    Exercise with Bicuspid Aortic Valve(BAV)

    I was recently made aware that I have BAV (probably since birth). The doctor said that functionality of the heart is normal with MILD regurgitation. ECG and Stress test was normal. I workout regularly, mainly heavy lifts on compound exercises, between 5-8 reps, depending on the exercise. After reading online I realize this might be a problem although my cardiologist said no lifestyle changes and to lower the weight so that I can do 10 reps without over doing it. I’m asking if anyone has experience working out with BAV and can offer advice. Thanks.
