    So I want to exercise my muscles a bit and bought some dumbell weights but I'd like to do in the safest way possible, so as not to develop hernia. I heard that most common causes are this excessive weight lifting and sudden twists.

    What extra care should I take to eliminate the risks and exercise my muscles in a safe way?

    So you squat while doing stuff like lateral raise? I got this exercise sheet from York, together with the weights and it doesn't mention it; they're all just standing in the pictures.

    If they come with an 'exercise sheet/poster' no doubt it's one of the 20kg sets (2x10kg dumbbells) that argos and the others pedal, nothing substantial.

    You can still get quite decent arms with 20 kg dumbbells.

    I had some of them ages ago - I didnt get a hernia though (don't think so anyway )

    OP just don't overdo it with the weights and you'll probably be fine.


    Note: If you DO get a hernia, then you overdid it, and it's your fault :p:
