Thread: Exercises at home & facility .pdf

  1. #1

    Exercises at home & facility .pdf

    I have a 7 mb .pdf file of basic exercises for wheelchair users I scanned that I will upload to the site if the moderators are intetrested. The contents are:
    Program overview
    Exercises at Home
    Exercises at an exercise facility

    The exercises likely are not applicable to everyone, as we are all obviously at different physical and function levels. But, a good resource for those of us w less function.

    Liz, do it up! Your right, many people have much more limited abilities than others. I´ll sticky the .pdf file and keep it up top. Not for nothing but is it copyrighted? If it is, I may have to ask for permission first.

    You could just write

IT'S AN OPINION. IMPOSSIBLE IS NOT A DECLARATION. IT'S A DARE. IMPOSSIBLE IS POTENTIAL. IMPOSSIBLE IS TEMPORARY.

    The file is too big to upload it, I think you need moderator permission Mike, since ur one!. No, it is not copyrighted it was put together by those in the field who taught a class for pwd for something I won once. Just simple exercises for ppl in chairs, low function.

    Thumbs up exercize at home

    i'm a c-5/6 quad and got my Saratoga cycle the 1st of june.
    I use the handbike and a standing frame.
    I burn an average of 800 calories a day on the the handbike. I notice I sleep all the way through the night and my endurance has improved quite a bit.
    I bought the limited handgrips so i don't have to depend on anybody putting on the mitts. Man, I tell you I really love it.

    Thanks for scanning that! I never thought about using bands in some of those ways.
