Circuit Resistance Training for Persons With Spinal Cord Injuries reviews how exercise-specifically, resistance training-can be employed to enhance the lifestyle of individuals living with spinal cord injuries. Unfortunately, many of the traditional upper-body exercise modalities for individuals with spinal cord injuries have serious limitations involving placing undue stress on the user's shoulders. The DVD features a series of resistance exercises that can be performed in circuit fashion and combined with low-resistance, arm ergometry exercises to collectively minimize the demands placed on the user's shoulders.

Among the topics covered:
  • The challenges facing individuals with spinal cord injuries
  • The spinal cord injury-related deficits and function-limiting adaptations that occur
  • Secondary disabilities suffered by individuals with spinal cord injuries
  • Health risks of persons with spinal cord injuries
  • Limitations of traditional upper-body exercise modalities
  • Circuit resistance training
