Definitely work with your physician. He/she may even recommend working with a physical therapist who can help you develop a plan to safely strength train with your physical limitations.

I agree that asking your doc for guidance on the best way to proceed is the safest idea.

Good luck,

I think that's a question best asked of your cardiologist!

due to a bad heart my cardiologist has put me on a restriction of 20 pounds. NO lifting, pushing, pulling. My question is should I do pyramid lifting and increase the reps.? Does any one else have these types of restrictions and how do you work around them?
