Working towards a healthier heart physically and emotionally…

today s agenda
Today’s Agenda
  • Learning about Heart Health
  • How to apply this knowledge
heart wise program
Heart Wise Program

Why Heart Wise

  • Less than 50% of Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) patients continue to be sufficiently active after program completion
  • Up to 60% of patients post-cardiac event never attend CR

What Heart Wise Does

  • Encourages regular, daily aerobic exercise
  • Allows participants to exercise at a safe level & has progressive options to increase intensity if appropriate
  • Partnership between the YMCA and Toronto Rehab

  • After each set of slides, I will ask a multiple choice question to make sure you are paying attention….
  • On the count of three, show the number of fingers that corresponds to what you think is the correct answer
blood flow in the body
Blood Flow in the Body
  • Resting Heart Rate
  • Maximum Heart Rate
  • Blood Volume (1/11th)
  • Cardiac Output Q=SVxHR
  • Exercise Response
  • Stroke Volume
  • Cardiac Output

What statement is correct regarding the heart

1. Your blood is 1/8 of your body weight

2. Your heart has four chambers

3. Your resting heart rate is best measured 10 minutes after exercise

4. Heart is from the latin word Hiarta, meaning strong

heart incidents include
Heart Incidents Include:


  • Reduced blood flow in arteries of heart
  • Medication to increase supply or decrease demand (nitroglycerin, beta blockers)
  • Stent or Angioplasty
  • Coronary Artery
  • Bypass
heart incidents include1
Heart Incidents Include:

Heart Failure

  • Weakened Heart


  • Reduce Blood Pressure
  • Reduce Blood Volume
heart incidents include2
Heart Incidents Include:


  • Nerve signals to

Heart not consistent

  • Pace Maker
  • Cardiac



heart incidents include3
Heart Incidents Include:

Valvular Heart Disease

  • Problems with valves
  • Valvular surgery

A restricted blood flow to the arteries that supply blood to the heart is known as:

1. Valvular Heart Disease

2. Heart Failure

3. Angina

4. Arrythmia

Which of the following is not a risk factor for Heart Disease:

1. High HDL Cholesterol

2. Being of African American descent

3. Stress

4. Watching tv all day every day

drug therapy
Drug Therapy


  • Nitrates (vasodilation)
  • Antiplatelets (slow thrombosis)
  • Beta Blockers (dec HR)
  • Calcium Channel Blockers (electric)
  • Statins (decrease LDL)
exercise prescription fitt
Exercise Prescription - FITT
  • Frequency
    • 3-5 days per week
  • Intensity
    • Minimal level to induce training effect
    • Below threshold at which abnormal signs and symptoms develop
    • Development of a Threshold Heart Rate range with low and high end is useful for exercise progression
  • Type
    • Large muscle groups (walking, cycling, etc)
  • Time
    • 30-60 minutes per session
heart rate range
Heart Rate Range
  • Karvonen (HRR)

Lower THR = (peak HR – RHR)(0.6)+RHR



Upper THR = (peak HR-RHR)(0.8)+RHR



Heart Rate Range:110 bpm – 126 bpm

what to remember
What to Remember!
  • Heart Rate Guidelines
  • Medications
  • RPE & Symptoms
  • Progressive Disease
considerations for exercise
Considerations for Exercise
  • Large muscle groups exercised before smaller muscle groups
  • Complete repetitions rather than single maximum lifts (i.e. 1RMs)
  • Do not lift to the point of failure or to when a distinct Valsalva manoeuvre becomes necessary (usually at intensities higher than 80% of 1RM)
  • Progress loads according to patient ability either by an increase in reps OR weight, NEVER both
considerations for exercise1
Considerations for Exercise
  • Controlled movements with full ROM
  • Avoid straining or sustained tight gripping
  • Breath normally, no breath holding
  • Rest as needed, do not rush the ‘circuit’
  • Level of exertion should not exceed the level of recommended for aerobic exercise
  • Avoid overhead lifts, i.e. overhead press, military press
  • Stop exercising if warning signs or symptoms occur, especially dizziness, palpitations, undue shortness of breath or angina
  • Essential in order to see results in muscular strength and muscular endurance
  • Keeps you motivated
  • Adds variety to your work-out
how to progress
How to Progress
  • Should begin when you are able to perform 2 sets of 10 repetitions comfortably
  • Gradually increase the number of repetitions from 10 -15 (may take 2 to 3 weeks)
  • Then increase the weight by 2-5 lbs and reduce the repetitions back to 10
  • The last repetition of a set should not be any higher than 14 on the RPE scale
case studies
Case Studies

Role Play!

In your color groups, role play how you would work with the participant you are given.

case study no 1
Case Study No. 1

Name: Sally

Age: 65

Heart Incident : Angina attack, 6 weeks ago

Peak Heart Rate: 160

Resting Heart Rate: 55

Sally wants to join the YMCA and start taking a Walkfit Class. As her instructor, what recommendations and precautions do you have for Sally?

case study no 2
Case Study No. 2

Name: Robert

Age: 72
