Wheelchair cardio exercises

Posted by: PFB

Q: I'm in the wheelchair. What cardio can I possibly do???

A: Through my own personal experience, here are some wheelchair exercises which are great for increasing the heart rate:

Wheelchair Basketball

Pushing yourself in the wheelchair

Hand Cycle Machine

Sitting on the floor peddling the bike with your hands


Recumbent Bike (depending on injury level)


Other advance techniques to get your heart rate up are doing super sets and combo sets while lifting weight. That way you are getting the benefits of muscle stimulation and cardio all at once.

Or any other activity that keeps you active just be creative.

Diet is extremely important to wheelchair users because we do not burn as many calories as somebody that is walking. Remember, you will not have to burn off certain calories and carbohydrates if you never consume them in the first place.
