    Talking Disabled Bodybuilding

    I am looking into why the only disabled bodybuilding comps are wheelchair based. I am disabled but I dont use a wheelchair and would like to compete in the future. I cant train my legs so I obviously concentrate on my upper body.

    Are there any others out there who are having the same thoughts??????

    Would it be worth swapping ideas or am I flogging a dead horse?

    Nothing against or anything meant towards other bodybuilders abled bodied or wheelchair based

    Cheers

    Shane

    Thumbs up Wow! good to see im not the only one

    hey, I hear you on this one. I want nothing more than to compete in figure but I dont think I will ever be able to achive symmetry in my legs. Disabilities come in all forms, I am not in a wheelchair, but still considered disabled. Not enough for a wheelchair but not ok enough to compete in a normal competition. This gets no consideration, not even from my medical insurance company! So I am caught in between too.

    It would be nice if there was a competition where they could just ignore whatever part of you was disabled in judging(with proper doctors note of course!) but it would be too easy to take advantage of I think.
    Probably flogging the horse but if you have friends in the right places sometimes you can make a change.

    -Dee: Not one of those things sounds right to me. At all.
