    I've got to fat for my chair

    I am a T9 and I got hooked on ice cream and butter fingers for about a week and it now has showed up on my butt and legs. I was atrofied (sp) pretty bad for a while until this happened. Now I need to find a way to exercise to get it off. I am on a diet but without exercise I'm not going to get it off. I have started to do crunches and doing the best I can on sit ups on the bed.

    So now I'm asking if anyone knows an exercise to help me. Now take in consideration that I am a complete. I have a Clours chair that I have to get rid of

    Hi Mary....if you can, use a strap tied or looped at end of bed to help with sit ups. Use rope to pull yourself up. in your chair, use small hand weights, and do rotational trunk exercise. Hold arms out, and turn as far one way, then the other. Start with sets of 10, then increase weight, and reps as you get stronger. If you can, a variation on this is to sit up in bed, and reach down to touch toes with opposite side hand. Dont use weights for this.

    If you're looking for ways to work out, check out Wheelflex is a brand new product just about to hit the market for wheelchair users to work out. It attaches right to just about any chair. It is basically a pully system with adjustable tension from free pulling to a dead stop, and allows you to work out all upper body muscle groups. We were having trouble with the email link, so if you have questions and cannot contact through the website, email me directly at and I would be happpy to provide you with more information. Just put Wheelflex in the subject box so I know who you are, or else I'll probably delete the email without reading it. As a wheelchair user myself, I have found Wheelflex as a great way to work out and you don't even have to get out of the chair!
