Hello, everybody. This is John Lewis. Right now we’re going to go over a great fitness plan after bypass surgery. The reason why we want to do this is because you want to make sure that you don’t over exert yourself while you are getting back into a fitness routine. What you want to do when you are coming off your bypass surgery first of all is make sure you are cleared by your doctor. That is probably the most important thing to this routine. Along with that you want to find yourself a nice treadmill that has an incline and decline button and what that does is that raises and lowers the treadmill as you are walking on the treadmill. Again, I want to emphasize that you are only walking while you are doing this. We don’t want to rush back after a bypass surgery. We want to ease into it and build your endurance as we go along. One thing you want to do when you are introducing yourself back into fitness off of a bypass surgery is once again you still want to make sure that you do get clearance from a doctor but you want to find yourself a stationary bike. What you want to do is you want to keep yourself at a moderate to lower level and this way you get to introduce your body back into a more rigorous routine. All you’re going to do is pedal very slowly and just get the heart rate up just a little bit. What this does is it makes the body get used to working out more and sweating.
