Result of Exercise
I started going the gym at our office twice a week from the beginning of this month, again. I guess that sometimes such a question, how a guy in a wheelchair can go to gym, comes up. But here, this kind of questions are not so important ... at least for me, and I don't have to give an answer, and I don't, this time.
So what I do in the gym is Aero-Bike, 20 min. There is a seat-type aero-bike at the gym, and I can use it. It's great fun to pedal them. One year ago I was used to do the pedaling with level 2 of 10. Then, I stopped going. So this time, I'm trying to put more loads and to increase the level of exercise. Right now, I'm at level 3 and go as far as 3km according to the gauge in 20 minutes, and moving toward level 4. Of course, my legs ache a bit, but it's fine to me.
And I already got one benefit from it. Where? It might be one thing that I should not say it in public or on Net, but it is in loo or rest room. You know? men have to keep standing for a while to do it. And I'm a man, so I do it. But while I'm doing it, I had felt not easy to hold the position and had to try not to collapse on the floor before doing the exercise. After I started that, some muscles have built up, and I started feeling my lower body to hold my upper body and feeling that I don't have to pay attention to my body position. I can relax a b it and feel good to ... to do it. After all, this might be one of the few things that only guys in wheelchair who can stand and walk a bit are able to feel after such exercise.
