I'm new to this forum. I had a PM implanted mid January, 2020 for a 2nd Degree AV block. I was feeling it most when I would exercise, and especially heavy weight lifting. Eventually it got to be all of the time, even getting up from the couch. I had hit an all time peak with new PR's for myself with lifting and had my sights set on competing in Strongman this summer. Things have changed a bit now.
My doctor said I can go back to lifting when I asked if I could. He said he doesn't want me not doing the things I enjoy doing in my life. That was good to hear, but honestly I'm still nervous. I'm starting out light to see how I feel.
I'm just here reaching out to get feedback from other weightlifters with pacemakers. Strongman experience would be great to hear back on too. I'm afraid of some of the lifts due to the potential of hititng the PM with an impliment, example the log press. How has it impacted your training, and do you have any tips? Thanks.
Oh yeah, I'm 32. Docs were trying all other avenues to figure it out because of my age.
