About Hello, I am Alex, I am a 27 year old Recreation Therapist in Minneapolis, MN. I have been a C5 incomplete quadriplegic for 10 years. I have had a great return of function since the onset of my injury. I can walk with a cane or forearm crutches, but use a wheelchair when at work and in the community for independence and to function better. I am obsessed with nutrition and exercise, and want to use this program to keep myself accountable. My goal is to work out a minimum of 5-6 days a week. My arms are the weakest part of my body. I have very limited tricep and shoulder strength, and my scaps tend to wing out
