My fourth workout with In Bed Med Recovery/ Stuck In Bed Fitness was on the Strong Man version of the device. This time I did eight different exercises, none of which I had tried previously. I started with hammer curls using the therapy bands from the base, giving me twenty pounds of resistance in each hand. I then moved on to reverse curls, also with the same bands which worked my biceps, forearms, and shoulders as well. And then I did leg raises. I held onto the sixty pound resistance cord triple grip handles while doing seated knee raises, three sets of ten. I thought I was going to die. This was especially challenging for me due to my weight but I can see how even a pregnant woman on bedrest could benefit from these exercises as my abs and quads are really feeling good now. Then I did forearm curls which wasn’t as challenging so I was able to do more reps and it gave me a cardio workout as well. I then proceeded to do uppercut punches using the twenty pound resistance cords and then I moved to jabs which were a jab/ overhand combination— a boxing style cardio workout. I pulled down the sixty pound resistance cords and held them by my shoulders for a count of ten seconds— that was seriously challenging and I concentrated on my breathing— in and out! I then worked my shoulders at the end with the therapy/yoga/pilates bands, again holding for a count of ten seconds with my hands directly in front of my shoulders, elbows locked.
Another great workout with In Bed Med Recovery/ Stuck In Bed Fitness, the ultimate in fitness and therapy experience from a bed, wheelchair, or even recliner.
