Best fitness tips for disabled people

Enjoy Your Fitness ScheduleThere are many disabled persons and it is necessary for them to maintain a very healthy and fit lifestyle. Their physical shortcomings cannot pose a hindrance to enhance their physical strength and fitness. It is important to remember that any type of exercise will offer health benefits. Mobility issues inevitably make some types of exercise easier than others, but no matter your physical situation, you should aim to incorporate three different types of exercise into your routines:

Cardiovascular exercises

These can help to raise your heart rate and increase your endurance. These can include walking, running, cycling, dancing, tennis, swimming, water aerobics or aquajogging. Many people with mobility issues find exercising in water especially beneficial as it supports the body and reduces the risk of muscle or joint discomfort. Even if you’re confined to a chair or wheelchair, it’s still possible to perform cardiovascular exercise.

Strength training exercises

These involve using weights or other resistance to build muscle and bone mass, improve balance, and prevent falls. If you have limited mobility in your legs, your focus will be on upper body strength training. Similarly, if you have a shoulder injury, for example, your focus will be more on strength training your legs and abs.

Flexibility exercises
These help enhance your range of motion, prevent injury, and reduce pain and stiffness. These may include stretching exercises and yoga. Even if you have limited mobility in your legs, for example, you may still benefit from stretches and flexibility exercises to prevent or delay further muscle atrophy.
