I've heard that it's not a good idea to exercise if you have heart failure. Is that true?
Regular brisk exercise is a key component of managing heart failure.

This will improve their quality of life and help to optimize their blood pressure, glucose, and lipid values. There are increasing data that regular brisk exercise significantly reduces cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in people with normal and reduced heart muscle function.
