Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of Aerobic Physical Activity on the function of the Autonomic System in patients after Myocardial Infarction or Stroke.

A secondary objective is to examine whether it is possible to predict which of the patients will most benefit from physical activity (exercise training), taking into account, genetic factors such as Polymorphism of ACE (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme)
