    These videos have been useful for me to help my younger sister workout. Thanks for making them!

  8. These moves are ok but you really need to work on abdominal part as it droops over time. As a paraplegic l know that it is the most difficult part to handle. I would love to see if you have any tricks in order to prevent this prolapse.

    This is cool because is hard trying to workout when we’re in a disabled state with our body. Really hinders what we can do but this is helpful

    Yes, keeping active when you have a physical injury or disability helps the body stay flexible. Not working out makes the muscles tightened up making mobility more difficult. You also slow down the progress of arthritis in your joints and help your circulation stay flowing. Good workout man. ☺

    Great Video, Cool tip on keeping the bar low.

  13. I have to say as a Low Quad and an Ex body builder. Your completely backwards on what muscle groups your working. As pushing in a wheelchair your constantly using, deltoid, Traps, Infaruspinatus, Teres Major, and Triceps if you have them. your working chest and front front and Anterior Deltoid in most your begening lifts.
