The recommendations for exercise are based on low impact exercises that focus on core strengthening and that also do not increase abdominal pressure. There is a bit of research done on this. Most exercises are considered safe and/or encouraged. These can include safely performed weight lifting, situps, Yoga, Pilates, cycling. Jumping and squats are considered to increase the abdominal pressure, so I recommend no Cross-Fit type exercises.
