The general rule of thumb regarding exercise and muscle disease, is to stay physically active and to exercise - but not to the point of muscle fatigue.
Most important excercise is to keep your respiratory muscles in-tone, talk to a lung doctor to see if you can do pulmonary function tests, and go to pulmonary rehab. This will help prevent long term items like pneumonia.
