He was tired of delaying his goals, and bodybuilding was top priority now. After hearing what Washington had overcome the past few months, Chandler understood how serious he was. He started taking himself seriously and he wanted to be there for his family. It broke my heart. Washington emailed everything he could find about his condition to Chandler. With more knowledge, Chandler formulated his diet and training routine. Ducena recorded trainings while BJ, who also has cerebral palsy and scoliosis, cheered her husband on, which inspired her enough to begin working out as well.
Meanwhile, Chandler scoured the internet for competitions. Chandler noticed the adaptive divisions , where contestants with a prosthetics device, loss of limb or a disability could compete. With a little more research, Chandler discovered the Formulation 1 Nutrition Classic and was elated to learn there was a category in which Washington fit the criteria.
Washington received the news that he would be competing in the classic, his first bodybuilding competition. They began a rigorous training routine at least two to three times a week, and adjusting the way Washington ate. As the competition neared, Washington added classes that would help him learn to pose like the professionals. When competition rolled around, Washington was ready.

He confidently walked to center stage in front of thousands who cheered him on. By the end, he had taken home the medal and achieved his status as the first bodybuilder to win in his division.

Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. In the last decade the concept of neuroplasticity has gained momentum in the scientific community. Scientists are developing new ways of helping brain-injured children and adults recover lost functions. This book is interesting in its own right and applicable to improving the health and well-being of all people beyond just the special needs communities.
It offers a history on Ms. She includes several case studies and testimonials about children with special needs and their families who she has worked with at her center. I appreciate the humility and care Ms. Sumar took in putting this resource together so that it is easily understood and relatable. There is good information and descriptions detailing how you may start a home program with your child.
I think it would be helpful for the parent or person who wishes to pursue a home-based program to at least take a series of introductory yoga classes. There a few contraindications listed for beginning a home program. In those cases she states that it is imperative to consult with an experienced practitioner since there are some yoga poses which may exacerbate certain conditions. I value this work for the information it offers about the broad range of effective treatments parents do not typically hear about for CP.
I also appreciate the honesty with which it is written. I think it makes it easier for other parents to express their own insecurities, fears, and challenges when they hear a powerful parent being candid about her own. Many people may not have the financial means to participate in the world of alternative treatments to the degree found in this book. However, it still creates awareness and offers an alternative path for approaching healing and treatment programs for children with CP.
