    Default Aortic aneurysm question

    My father dropped dead a week ago from an aortic aneurysm at age 65. It was a complete and total shock. I am my father's son, and probably have to watch out for this later in life, I am 36 now.

    I feel that in this area, Kettlebell training will either make the problem better or worse. I know that the training, swings and snatches in particular, will increase my cardiovascular strength. I just don't want to overload my cardiovascular system to a point where I may cause an aneurysm.

    Any opinions?

    See a doctor first, if you have any concerns. Let him/her make a qualified assesment before you decide anything or start any program.

    All of our deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your Dad. Reminds a lot of us to be especially thankful this week for what we have, the time to enjoy it, and the ones we can share it with.

    Baederp,

    I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences go out to you and your family. I will say a prayer for you. I would say that KB ballistics + grinds combined in a system such as ETK would probably be a great deterent for you (in other words make you healthier). BUT of course check w/ DOC first.

    Default Aortic aneurysm question

    An aortic aneurysm is an easy enough anomaly for your doctor to find during a routine checkup, and they tend to build up over time. Years in some cases. You can express your concern and have him take a closer look, but they aren't a hereditary condition, other than being associated with high blood pressure. Keep an eye on your BP and make sure your mineral supplements contain copper, which strengthens the arterial walls.

    My condolences on your Father's death my thoughts and prayer go out to your family.

    Your question on training and an aortic aneurysm is one for your Dr./cardiologist and a cat scan or other test to evaluate your risk.

    Keep us posted after speaking to your Dr.
