The battle to find the adaption…

I’m always excited to find something new to try especially when there is an apparent (particularly on my part) requirement to have to adapt to make it work.

This is a fresh post as I got the chance to try some “battle ropes” for the first time at my gym this week.

I’ve decided to document this straight away as I want to use it as a marker and challenge to go through each stage of the adaptive process. You see, I wanted to give it a go but instantly knew I would have to work at this to make it better. See the video on this in my feed but I will need to experiment to make this exercise work.

There could be a thinking of well, let’s just find something else to use that fits better but I wanted to document this process of looking at things from multiple angles. I will struggle with that left side grip but already I’m trying to think of ways to use this rope differently….what about attaching it to my wrist? what can I use for this? Should I just use my right side, how can I use the rope in a different way??

Lots of questions and it will take a few attempts to get this working but I will give it a go and report back!

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
