Q. My doctor advised me not to strain much. My doctor advised me not to strain much. What if I am physically unable to exercise due to a medical condition?

A. Your doctor is more concerned about your health. So accept his advice and improve in your health. There is virtually no medical condition that will keep you from doing any type of exercise. Even people with heart failure -- who were long told not to exercise at all -- can benefit from moderate amounts of activity.

Of course, if you have any medical condition, check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.
