>>35501154 I have a repaired aortic coarctation (google if interested)
Anyways I can't do weightlifting because the process of weightlifting requires us to somethings do the Valsalva maneuver (when you breathe against a closed throat), which raises blood pressure and increases potential damage to my blood vessels
It's not a end all be all kind of thing, but its a general consensus among doctors that it should be avoided, even though my repair procedure went OK when I was 5 (24 now)
>>35501197 Well you won't ever pull heavy ass deadlifts or squat the moon, but lighter weights (while breathing normally) shouldn't be a problem, right? And there's also static exercises (like wall sits) where progressive overload doesn't come from more weight, but longer holding times or different angles. Then there's all kinds of cardio, which won't make you big, but you can still get impressively fit and healthy.
>>35501327 >>35501277 OP here, my point exactly Yeah cardio can help me lose weight, but to pack muscle it's not that really helpful, unless I trail run like a motherfucker Guess I can't be picky and just be glad I'm alive
>>35501294 So and so mate, BAV is fairly common, and there's association between BAV and increased risk of aortic diseases or valve disease aswell, and only in those case weightlifting can be harmful.
