Just today alone, I've read two articles about obesity in America. It's no secret Americans tend to be overweight. This unfortunately tends to be the case of wheelchair users and those living with paralysis as well. Here's a story of a wheelchair body builder who takes his work out to the next level.
Scott was at a turning point. He needed something, but what? As a football player, he was always comfortable in the weight room. So, doctors assigned him a workout load, he triple it.
