    I was recently diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia. Yet I have a desire to box as an amateur. I have trained in the past in high school im 24 now.

    the cardiologist tells the arrhythmia required no treatment I could box if I wanted to.

    I can still work out pretty good.

    should I attempt to get back in the gym?

    My first response would be....Yes, of course. Working out or boxing is still very healthy for your body and especially for your heart if it's done in the right way. Nevertheless i'd visit a second or even a third doctor to let him check all the boxes and give you a detailed schedule how to train in the beginning. I think heart problems are no joke so i would be hesitant with the start and how to get back on track...but yeah, dude, of course you should get back in the gym - SOMEHOW. But of course safety first so go and visit a specialist for this kind of thing. You shouldn't just go back to the gym and falling into the old routine because that might be dangerous.

    If the cardiologist says you can then go for it.

    Yes. I think you should.
    Since you stated that you have a desire to do so.
    Then do it.
