Increasing your upper body strength
Building up the strength of your arms
Wheelchair users depend on the strength of their arms to self-propel. Building up the strength of your arms will mean that you can push yourself further, with less effort, and also reduce the stress and strain on your body. Not only that, you will discover that with increased strength, daily tasks will also be easier. Transfers, bathing, using the toilet, and many other everyday activities will require less effort.
However, developing the muscles in your arms and increasing your upper body strength is not easy. The best type of wheelchair strength training is by using the Invictus Active training rollers. Simply place your rear wheels onto the rollers and push. Without having to concern yourself with external factors, like road and weather conditions, you can concentrate your entire focus on your pushing technique.
