jimmy rig

Trump has tweeted multiple times about the media rigging the election, and he’s right. From Day 1, the media has rigged this election in favor of Donald Trump. You cannot turn on the TV without seeing Trump. He’s like the GEICO gecko but more cartoonish.

I went to the gym with my mother today and realized her carpal tunnel syndrome impeded her from using a lot of her favorite machines, which required her to grip handles. We struggled to find a good compromise until I remembered the equipment used in spinal cord injury unit gyms for individuals who can no longer grip with their hands.

Unfortunately, the gym did not have this special equipment on hand, but they did have wrist guards. With some jimmy-rigging and serious trial and error, I secured the equipment handles with the excess wrist guard strap, allowing for my mother to operate the machines (similar set up as seen below).

Morals of the story? 

1- You can modify your workouts around your limitations

2- I am going to be an awesome physical therapist
