Heart problems and weight lifting

Common Questions and Answers about Heart problems and weight lifting


Avatar n tn In general however low level resistence weight training (e.g. 5-10 lb weights) is OK and does not cause any problems. Ask your doctor if low level weight training during rehab is OK for you.
Avatar m tn Just an idea any way Also have you had your heart check I heard a lot healthy athletes have hidden Heart problems for some reason. so much so that the athletes now often have there heart checked compleatly.
Avatar m tn Adaptive hypertrophy is normal and good, and it is caused by different forms of exercise, such as anaerobic training like weight lifting and power lifting, and also aerobic training like cycling or jogging. In the case of concentric enlargement, your heart can get more "muscular" in which it the muslce walls thicken outwards, this is known as concentric cardiac hypertrophy and is caused by anaerobic training like weight lifting.
Avatar n tn i was born with alot of heart problems. i weight about 120 lbs and have started lifting weights. i had read that it may not be advised due to the fontan procedure. i would realy like to continue to lift weights even if i could just use 10 lbs weights and lift them alot. i would like to know if this is discouraged due to the fontan procedure. i assumed exercise would be good, but i've read that only low intensity should be done. thankyou very much.
Avatar n tn m getting ready to start an intense exercise routine including heavy weight lifting to try and increase my weight and was wondering how this condition will affect my results. Am I naturally a skinny person because of the aortic bicuspid and will I have difficulty gaining significant weight even with a proper diet and lifting routine? Also I plan to supplement with creatine and was wondering if this will cause any problems for my condition? Thanks so much for your answer.

Avatar m tn So my primary doctore and cardologist and several other doctor said there is no heart related problem. One time after weight lifting, I had pain and call ambulance but doctor discharge saying not any life threading problem as it is not heart attack or heart related pain. But I was still in a pain. But if do weight lifting or let's 15 lbs dumbbell for a while then I start having a pain which then stay for couple of days. Also, never have a problem with breathing or feeling like short breath.
Avatar m tn But to gain weight, eat more protein and start weight lifting under the guidance of a good trainer. That will put on muscle, not fat, and it's good at mitigating anxiety as well. Mix that with something aerobic like bicycling or swimming and you'll be amazed at how your body will react. Can't say it'll solve your anxiety any, but your body will react better to it.
Avatar n tn And when my heart gets pumping it feels like something is jabbing my in the heart and it hurts to breath. And other times my heart will be fine and I just cant breath very well. Anyone knows what is happening please let me know.

Avatar n tn weight training....
961612 tn?1250642671 According to the doctor I have to rest for a few days before I can start my weight lifting again...and that *****.
Avatar n tn I have had bypass 1.5 years ago and never had a heart attack, and I'm 54. I just passed my cardio-lite stress test with flying colors. I do not take blood pressure medication(140/90). I'm now in very good shape aerobically but want to start lifting weights. I was told that I need to be careful on the exertion level when pushing heavy weights. Is this true, and are there any precautions I should be aware of?
1135275 tn?1586565652 I have concluded that barbiturates cause or aggrevate heart palpitations and pounding. As my blood levels of butalbital build up, so too do my problems with palps, pounding, and abnormal beats. When the med is discontinued, the condition slowly decreases until finally i have no problems at all...and it seems to decrease at the rate at which the butalbital is being eliminated from my system. This is an interesting observation.

Avatar f tn I got a stent put in. Probably a problem from the high blood calcium, treatment, and blood pressure all mixed together. Getting ablation, too.
Avatar n tn The vagus nerve runs between heart and stomach and controls heart rate by slowing it down. A signal spike from the vagus nerve is probably responsible for PAC's and missed beats. My MD says that I have high vagal tone, which to me means that it doesn't take much stimulation to produce heart arrythmias. I was going into Afib so recently had an ablation done.
Avatar n tn every since then i have a strange feeling in my chest and when i climb a few stairs or walk at least 100 yards it feels like i have tightness in my chest and my heart feels funny. i have a feeling that the cause of this is the test booster i was taking because it would really wire me up. i was taking the test booster for 1 month before this happend. i am a 28 year old male, 6'2, 260lbs. is this something i need to worry about or by stopping the pills should this pass in a few days?
Avatar f tn Hello, I've been "diagnosed" with HBP a year ago, I'm 28, overweight but go to the Gym every 2-3 days and do a nice workout. But some days I feel like my heart is tired... I've had chest pains but were dismissed as coming from weight lifting. I've had EKG and all tests and they are all fine. I've even lowered my Cholesterol (from mid to low). Normally, I start feeling bad at 4-5PM throughtout the day till going to bed... (unless I exercise) Any idea?
Avatar n tn Posted by Ashley Rogers on June 05, 1999 at 09:42:55 I am a white male at the age of 24 years old. I was born with VSD and it has been getting smaller as I get older, but has not closed as of yet. I was born 4.4 oz, and I am now 5'4 and weigh 150lbs. For the past few years, and really just recently, I have been lifting weights pretty hard to gain muscle size. I have also been taking a bodybuilding supplement called creatine and andro, but I have stopped taking the andro.
Avatar m tn I also have a swollen lymph node in my neck, but i have done so many exams and blood work with hematologists, cardiologist etc and they cant find anything wrong. My vision problems and heart rate are constant, im currently taking beta blockers which somewhat work a little. Elisa did you see doctor Green? If you did how was your experience with him?... Well i surf play soccer and go to the gym.
Avatar m tn I am 33 years old and i have 2 small children ages 2 and 4. I am also looking after my mother with my husband in jail.... I seem to be some what stressed a little. recently I have been having these funny little episodes with my heart I get breathless then my heart does these half beats where it feels like its trying to stop then goes back to normal heart rate the doctor did say to me that it was eptopic beat but didnt explain anything to me. which as it does stresses you out even more.
