Well.......I should exericse. When I became ill a few weeks ago I have not been back to the gym.
But the ones that I like to do are the ones I learned in cardiac rehab. BTW, when I return I'm going to ask for suggestions from the team to get started all over again. I have heard of other heart patients going full force after not exercising and getting in trouble with that. But....I like the cardioglide because I'm so dang fat it's hard to walk and gets my heart rate up too high. The cardioglide is something (I hope I'm calling it the right thing, I have another thing at home called something like this.) that you sit down on and push pedals back and forth while moving your arms back and forth, kind of like ski poles is all I can think of. Then I do 2 sets of most of the weight machines. They told me how much I could lift and how to add reps, etc. I dont' lift much with my arms. Anyway, I've been feeling really guilty and like I'm not taking good care of myself. I am going back!! I promised myself today.
P.S. I forgot to answer a couple of the questions. Yes, these helped. I had started losing weight, had a little more energy, and just felt better, could walk a little longer and breathe better. I better get back.
