My favourite upper-body exercise, strolling with hand weights is impaired considerably presently as a result of my sore SI joint limits the size of my walks. My PT facility had a machine that allowed me to arm-cycle which I loved, and I believed it could be good to breed this at residence. My recumbent train bike places the pedals in a reasonably splendid place when it’s laid on its again. I attempted it out and acquired exercise, however gripping the pedals by hand wasn’t too snug. This was simply fastened with a dowel, as proven within the photos.
I can get a pleasant upper-body exercise with this setup. I can simply cruise at a straightforward tempo or make it as exhausting as I need by throwing in some intervals. Right here is a video displaying arm biking. That is now an fulfilling addition to my upper-body routine.
