Few days old thread but I get what you're saying man. When I was 16 I was big into baseball with intentions to play college ball. I was lifting twice daily and all that nonsense. When I was about 17 I sneezed and noticed what felt like a cramp in my lower waist area (aka my balls). Needless to say I was a little concerned. I ignored it for a few months then decided to go see a dr I'd always gone to. Told me I had one on my lower right abdominal area. Had surgery the next week (trying to make it back to play my senior year). Went into surgery crying like a b*tch, surgery is literally my biggest phobia in life more than a gun pointed at my face. Needless to say everything went fine other than I had a hernia on my lower left abdominal area as well. They simple threw some little cotton ball sized mesh pieces in there and sewed it up. Recover was hell but after it was great and I'm lifting more often than I ever was.

What I think caused mine however was doing squats. I was doing a three day lifting routine, meaning third day was legs. At the time I was doing bench squats with a spotter and going beyond failure and the spotter assisting me on my last two reps. Before surgery I was squatting over 400 repeatedly.

I've literally never met, never heard, or even read anything about a guy as young as I was getting a hernia.

You go big or you go home man. Applies in the gym or fitness just like anything else. If you don't give it your all your chances of injuring yourself are a lot higher. If the risk isn't worth the reward to you tho then there's no point

you get hernias from not breathing right say when you lift and you dont breath out, the pressure builds in you intestines then blam hernia, breath out every time you push or exert strength and breath in when the weight is coming down

Pretty much every top strength coach would disagree with this. Valsalva technique helps to hold core tightness to avoid back injuries.

since I've learned to hold pressure it's helped me a lot. The belt imo is working wonders.

i'm trying to get the best of both worlds... when I was deadlifting yesterday I was taking a big breath in, holding it to get the weight off the floor, then as I lifted slowly exhaling by making a "duck face", in this case I feel its ok lol

I think that's ok. I know for me personally, as long as I have my body full of air on the hardest part of the lift I'm ok. On pull ups and chins I find it helps to exhale as I pull up.

Definitely helps... I randomly discovered my "core" on wide grip pullups yesterday, I focused on keeping it rigid and holy fk did that help, I got an easy 2-3 more reps doing that. Funny how focusing on things like "pulling the bar towards yourself" and keeping a tight core make worlds of difference.
