Hello Emily Once cardiac rehab has been completed I would suggest joining a health club or the YMCA and continueing with the treadmill and recuse bike exersizes. Some minor strength exersizes are good but be sure not to put to much stress on. I would also suggest that the patient get a heart rate monitor for their workouts and keep their heart beat in a safe area and always have thier nitro tablets handy. All exersizes should gradually be increased as time goes on and its important to continue the exersize program religiously. I tell you these things from experience. Leon
