Without a doctor's approval, weight lifting can result in a heart attack. 

Medical professionals advise leading a balanced lifestyle, which includes good nutrition, rest, exercise, and positive social contacts, for a healthy heart. However, there has been an upsurge in heart disease cases in India, particularly among younger individuals. Concerns should be raised about reports of cardiac arrests and heart attacks when exercising.

Exercise may seem good for the body, but it’s not necessarily good for the heart. Exercises can be divided into two categories: those that are good for the heart and those that are not, according to Dr. Tapan Ghosh, Director and Head of cardiology and head of clinical research at Fortis Hospital Vasant Kunj.

Exercises with an equal distribution of muscle tone are referred to as isotonic. Exercises known as isometrics cause the muscle fibre to contract and the muscle tone to change, which can happen during intense weightlifting. According to Dr. Ghosh, this results in the heart muscle being thicker and a sudden rise in coronary requirements, such as oxygen, which increases the risk of heart attacks.

So what exactly are isotopic exercises? It involves cycling, swimming, jogging, and brisk walking. He continues, these are the heart-healthy workouts. Isometric exercises are advised against by experts.

A person’s exercise programme should consist of three phases: a warm-up, a pick, and a cool-down. These three stages should involve isotonic workouts. Dr. Ghosh adds, “A person should be hydrated, wear comfortable clothing, and they should feel free.” After calming down, one should perform a 10-minute warm-up activity. He advises you to move all of your joints and walk for 10 minutes at a reasonable pace. After that, pick up the pace for 20 minutes, like a brisk stroll. This exercise is known as the pick. After that, gradually slow down and continue walking for an additional 10 minutes at a slower speed. He explains that this is known as the cool-down period.

Dr. Ghosh suggests getting a prescription for exercise from a medical specialist, noting that many incidents of heart attacks are due to abrupt activities or unfamiliar exercises. A doctor should be consulted about this. Exercise must be controlled because it ultimately stresses the body. He claims that once it is controlled in a specific way, it can stop heart attacks.
