Arm-Biking – BionicOldGuy

I like workout routines that permit me to get an cardio exercise with upper-body muscular tissues. 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.

Sadly, the pedals aren’t too snug to grip by hand
Simple Repair: I simply bolted a dowel to the underside of the pedal which stands out previous the top so the dowel turns into the hand grip. The one drawback is that it’s not mounted concentrically with the axis of the pedal. So if you happen to grip tightly this might be torquing the wrist backwards and forwards a bit whereas pedaling. That is prevented by gripping loosely and letting the pedal rock whereas pedaling, as you possibly can see within the video.

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.
