Exercise at Home with WheelPower
To mark Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day, we are releasing our new fitness video series delivered by Ben Clark, a personal trainer and owner of Adapt To Perform, the world's largest platform for adapted fitness. Ben, a C7 quadriplegic will guide you through several different types of workouts that can be done from home.
"I really try to adapt my workouts for all levels of ability and fitness and provide advice on making the workouts easier or tougher. And all my sessions come with a smile!"
Session 2: Core Workout
In this video we are going to be doing a core workout. To do this all you're going to need is a sofa cushion or something similar. But don't let the lack of weight fool you, this is still a tough workout but very beneficial!
If you do need to make this work harder that's easily done with something heavier to hold!
Session 1: No Equipment Cardio
In the first session we are doing a no equipment HIIT workout. Designed to get your heart rate up and to improve your cardiovascular endurance which is great for your wheelchair pushing efficiency.
What makes this session great is that you don't need any equipment and it can be done anywhere!
This is a beginner workout but can easily be made more difficult with a set of dumbbells (or equivalent) if you need to.
