Strength Training, Yoga, and Lead Safety
I'm past 6 weeks after surgery, though still new to all this. Just turned 40, otherwise mostly healthy, and I don't want to get too out of shape. Wondering if anyone knows of a comprehensive reference for what's reasonably safe activity to do?
My doc said cardio is great but warned me that I have a complex system, 3 leads, and I should not do too much with the left arm. Said he had a patient who wore out a lead by doing a lot of upper body workouts. Some forum members here feel that you should just live your life and work out how you like. I guess I'm somewhere in the middle. I want to do as much as I can, while at the same time not tempting fate.
Hoping there's some kind of reference for strength training exercises, maybe Yoga poses, and which ones are at higher or lower risk for damaging the leads. Is this a dream or does something like this exist? Or, are there trainers who specialize in helping pacer peeps?
