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!
