I had a heart attack and I have three stents, can I practice Pilates?

Question: I would like to know if you can do Pilates after a heart attack and three stents. Salvador (Madrid).

Answer: There is no contraindication in performing physical exercise (nor pilates) after a heart attack, it is more often indicated. It all depends on the size of the infarction, the left ventricular function (pumping force of the heart) and if there is residual ischemia (that is, if there are clogged coronary arteries that have not been treated). If your heart after heart attack has a normal pumping force and all the arteries in your heart are 'open', there is no contraindication for physical exercise.
