I think he is thinking that by the time I get to phase three I should have less of a problem since it will be about two months from now. I am still trying to decide what to do but thank you for your advise. I am leaning to maybe starting the cardio now and adding the weights in a few weeks and then trying to keep my cardio to the days I am not doing weights (I would only have to combine them for two days)
If you had a heart attack recently and your doctor wants you to be doing cardio-- why does he like the plan?? I'm not sure what to tell you here-- you can certainly use the workouts as guidelines, but they get pretty hard by Phase 3 (did doctor approve sprints??) and are a lot more time/effort than 30 minutes of low/moderate cardio. As long as doctor approves, I say do what feels right! You'll be robbing some of your muscle building fuel by doing the cardio, but if its low impact, I still think you'd be getting ahead.
OK so I want to try the Live Fit trainer again (didn't make it past week 5 last time)- my dr said it looks like a good plan because of the heart attack I had in September I need to be doing 30 min of low/moderate cardio 5 times a week... I know that Jamie says not to do cardio- what are everyone else's thoughts. I was thinking I could split up the sessions and do my weights in the evening and my cardio in the morning or vice versa so that it isn't too much. What do you think? I want to start today or next week but I know the longer I put it off the harder it will be to start.
