Elliptical trainer or Rowing machines?
Would be great if PM club members comment in order to help me to make decision regarding physical exercises.
Status: I have PM implanted 5 years ago. There was found a problem with one lead (was "loosing a signal" ) 1/2 year ago. After a very detailed check (incl. contrast computer angiography, ecografia etc.) nothing found - no dislocation, no broken lead (that could be visible; probably some problem inside of electrode). Moreover, due to all parameters during 5-year checks (every ½ year) are very good, my doctor made a decision to completely switch off my PM (no need). So, it is working in “sleeping mode” like a big Holter until battery ends.
Question: Could be any restrictions to use some “cardio” / “aerobic” machines for exercises at home (having a full quarantine for a long time) in terms of risks to get leads / electrodes “broken” while moving arms. Previously was told by doctor to avoid exercises when a cables could be potentially “folded” / “twisted” often. Nothing related to my personal health case – just like a common recommendations.
I am thinking about elliptical trainer or rowing machines? Both require active movements of arms and shoulders (and the second one incl. chest).
Many thanks in advance for your advices.
