you are easily winded because your cardio-vascular sytem needs to be built up. Walking is best then, progress to a light jog after a few weeks, and finally months down the road if you feel ready you can run. Water aerobics and swimming are also very nice and if you suffer from joint pains will help take some of the stress off them while getting your aerobic cardio exercise.

I was just recently told I have thickening of the bottom part of my heart. I have done boxing and kick boxing now 4 yrs. but I had to stop because I was so winded. I have shortness of breath still, very tired most of the time. I am 66 yr old female My Dr. gave me Ranexa. Alsoamlodipine 5 mg. to keep my blood pressure from spiking. I did a circuit work out this a.m. And it was very hard for me to get through it. I am so used to exercising and I very disappointed. I also take metropolol and lisinplri. What kind of exercise would you reckon?
