Nstemi heart attack then CABG 5 months after

Hi there, my dad is 42, had a nstemi heart attack in may and had bypass surgery, no damage to heart as dad's heart muscle is strong from exercise, weight lifting etc. From August my dad went back gym, now is lifting heavy weight again and wanting doing 6 plate squat, 60 dumbbell press etc. Dad's very addicted to gym and weight lifting and wakes 4am in morning everyday to go gym. Can this lead to something dangerous, can a heart attack happen again and is this weightlifting going to negatively impact than do any good.

Sorry to hear this happened and hope his recovery continues.

He needs to consult his doctor/specialist.

That's all the medical advice anyone on here can give you.
