Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. You should have yourself evaluated and treated before you enroll for the training program. Hernias are caused due to increased abdominal pressure like coughing, constipation or lifting heavy objects. So, avoid all exercises which increase this pressure.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
