Heart disease – Can you exercise with heart disease? Healthcare expert weighs in



    Cardiovascular fitness refers to exercise that uses the cardiovascular system (the heart, lungs and vessels) to supply oxygenated blood to working muscles during the workout.

    You may be nervous about trying cardio exercises such as running, cycling, swimming, rowing, climbing, but it’s extremely important.

    Dr Behr said: “Heart disease patients can undertake cardiovascular exercise and indeed this can be very good for their well-being and prognosis.

    However, the intensity and period of the cardio exercise must be tailored to their condition, Dr Behr said.

    The cardiologist explained: “In general, if the condition is negatively affected by exercise, high-intensity, endurance or competitive sports are best avoided and a personalised approach from a cardiologist is advised.”
