This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

I had a tough week after being hurt, and not going to the doctor to find out what happened immediately ended up making things worse, as I continued to lift despite a hernia.

A hernia, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is, “a condition in which part of an organ is displaced and protrudes through the wall of the cavity containing it (often involving the intestine at a weak point in the abdominal wall).”

I am hoping to have surgery this week, then I will have six weeks to recuperate. After that I hope to start back up at the gym.The pain does not completely go away, so I had to power through it to work part of the week.

It was also good to hang out with the man inside the “Slinky Man” suit at the Cirque Du Soleil Ovo show, James Johnson.
