Today I am sharing with you all a Vlog from the gym.
I don't always go to the gym, but I do my best to go especially when I notice that I am beginning to have less endurance or difficulties with transferring to and out of the wheelchair.
I'd like to mention that I am not a physical therapist and neither am I a personal trainer, but I hope that you guys enjoy this Vlog of me in the Gym. I hope this video helps any wheelchair user out there wondering what exercises to do in the Gym. As I mentioned before, I'm not an expert but doing some of the exercises shown in this video help me build strength and maintain my body weight.
While weight loss is a great reward for going to the gym, it's hardly ever my focus because I know that dieting is a big part of weight loss.
However, getting your body moving and ensuring that you're flexible and have good blood flow/circulation is a MAJOR part when you're a wheelchair user.
Personally, I enjoy being independent and being able to do just about everything I want to do despite "the wheelchair".
I had to learn to do certain things differently since I don't have full muscle control/use, and my balance is still kind of OFF. I also get help from the really big guys at my gym for certain transfers I can't do by myself.
I won't give everything away by typing too much.... so lets get into the video.
I hope you guys enjoyed this video,
Please feel free to ask questions you may have.
Thanks for visiting, God Bless.
