I have a health issue and need your advice. When in for a Calcium score on my heart, which was good at 0, but they discovered an minor ectatic aorta. I had an echocardiagram and the function is good, so it is in the monitor stage. I am cleared to continue to work out, but need to minimize thoracic pressure. All my strength workouts increase thoracic pressure.
One workout I got is hundreds training with 50-60% max. Basically substituting an aerobic burn for an anaerobic. I have always believed in heavier weight with low to moderate reps and have used 531 and your Best Damn workouts, so this is a new world for me. Can I do hundreds long term?
Unfortunately, no one I talk to seems to have information or suggestions. I really would like to continue training but not make things worse. Any suggestions would be appreciated on a scary subject.
Wow, no one has a comment! Usually you cant shut you all up!
