RA Guy’s Secret To Exercising With Rheumatoid Arthritis

RA Guy Adventures of RA Guy 9 Comments

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!

    LOL…too funny! And to think that the only thing I ever use my walker for is as an extra rolling chair for my drawing table when I’m too sore/lazy to roll my heavier computer chair over. Think I’ll start doing some chin ups with it tomorrow :p

    What a way to recycle a walker! Sure wish I felt up to throwing mine around like that!

    I need to drag out my walker and start exercising!

    Oh the great shape I’ll be in by summer — now where did I put my bikini??!! LOL

    Thanks for the laugh RA Guy!

    a regular sourcce of humor is essential. I depend on baby animals and my own stupidity.

    That is hysterical. We don’t have the Rack, but my husband has rolling and non rolling walkers. The rolling walkers come in handy for bringing in the groceries.
