Now, I know most of you are not doctors and do not have any medical experience, but I am looking for other opinions on my scenario… Long story short, I am 26 years old and Saturday December 30th my heart stopped and I collapsed. I don’t use any drugs and this was kind of a freak accident. After arriving at the hospital my heart beat went to zero again… Now other than my heart beat going slow I feel like a champ.
The doctor was not able to diagnose my issue, and he insisted that I have an insertable heart monitor put in. So I now have a heart loop recorder in my chest that records my heart beats. Now other than the cut I have felt fine. The other kicker of this stupid thing is that the doctor insist that I stop all training what so ever and do not supplement. I am allowed to walk… I dont want to just walk, I’m not 80 I want to continue to get stronger.
I have came a long way in my lifting and I am no wanting to lose all my hard work. Would you go against doctors advice and come back slow or give up your training and do what you are told? My family doesn’t train, most my friends dont train, and doctors aren’t about powerlifting… I need some input from people who have a passion about training and havent thought about life with no training.
