Regular exercise routine can bring huge health benefits…
Establishing a regular exercise routine can bring huge health benefits for everyone. However, for wheelchair users, it is even more important to get enough exercise. A sedentary lifestyle is known to be bad for your health, and unfortunately, a full-time wheelchair user has a totally sedentary lifestyle. Establishing a wheelchair exercise program is essential, and the Invictus Active Trainer makes this much easier.
Regular aerobic exercise can increase the functioning of your respiratory and cardiac functions. That means that both your lungs and heart can function better, so decreasing your chance of suffering a cardiovascular accident. Establishing a wheelchair exercise program means you are much less likely to have a heart attack or a stroke. Additionally, exercise helps you to maintain a healthy weight essential to prevent the development of Diabetes 2.
What’s more, regular exercise for a wheelchair user will also make you feel and look better. The flab will disappear, the unwanted pounds fall off, and you will build muscle. This also has great benefits in your day to day life. You will find pushing easier and you will have the muscle power and stamina to go further. Getting out and about more means that you are getting more exercise and enjoying life more.
Why choose the Invictus Active Trainer for your wheelchair exercise program?
The trainer gives you the way to get a really good aerobic workout using just your upper body. Simply roll yourself up the ramp and place your rear wheels onto the roller. Then push, just as you would normally. However, on the trainer, you only need to concentrate on pushing. You do not have to worry about road or weather conditions. You don’t need to look out for potholes or rough ground. All you have to do is concentrate on pushing.
As your condition improves you can increase the resistance of the rollers to give you a harder workout. To get the maximum benefit from an aerobic workout you want to aim to maintain your heart rate at 70% of its maximum capacity for a period of 30 to 40 minutes. To reduce your blood sugar and lower your cholesterol you should aim to do 40-minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, 3 to 4 times a week.
Aerobic exercise is often called ‘cardio’. Your heart is a muscle, and just like any other muscle, exercise improves its functioning. If your heart works better, more oxygen gets pumped around your body. Your lungs have to work harder and their capacity increases. In your lungs, the oxygen passes into your bloodstream and so circulates around your body. Getting life-giving oxygen in the blood to every part of your body is essential.
What is the difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercise?
‘Aerobic’ means ‘with oxygen’. You should aim to get your heart pumping faster and your breathing rate up to a level that you can sustain over a period of time. ‘Anaerobic’ exercise is when you work out intensely over a short period of time and increase your heart and breathing rates to their maximum.
Aerobic exercise is more effective at burning fat. This is because aerobic exercise delivers more oxygen to the muscles than aerobic. This extra oxygen consumes the denser fat, whereas with less oxygen the less dense carbohydrates are consumed. You will consume both fat and carbohydrates during any kind of exercise. However, if you really want to shed some pounds, an aerobic workout is best.
Remember, that a varied and healthy diet is also important. Cut down on your fat and sugar intake and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Combining exercise with a good diet is the most effective way to lose weight and to promote good health.
