    Hello guys.
    Had acsending aortic aneurysm. They did surgery in Dec 2017 .Started strength training 1 year ago. It's been brought to my attention that might not be a good idea. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I think because the blood pressure rises when we try moving a heavy load? I've been training for a year and feel great, so i'm going to continue doing the program.
    Thank you for the input Rip.

    I seem to recall an early episode of Starting Strength where a heart surgeon explained that the most stress your heart will ever be under is on his table. If you survived that, his opinion was train away.

    starting strength coach development program
    I was born with a bicuspid aortic valve and it combined with training ( possibly that is theory) created an aneurysm in my aortic root

    I had a porcine aortic valve replacement and my aortic root and some of the arch replaced

    Been training for 3 years since my surgeon told me I have no restrictions Iím 68

    You canít really get a straight answer from most of the medical community IMO they just donít know and are afraid to commit with a firm opinion
