“Wheelchair Workout” – Joshua Myers, Adaptive Personal Trainer

August 27, 2013

Wheelchair Weight Training: 101 

Hi, I’m Joshua Myers, 2016 Paralympic hopeful & adaptive personal trainer.

In my previous Guest Authored Blog Post, I was asked to write about being a hero to others as well as to discuss my heroes like Anthony Robles & Rohan Murphy!

The response to that blog post was phenomenal – many thanks to everyone who took the time to read and to comment!

Additionally, I received several questions in regards to my workouts and what I do to train and stay fit.

Therefore, I asked Make A Hero if I could share some adaptive fitness knowledge with their passionate audience!

Although Cerebral Palsy has made it so that I spend much of my time in a wheelchair, while I’m lifting, as long as I have the assistance of a spotter, I am not completely confined to my chair.

I thought, however, I would take this opportunity to write a basic overview of weight training exercises along with a 12 week wheelchair workout program for those who are confined to a wheelchair.

Training and being physically active should be available to everyone, of all ability levels!
