    Disabled Bodybuilders

    Disabled bodybuilders are often limited in the exercises we can perform and the programs we can follow. I've created a group on here for people with all kinds of disabilities to discuss their exercise issues and hopefully help one another to overcome them. I've searched on the forums and in the groups and there doesn't seem to be much information for disabled bodybuilders so hopefully this will rectify that. Everyone is welcome.

    If you would like to join, please search in the groups section for "Disabled Bodybuilders". Unfortunately I can't post a link because I'm newly registered.

    To be honest i dont see disability as a major issue in a way. Depedning on the disability an individual can still do most exercises just with an increased degree of difficulty. Theres also a guy at my gym that is disabled from the waist down and hes massivly strong.

    There's a guy in my gym who has a prosthetic left arm, yet he still does barbell bench press. For the most part, it's finding ways to get around the handicap and not letting it get the best of you

    Exactly; that's the message I want to send out with this group. There are a few sites for wheelchair users but I can't find anything for people with other disabilities where we can discuss how to get round particular obstacles and talk about our experiences.

    My shoulders are kinda messed up but I wouldn't call it disabled. People with disabilities who workout are true champions. Usually when stuff goes wrong in people's lives it's so easy to give up or just decide to drop most of your life. Having the mental ability to not let something get you down and still work around the disability always impresses me.

    props to you - guy at my gym has two lower leg prosthesis...kind where its a metal tongue looking thing that bends backwords. dude walks with a normal gait, kills it, does leg presses...awesome. I've always wanted to just walk up to the guy and tell him I admire him, but as much as I value privacy while working out, I don't want to bother him.
    O35 and enjoying life.

    Try lifting with one, then.

    Awesome thread

    My brother has cerebral palsy. I've set him up a beginner routine ICF 5x5 but left out deadlifts, squats, bent over rows and good mornings because he needs assistance walking and keeping his balance.


    We are limited with our equipment because it is a home gym.

    Any suggestions for working his back and lower body?

    He's learned how to count calories/bulking/cutting and has a general idea of what is needed to build strength .

    Hope this contributes to the thread!

    I have 2 hip replacements and 2 knee replacements and scoliosis. I want so badly to get on stage. I kill it in the gym. I can't do squats perfectly or dead lifts oh well. There's always an alternative exercise to work that muscle! The posing is painful though. I thought I could never accomplish the dream of competing but now I have the courage to.

    I had neuroblastoma (cancer of the spine) at the age of 1. I have had a total of 10 surgeries on my hip and leg, consequently I have had to wear a leg brace on my left leg for my entire life. I have recently been inspired by the world of bodybuilding, especially after reading Arnold's book 'The Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding'. I recommend that you read it. All my life, people have doubted me and told me what I cannot do. The only thing I have done is proved to them what I can do. I am currently in college and when I use my school gym, or any gym for that matter I find people constantly staring at me. It took a while for me to get over that because I am very self conscious about how I look. I am contemplating how much dedication I am willing to give to bodybuilding. One of the things I have thought about is that no matter how well I build up my body, I will always have a deformity with my leg which is why I completely understand that posing is very difficult for you. It is also very difficult for me as well, as I hate wearing shorts so I can avoid people staring at my leg. For the first time this past year I wore shorts when going out on campus, I realized that it's not worth worrying about something that I have no control over. With your heart, your mind and your drive you cannot be stopped. You can only go as for as you're willing to push yourself. On the days you cannot scrape up that motivation, remember the eye of the tiger and stare adversity dead in the eye until you make it look away forever. I wish good luck to everyone and hope you are successful in your endeavors. When I start making some more progress I will update my profile. Thanks and God bless.

    I have servere MS, I'm in a wheelchair. I go to the gym a few times per week. I can just about stand up with something to hold on to, so there are plenty of exercises I can do. The Smith machine helps.
    Never underestimate the positive effects of physical exercise on your mental health...

    Hi all.. Hope ur all doing ok. I had motorbike accident 23 years ago which left my left arm partly paralysed and my left leg knackered up with a bad limp.. I started training again last year with my bro.. He is s big bodybuilder and looks good.. I startd to get a good body under the circumstances ,.but in November last year I tore my left biscep Off the bone and 6 months on the sick. Back to work now and me bro thinks I sud start back on my training... But am 44 and afraid to train again lol pussy lol don't want to knack me arm up again... He says I shud just train light and get toned up.. Can u do this on light weights?? Only trained on heavy weights to bulk up..
