Welcome one and all to my very first workout post. I will be doing this every week called Work Out Wednesday (W.O.W. for short). Being that I am nearly literally strapped to a chair all day, my workouts will be tailored for that. This is a journey and I have to start where I am at. Which is in a chair.
So I went to YouTube for videos, as I am a visual learner. I found a few good workouts one of which you can find here. YouTube is a fantastic resource where you can find any kind of workout for free. Seriously, it is a fantastic, free, and if you are just starting out you should totally give it a try.
While I am not able to run, or stretch, or warm up, I am able to do simple exercises with dumbbells in my chair. Don’t let your limitations limit you from doing what you can with what you have. Rock what you’ve got baby!
Here I am in all of my glory. Working out in a super comfortable automatic raising chair. And my too snug work out tank. I did a selection of the exercises from the above linked video for 3 sets of 10 reps each. I hope I can get to 20 reps by the time I am able to bear weight on my leg again in three weeks.
This brings me to my update: My leg is still broken and I am still not able to bear weight on my leg. What that means for me is I have to continue to live at my grandpas house so I can get to work and have help with Morgan. I was holding out some kind of hope that I would be cleared to go back home, but I need to keep my focus on the fact that this is temporary. My leg wont be broken forever.
So what are your workouts looking like this week? Please share some tips or pointers in the comments below. And as always, thanks for reading!
