Will weight training and aerobic exercise contribute to inflammation and joint pain with sle or will increased strength help?
Strike a balance: Arthritis, especially inflammatory type (like lupus or rheumatoid) responds well to moderate exercise. You have to find the right amount for your body.

Is it true that weightlifting and sprints are more effective for weight loss in women than aerobic exercise?
Not necessarily: High intensity interval training(which entails some sort of sprinting) appears to be more efficient than "standard" aerobic exercise at improving fitness levels and weight loss.

EKG or Echo?: You obviously have some cardiac issues but apparently are on medications to control rate. Is the RVH a finding from an EKG only or is it from Echo cardiogram? If diagnosis is from Echo then I would be more considered. Regardless, talk to your cardiologist (or consult with one) about this. You should determine WHY you have RVH, and how severe, before deciding limitations. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not necessarily: Either. They serve different purposes and, remember, if you cut down your intensity(amount of weight) and increase volume(repetitions) and reduce rest intervals, weight training can be quite aerobic too. In a perfect world your exercise regimen would be a combination of both, which is why there is a strong movement towards aerobically focused resistance training. ...Read more
