    I do 60 min. intense exercise on a recumbent bike 3 times a week. I’m 66 and cover approximately 19 miles and burn about 600 calories per session. Is this too much exercise for the heart. I feel just fine with no heart problems with me or genetically in the family.

      Hi Donald,

      Generally, the amount that you outlined seems like quite an impressive feat! However, as we are not doctors we do recommend you seek a response from your physician.
