    Thanks, everyone for helping make another very exciting HerniaTalk LIVE session. We hoped most all your questions were answered about what core exercises are safe to perform and why you may be having pain when doing some of them.

    If you missed it, watch and share from here:

    Thanks a lot for the upcoming event! I have a question: some have said in the forum that push ups are “bad” when one has an hernia; is it true?
