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!
