion.

Then there are those who do no exercise and create a very unhealthy environment in the pelvic floor. In that case toxicities and low-grade infections occur which weaken the organs and attenuate the tissues.

You know which group you fall in. If the second, you ought to proceed very cautiously since bicycling can exacerbate hernias. You really have to strengthen the whole area first -- with Pilates and Hatha Yoga -- before you bicycle.

We advise against anything that causes pain or more protrusion at the hernia site.

Hope this helps,
HC
