Arm-Biking – BionicOldGuy

I like workouts that enable me to get an cardio exercise with upper-body muscle mass. My favourite upper-body exercise, strolling with hand weights is impaired considerably at present 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 believed it will be good to breed this at house. My recumbent train bike places the pedals in a reasonably very best place when it’s laid on its again. I attempted it out and acquired a great exercise, however gripping the pedals by hand wasn’t too snug. This was simply fastened with a dowel, as proven within the photos.

Sadly, the pedals aren’t too snug to grip by hand
Simple Repair: I simply bolted a dowel to the underside of the pedal which stands proud previous the top so the dowel turns into the hand grip. The one drawback is that it’s not mounted concentrically with the axis of the pedal. So in case you grip tightly this could be torquing the wrist forwards and backwards 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 simple tempo or make it as onerous as I would like by throwing in some intervals. Right here is a video displaying arm biking. That is now an gratifying addition to my upper-body routine.
