OK, that being said, although thre is an increased risk, is it still low?[/quote]
Yes. Obviously if you are in good shape, healthy and have no existing conditions that would make you prone to an attack, you have little if anything to worry about. If you are 60+ years old, have high blood pressure, diabetes, and are overweight, you may want to avoid major shocks to your vascular system.
The point was, there is a possible issue so the original poster’s premise isn’t as out there as some of the people in this thread made it sound. It is a possibility and that is the point.
Mind you, healthy young athletes suddenly dropping dead on the basketball court is something that can happen also. People should think outside the box on some issues.
Also, a person with said condition, aren’t they more at risk during the intense workout if they are doing an intense workout? Would not moderation take a bite out of the risk? Moderate intensity to low intensity workout, normal showering temperatures? I am not dismissing the possible. [/quote]
A person with a pre-existing condition is more at risk from breathing.
