With MDs supervision: Exercise is an essential part of maintaining everyone's health. For those with a heart condiition, exercise must be modified by a physician's quidelines which are specific to that individual's condition . As a cardiologist I have counseled thousands with heart conditions to exercise in a regimen that is both safe for that individual and will provide the maximal benefit.
