Weight Training With Pacemaker
After a bought of more ilnesses (Restless Leg Syndrome & Sleep Apnoea) I should finally have all my health issues behind me in the New Year, so I was looking into getting back into training and exercise. (FYI, my pacemaker was inserted over 2 years ago)
I used to be very muscly and have now put on quite a bit of fat and I am looking to trim down. But I also love weight lifting and my question is does anyone have any tips on how to weightlift safely with a pacemaker? Plus, because I have had the pacemaker inserted at the point where my chest is the smallest it has been (Muscle-wise) if I grow my chest muscles will the size of the muscle put pressure on the wires/pacemaker so much that it would pull the wires out? I am not looking to be a weightlifter but I put on muscle quite easily.
Any other tips on exercise would be very helpful if there is anything people have learnt when getting back into exercise.
