Brantley Gilbert has been told to stay away from the gym for awhile because of a Hernia. “I’ve got four tears in my stomach,” Gilbert says it was from lifting too much at the gym.

Brantley says his regular routine is to hit the gym at least five days a week, sleep well, take his supplements and eat right. He says as long as he does that he stays in shape.

Gilbert believes there are other reasons he has a hernia, like singing. “I think I really, legitimately got it from singing,” Gilbert says about the umbilical hernia. He believes that because he says he strains his stomach so much when he sings.

Brantley will release his second album, ‘Just As I Am,’ with Big Machine on May 19th and it includes his latest hit ‘Bottoms Up.’
