needing ideas for modifying the LHT - arthritic hands
I am just getting started on the fitness plan and really need some ideas. I had surgeries on both my wrists about 15 years ago and they are basically fused in neutral position at this point. There its no wrist movement up/down. So I cannot physically put my hands into a pushup or plank position. I Also have arthritic hands so I can't put my weight on my fist for pushups, planks. Right now I am managing ok with level 1 of pushups - against the wall, but I'm trying to figure out how I can physically modify the other levels. I figured there has to be at least a few people here with bad hands.... So what do you all do to modify? I have been lifting weights at the gym to compensate but I know its not the same because I'm not working my core muscles nearly as much.
