If you have unifocal PVCs can you work out?

I have PVCs and I was wondering if working out (running long distance, lifting weights ect) can effect the PVCs or if it could possibly be a risk factor?

The best thing to do, is get the PVC's checked out by a cardiologist. If they are benign then all the Dr.'s have told me they are not going to do any harm. I was in the ER(only once) and was having bigemini PVC's for the entire 4 hours I was there, with no break in that rhythem. The Dr told me my heart could beat like that for every and never do any harm. I can't say I believe that but thats what they told me. They told me to take some toprol when I got home.

I'm with artskip.  Once you have been cleared by a doctor and know the pvcs are benign (they usually are), you're all set to exercise.

I've had pvcs in the tens of thousands per day (multifocal) and I had no restrictions on exercise.

Let us know what the doctor says...

I'm constantly amazed by some of the numbers of pvc's that some people on this forum say they experience.  I wore a Holter on a moderately bad pvc day for me, and the EP told me the monitor recorded 58 premature beats.  To experience 10,000 pvc's in a day - what's that like?  That must feel like every beat is a pvc.  If you get 10,000 pvc's a day - the kind that you feel, the "squeeze" sensation - and you can live with that, my hat's off to you.  That's some strong willpower.  I wish I had a tiny fraction of your coping skills.

It's all relative. I used to freak out when I had PVC's for a few hours. I'd think it was so bad, little did I know what was to be for me. On a bad day now I must have tens of thousands,today is a real bad day with lots of pain with the PVC's. In a way I have given up on every having any peace from them. Then I guess I snap out of it and think maybe tommorow is the day they will just go away. I don't know if it's will power, or what choice do I have?
Not sure if he's my candidate,but cool pic!!
