Help PLease

Ok, so a buddy of mine, who has spina bifida, and is wheelchair bound wants to start lifing weights and eating right to lose weight and gain a little strength; however i’m not sure what kind of program to direct him towards, as I really have no idea what he should be doing considering his limitations. He really wants to lose his gut basically, with strength levels as his second priority. Any ideas or suggestions as to what kind of exercises he could do to reach these goals would be helpful.

Josher, I know you want to help and so do I, but please get some professional help on this one. I’d recommend a physical therapist (especially if he/she has a CSCS certification) over a personal trainer on this one. The potential repercussions are just too serious.

There isn’t any reason you can’t help him with his diet, though!!!

Good luck to both of you!!!
