Arm-Biking – BionicOldGuy

I like workouts that permit me to get an cardio exercise with upper-body muscle tissue. My favourite upper-body exercise, strolling with hand weights is impaired considerably at the moment as a result of my sore SI joint limits the size of my walks. My PT facility had a machine that allowed me to arm-cycle which I loved, and I assumed it could be good to breed this at residence. My recumbent train bike places the pedals in a fairly best place when it’s laid on its again. I attempted it out and bought an excellent exercise, however gripping the pedals by hand wasn’t too comfy. This was simply fastened with a dowel, as proven within the photos.

Simple Repair: I simply bolted a dowel to the underside of the pedal which stands out previous the top so the dowel turns into the hand grip. The one downside is that it isn’t mounted concentrically with the axis of the pedal. So for those who grip tightly this is able to be torquing the wrist backwards and forwards a bit whereas pedaling. That is prevented by gripping loosely and letting the pedal rock whereas pedaling, as you may see within the video.

I can get a pleasant upper-body exercise with this setup. I can simply cruise at a straightforward tempo or make it as onerous as I need by throwing in some intervals. Right here is a video exhibiting arm biking. That is now an pleasurable addition to my upper-body routine.
