Here I am cycling with my brand new Rehab Trainer!
The purpose of cycling is to increase my heart and respiratory rates. As well, it stretches out the contractures in my elbows.
The feeling is the same as an intensive work out. There is pain in my neck, elbows and scapula (shoulder blades). But oh, so worth it! I just love to physically work hard and energize my body and spirits!
I immediately get into the rhythm of the rotating handlebars and the beat of the music!
My biggest challenge is to reserve my energy and strength for the home stretch. I always want to give it all I’ve got right from the get-go! But then, I invariably run out of steam too early.
As it happens, this video was taken the first time I used the “Cycling Monster”. That time, I was able to sustain cycling for four minutes. The second time, I skyrocketed to 10 minutes. I’m presently at 12 minutes!
The rest of the day that I’ve used it, and the following day, I get some significant aching/pain.
But the gain greatly outweighs the pain!
Now – ENJOY THE SHOW!
