A Smal Change

 When it was regarding this, I wanted to do a quick podcast and blog at the same time using Recording. So that I could actually be more productive and make sure that I have enough time for everything else throughout the day.

I wanted to talk about how things have really changed for me regarding things because life is a lot harder having any disability such as cerebral palsy which I have.

I also wanted to talk about how things have changed for me recently, as this is a general post for this week and I wanted to make sure that it was clear that I was talking about the changes for me. That's why it changes for me, at least. So I had started with Herbalife a while back. which is in Three Weeks With Herbalife. And I will be putting a stronger, more impactful post about that in the future.

Another one was to do with the way that exercises are to do with me as well. Which I've also mentioned. So my goodness. What a change, things have been. After a year of trying to get anxiety out of my situation and just living through a pandemic and a move, I felt better just living and trying to de-stress throughout that entire time. 

During that time I found that Fitbit was actually able to do exercises on top for disabled people now rather than just able people. So I have been doing a few of those exercises and made them my favourites on the app which you can get from Google Play and Apple iOS. 

And they will be put out on another exercise post that will connect to the original one that was done during the pandemic. Which is here exercise or no exercise. Here in the UK, we are coming out of the pandemic and back to almost normality.

Exercises or No Exercises That is the question?

 We are still in lockdown here in the UK and life has started to be a norm now. But is it going to be staying forever? Spring is also a couple of months away so making exercise difficult for anyone who is disabled.

I am not a professional instructor however being a person with cerebral palsy the following is a set of exercises that I use myself to help maintain my level of agility. Despite having the condition.

Please remember to consult your consultant and physiotherapist to ensure that these exercises are good for your own body.

The whole situation of the virus is making things very difficult.
Because of those of us who can walk even a little bit.

Physiotherapy is a must even the littlest bit of stretching and movement is important especially as staying indoors limits the amount of exercise we can do. Simple exercises such as the bridge.

  1. Lie flat on your back with your legs bent and your feet flat on the floor and hip-width apart, arms by your sides.
  2. Push your heels into the floor as you lift your pelvis off the floor until your upper body and thighs form a straight line.
  3. Do this about 20 times slowly, as you can damage your hips and pelvis.

This exercise can be done on the floor or on your bed if it is a firm one.

It is a great exercise if you do it carefully as it strengthens your core muscles as well as ensuring that your pelvis and bladder are strong. Making mishaps less evident. Here is a video of some tummy exercises that can help you stay safe doing them.

Another simple exercise you can do even sitting in a chair. And that is to squeeze your butt muscles. It's called The butt clench and below is a video that shows how you can do the exercise.

And do this as often as you can. For as long as you can.

A good thing to do when you can pull your tummy muscles in for as long as you can.

If you combine the tummy pull in and use the butt clench together you can improve your posture.

Please remember to consult your consultant and physiotherapist to ensure that these exercises are good for your own body.

The following video is by Kym Perfetto KYM NONSTOP. It is a full upper body exercise routine lasting 10 minutes.

which I think is great for the upper body even if you are in a wheelchair.

She has several videos catered for disabled people. Particularly for wheelchair users, amputees and injured people

Having a mild form of cerebral palsy I like to ensure that I am agile for as long as possible. Before I have to sit in a wheelchair permanently. Yet I won’t discount a wheelchair in the future when my body insists. So exercising is a good way of maintaining the memory for muscles to keep their tone for longer.

Please remember to consult your consultant and physiotherapist to ensure that these exercises are good for your own body.

Because I do not want to cause you any injury. But I do want you to be healthy and fit.

If you do find other videos with good exercises for people who have cerebral palsy. Then let me know if they are any good.

Love and Peace.

Fresh chapters with cp.
