Ex-heart cripple/researcher Pax Beale pioneered weight-resistance training as the #1 type of exercise for heart health, using himself as the guinea pig. His work is supported by recognition from a legal declaration, the U.S. patent office, and his medical records. Beale likes to call the Body For The Ages Nonprofit’s version of weight-resistance training an “angioplasty au natural,” and adds the idea that weight-resistance training having anything to do with angioplasty, a common medical procedure for the heart, is likely startling and requires explanation.
Beale’s findings are exemplified by the following: Take a 70-year-old who can’t touch their toes, and force them to do it with one effort. Ouch! However, if they practice 270 times a week, they will adjust to a toe touch. Take a 70-year-old and put a balloon in their artery and force the artery open with one effort (repetition or “rep”), which is what an angioplasty procedure does. No wonder many have to be redone. The pain can be initially masked by anesthesia. Worse yet, the artery can shrink back to its original size, so the doctor repeats the angioplasty, but even twice doesn’t expand the artery wall without a cost.
There is a reason the artery wall remains larger with only one or two angioplasty balloon expansions: you have to exceed the limits of elasticity of the artery wall, and create minor fissures in the artery wall. It’s similar to expanding a rubber band to its max, where you can see the fissures, and it rebounds slowly.
With angioplasty, ultimately the artery wall is forced open. The cost can be minor tissue tears, weakening of the tissue, and pain after the anesthesia wears off, from exceeding the limits of elasticity.
The balloon also impacts plaque on the wall of the artery, and the plaque can be compressed, but it would be presumptuous to assume there’s no pressure on the artery wa
