I found out recently that I have a hernia and to say it flat out, I’m pissed. As a serious soccer player, this injury has single handedly reduced the velocity of my shot, lowered my top sprint speed, and has been small everyday things (like sneezing or carrying somethign heavy) a pain in the butt. I am not going to let this injury make it game over for me.
I realize that I will need surgery to correct this (unless someone knows of a different procedure), but in the mean time, I don’t want to let me fitness and training go down the tubes - even though it feels like it is now.
Was hoping to get all of your expert advice on what kinds of abdominal exercises, and other exercises I can do to keep my fitness level high and my 6-pack showing. Also, if any of you have had a hernia and had it corrected, it would be great to hear about your experiences – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
