Hi Welcome to,

Both aerobic and resistance exercises are recommended in patients with cardiovascular diseases. They help to control weight, strengthen the bones and muscles, increases insulin sensitivity.

Start with slow weights which you can tolerate. Define your limits. Do not over do. Do go for very high weights.
