(HealthDay News) -- Having a heart attack shouldn't put an end to an active lifestyle.
The American Heart Association offers these guidelines for when you resume exercise:
Exercise only if your doctor says it's safe.
Begin each workout with a gentle warm-up and end with a cool-down.
Monitor the intensity of your activity, making sure it's within the recommended range.
Monitor your heart rate and blood pressure.
Be aware of warning signs that you're pushing yourself too hard, including chest pain, lightheadedness or feeling out of breath.
