What are some tips for exercising if you have a permanent disability that effects mobility (running, walking, biking)?

I have seen exercise programs on tv for chair exercises. I don't know if that will help or interest? Could walking or swimming be an option? Maybe see if your closest arena/pool/disability programs have a recreational therapist? They are often fantastic. I hope that you find something that works for you 😊 tons of support!

If you are unable to do any physical exercise, then it’s better avoid it.But you can do yoga,some light exercises like taking stairs instead of elevator,

Strenght training can burn enough fat because your body consumes a lot of energy to restore and more muscle also means you use more energy, even in rest a bodybuilder will consume up to 10 times more calories than an average person. If you still want to build some stamine try high reps excercises with small weight. Depending on how bad you disability is you can even try wheelchair sports like basketball.

If you cannot run, then walk. If you cannot walk, then crawl. If you cannot crawl, then drag. Do whatever it takes to achieve what you deeply desire.

Well I would first need to know what the disability is but from the brief description that I have, it seems that it may be that you may not have full use of your legs. While I am no expert, I would suggest focusing on the areas of your body that you do have full mobility. You can of course work on your upper body and core but I also think it is important to understand and act on the fact that we are not just physical human beings. Our minds are also (and maybe more importantly) muscles that need to be exercised.
I’m sure that may be difficult to hear when all you want to do is get out and run but it is the truth. With that all said, I have always been a huge fan of calisthenics. We all have different bodies and it is important to understand how they work. I hope this was helpful. Even in the smallest way. If not, happy to talk more about it. Best of luck!

1. Mindset: focus on what's possible and make sure to identify and question any assumptions you have. 2. Identify the purpose of exercise to you, and an easy way to tell if that purpose is achieved or not. 3. Google search for exercises for people with your disability.
