Maintaining an active lifestyle
despite heart disease

If you have heart disease, it is important to exercise regularly. Exercise can strengthen your heart muscle and help you manage your blood pressure and cholesterol. Exercising can benefit almost any condition.
So if you've had a heart attack, have a weak heart (congestive heart failure) or another heart issue, don't just sit around and do nothing. Don't wait until it's too late to start an exercise program or increase your physical activity. Ask your doctor for guidelines and an "OK" before you begin.

Types of Exercise you can do

You should talk with your doctor before you start a new exercise program. Also, ask your doctor if it is okay before you start a more challenging activity. Aerobic exercises use your heart and lungs for a long time.
Take it slow and choose an aerobic activity such as walking, swimming, light jogging, or biking. Do this at least 3 to 4 times a week. Stretch or move around for 5 minutes before exercising. After exercising, allow yourself time to cool down. You should take breaks before you get too tired. If you feel tired or if you feel any heart symptoms, stop. Wear comfortable clothing for exercise. If it's hot outside, exercise in the morning or evening. Don't wear too many layers.
Increasing your strength through resistance weight training may help your muscles work together more effectively. You may be able to do everyday activities easier as a result. These exercises are beneficial. You should keep in mind, however, that they do not strengthen your heart as aerobic exercise does. Consult your healthcare provider before beginning a weight-training regimen. Don't push yourself too hard. If you are suffering from heart disease, a lighter workout is better than working out too hard. You may need to consult a physical therapist or trainer. These professionals can help you do exercises correctly. Breathe steadily and switch between upper and lower body exercises. Get plenty of rest. A cardiac rehabilitation program may be right for you. Find out if you can get a referral from your doctor.

If exercise puts too much strain on your heart, you may have pain and other symptoms, such as:

  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Chest pain
  • Irregular heartbeat or pulse
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
You should pay attention to these warning signs. Stop what you're doing immediately. Relax. If you experience heart symptoms, know how to treat them. Write down what you were doing and the time when you experienced symptoms. Tell your doctor about this. Please contact your healthcare provider right away if these symptoms are severe or do not resolve when you stop the activity. Your healthcare provider can give you advice about exercise at your regular medical appointments.
