Accessibility workouts perfect for you!13 Mar
We want to make exercise as accessible as possible for everyone; we understand that it can be daunting coming into the gym if you use a wheelchair, and so we wanted to share some of the best exercises for you to try.
Improving your strength and core is essential as it can help with cardiovascular health, weight loss and improving mental health! It can also help improve your confidence, so here are some of our top exercises.
Depending on your ability to transfer onto equipment, you could give our chest press, seated tricep dips, and lateral pull-down machines ago. This could help you get started in the gym as the kit is a simple way to get to know fitness and exercises.
Free weights are the obvious go-to; they’re available and accessible to everyone and improve strength. Ensure you’re keeping yourself safe when handling the weights, but you can try various exercises by using free weights.
From your wheelchair, you can do:
- Clean and Press
- Bicep curls
- Arm raises
- Sidearm raises
- Hammer curls
If you can transfer quickly, why not try overhead presses and barbell presses.
