No worse than base: Trivial pulmonary & mitral regurg shouldn't be hemodynamically significant & wouldn't require any activity restrictions. Careful though: body building can be unhealthy. In addition, heavy duty static exertion (e.g., straining exercises like power lifting) put increased strain on the mitral valve and can increase regurgitation.

On the internet?: Jack. I would advise you not to trust any physician who would answer your question without examining you and fully reviewing your medical records. I am sorry to be blunt. But we are talking about your heart and your life. No ethical physician will give you 'permission' without more valid in person evaluation.
