    well,thanks to all of you about giving such beneficial comments.specially chicks,your ideas r really good.i do have wrist movementin one direction and is working on shoulder and biceps to make them strong.

    If u have wrist movement in one direction u should be a C6 and transfers are very possible. The muscles involved in transfers for C6 are mostly latissimus dorsi or lats, pecs (chest muscles) n scapula ( the shoulder shrugging motion)
    here's a vid of myself transferring, i hope you can see it properly cos i dont know how to flip the vidio

    im now workin on my car transfer but have lots of problems with leg managment

    n for high level quad transfers u really have to work on ur balance cos thats the key. good luck
