Common Questions and Answers about Heart problems and weight lifting


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 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 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 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 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?
1456780 tn?1310146897 s like now, I can sprint and get my heart to 180 quite easily, and if I sprint up a hill, it reaches 180 but I can also feel it pounding hard in my chest. Does this make sense?
Avatar f tn depends what you are talking about... weight lifting, if you were doing it before you were pregnant then your fine to continue doing what you did at the gym if it still feels comfortable. if you mean things around the house and so on i carry loads of laundry at home up and down are flight of stairs since the beginning im 32 wks now ( no problems) i also have a 4 year old niece i carried early in pregnancy she's probably about 25 or 30 lbs.
Avatar m tn My father had a heart attack 2 years ago, so I was a bit worried(and I went through panic attacks for a few weeks) about having a heart problem as well and I went to the doctor and did blood tests, ECG, echo and stress test.. and everything turned out normal. Now, 2 years later, I'm having some chest pains in the middle-right area when going for a walk for more than 30 minutes.
Avatar m tn Antidepressants and SSRIs cause a wide variety of symptoms and everyone responds to them differently. Most experiences weight gain, but I've heard of several who lose as well. That being said, it is rare to notice such drastic side effects within the first month of using any antidepressant. It usually takes at least 2 months to notice a difference. My guess is that you've lost the weight because you're no longer lifting weights.
Avatar m tn You sound like you could be having anxiety issues,or maybe vertigo,the tightness around your head could be a sinus issue but it sounds to me like they are pressure headaches,as long as you feel comfortable with the weight lifting i cant see why you shouldnt be able to continue doing it with your doctors say so
1066531 tn?1254969334 I’ve been working out for many years now, and i want to know how I can tone my body better without losing a large portion of weight, mostly my chest and midsection? I’m 6ft 198lbs I would like to be around 195 but in much better “shape”. My diet ***** and i’m trying to work on it, but I work out at the gym 2-3 times a week lifting weights and running. I dont run a whole bunch though, would that help my problem or will that just make me lose wieght?
Avatar f tn Yes like trying to snach and lift your maximum amount you can life in one press. I am not going to talk any more about weight lifting and eye problems. Time to move on.
Avatar m tn , 44 yo male. This weight loss was relatively easy, as I stopped lifting heavy weights and started counting calories. A Dr. told me weight lifting was bad for my heart, another one said is okay. I have started back to lifting light weights. The decreased weight hopefully has taken some strain off of my heart. It will be tough to lose the next 14. Sounds like you may be ready for some lifestyle changes. Losing some weight may help with taking some strain off of your heart.
Avatar n tn My mom had a 5 pound limit on her lifting. She had CHF and only had a few small heart attacks, but had blockage, valve problems, and cardiomyopathy.
Avatar m tn Power lifting can put (too?) much strain on one's heart. If you're doing muscle reps rather than power I doubt the weight lifting is causing any problems. If you are straining your "guts" out, then that's another matter, I think. It does sound like you are worrying too much, too much anxiety isn't good for anything in the body, especially the heart.
Avatar n tn t think if all of your heart tests are as you state normal, including the holter, that this is your heart. This may be a neurological disorder, and you may need nerve conduction studies and an MRI of the brain to exclude any vascular abnormality which may be manifest when you strain during heavy weight lifting.
Avatar m tn m wondering if this could have something to do with a combination of sleep apnea (waking up not breathing and having to inhale deeply) and some kind of heart condition (the combination of the sharp pain and subsequent rapid heart beat and palpitations). Also, its possible that the collarbone i broke on my right side a year ago (which has kept my sternum out of alignment often) has something to do with the pain.
Avatar m tn Get you heart checked by a doctor - asking your question, and watch you heart rate to be sure you don't force extremely high heart rates, e.g., you maximum HR and higher.
Avatar n tn Is anyon weight lifting during their pregnancy i do alot of squats dead lifts and hugg intensity exercises. My doctor said it was alright but other s ob say otherwise..
Avatar f tn t light either. I just worry I will hurt the baby and when I should stop lifting or carrying anything. Thanks!
