Re: How long to recover from a calf heart attack [Just Old Again]

Thanks. Any thought on how biking impacts the healing process. I'm still biking and swimming and it doesn't seem to bother it. I'm assuming it helps with blood flow.

Blood flow is key. I've always found that cycling really doesn't use the calves much (assuming your seat isn't too high) unless you do a lot of climbing, so it shouldn't be an issue. Same with swimming.

According to some research from Associate Professor Jim Martin at the University of Utah the calf muscles were the first to fatigue during cycling. They were affected by fatigue before the quads & glutes. I know it sounds strange. I was kind of surprised too.
