Good need-to-know information, thanks!
I always listen to my body when doing exercises, and if it seems to be too much, I rest. But never quit.
Thank you for this. I am affected by spinal injury and fibromyalgia, and while I know I need to move, it can prove difficult. There are ways here I can do it!
Exercise is a must for normal and disables people. I think this article has everything that is needed for a disabled person. The biggest problem with disabled people is their mobility problem and for that, they need some best power wheelchair brands and mobility scooters. Here is an article very useful for disable people https://www.drugsbanks.com/best-power-whee
Thank you. Some of these I can do.
Thank you for including people with disabilities and differing abilities to your site. I have 8 chronic pain and fatigue conditions, as well as 2 conditions that make eating right a struggle. So getting into shape is an uphill battle, but I’m still fighting. Warrior to the end!
Thank you. I do have a disability, but I have learned to work around it, do what I can....and I do have a home gym. Good article!
Thanks for the information
