RA Guy’s Secret To Exercising With Rheumatoid Arthritis

RA Guy Adventures of RA Guy

On days like today, when the pain sometimes seems like it’s too much to handle even when I’m staying still, I’m always on the lookout for a good source of humor. I’m pleased to announce that I just found such a source…a source which gave me a good, hearty chuckle.

You see, I always thought that walkers were for individuals who had difficulty standing and moving around (much like myself, at the moment).

But I was wrong. Little did I know, but apparently these walkers can also double as a total home workout center. Twist a knob here, increase your biceps. Turn it on its side, do some push ups. Flatten it, rip your abs. And so on, and so on.

Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself. (And in case you’re wondering, yes this is a real product!)


Later this afternoon I had an appointment with my rheumatologist. In the meantime, I think I’ll work up a sweat by creating a workout routine with my mobility aids. I must be honest. I personally don’t own a walker…but after seeing the commercial above, I want to. Except I wouldn’t call it a walker…I’d call it “The Rack”.

Prednisone pounds beware!

Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!
