I’ve been diligently exercising my arms the past two weeks. Ever since my mom and dad got me a hand bike, I’ve been trying to do at least 10 mins a day on it.
When I started almost 2 weeks ago. I couldn’t turn the pedal a full 360 degrees on my own. This was without resistance. So my aide had to assist me. I did that for two weeks. 10 to 15 mins with slight assistance to build strength and endurance.
To my pleasant surprise, I tried it turning it on my own today and I could do about 2 mins without any assitance. So I was able to complete my 10 mins in 2 mins intervals with some rest in between. Without any help! Woohoo! Exercise for the first time in a long while actually pays off.
