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.
