Hey guys (and gals)! It has been a long time since I've visited, so I have no idea who half of you are.....which may be a good thing.:)
Anyway, if I recall correctly, a few years back I think I asked a few of you about a generalized pain in my abdomen......well, as it turns out, I have a hernia. Now, from what the doctor told me, it is a smalll weak area (not really torn) and not an inguinal hernia. He told me that sit-ups and crunches may aggrivate it, and that surgery isn't necessary right now but will probably be in the future. So, the question is, should I return to the gym with a new program that minimalizes impact on that area, stay with light weight and more reps, or just diet for the rest of my life?
Since I was last here, I've gone from 248lbs. to 205lbs. and while I've lost some muscle, I just can't resist the urge to take advantage of this starting weight for a new program.
What do you think?
