Living Life In A Wheelchair

Conditioning Equipment For My Upper Body
[ Tuesday September 27th 2016 at 9:30 pm ]

Over the past few months I have begun getting to know the men who use the weight training equipment while I am in the swimming pool. It is impressive the amount of weight they are able to dead lift.

When I finished in the pool this evening the guys were using the conditioning center equipment. Apart from the pieces of equipment for hips and knees this is something I know very little about.

They showed me how to use a few pieces of equipment which strengthen the upper body. When I tried a few of these machines I was completely surprised how they didn't cause much pain in my hips or knees. I am willing to try. But I can't strain my body or I won't be able to engage in the activities necessary for day to day life.
