However, if you are high risk--for example, if you have unstable angina (chest pain as a result of insufficient blood supply to the heart), uncontrolled high blood pressure, and/or severe left ventricular dysfunction (poor pumping ability of the heart)--the AHA recommends that you avoid strength training.

CAPR) said one-year results of the Phase 1 ALLSTAR (Allogeneic Heart Stem Cells to Achieve Myocardial Regeneration) clinical trial indicate that intracoronary injection of allogeneic cardiosphere-derived stem cells (CAP-1002) to achieve myocardial regeneration in patients with left ventricular dysfunction who have had an anterior myocardial infarction appears to be safe, with no deaths, no acute myocarditis and no major adverse cardiac events.
Left ventricular insufficiency can also develop related to right ventricular dysfunction and can be one of the causes for mortality.
