Default General Health & Well Being

Someone asked me to put together a routine for them...He said that his doctor told him he need to start participating in some basic weight training. He can't push himself too hard, and can't do much cardio. He has a heart that's almost three times as large as an average person's. You can view the routine I desiqned for him below. If anyone has any suggestions, they are welcome.

I understand that the above routine is a traditional strength training routine, but all exercises, poundages, repititions and sets were modified to fit his individual needs. This individual had never trained before, and was not at all familiar with weights. I don't normally, promote the use of machines & cables (exclusively), but I believe this situation qualified as an exception to the rule.
