Hi,thanks for query.The pain that you have must be due to some stretching of muscles in an abnomal way.Hernia is a visible swelling at the site of hernia,which increases in size while exercing and decreases in size when you take rest.Hernia can not be heriditary.It can just be a co incidence.Please see that you do the exercise properly.
Wishing you good health.
