When leukemia or cancer hits us, athletes, it's a vicious one-two punch.
First, leukemia and other cancers cause losses of strength and endurance. Chemo adds insult to malady causing more of the same.
Then, further treatments often depress immune function for months on end, and sometimes years. This means no indoor gym time because indoor gyms with AC are breeding ground for opportunistic infections.
Outdoor gyms are fine but seldom offer heavy stuff to lift and carry.
And that's how I got an idea: why not set a "loaded carry outdoor gym" to share with my fellow leukemia/cancer fighters and survivors who can go out but can't hit the gym?
A "starter kit" for a leukemia/cancer outdoor gym, selected from a cheap but reliable supplier (https://www.strengthshop.de) that ships in Sweden would include a Trap Bar, a Prowler, a 12-meter rope and 200kg of assorted plates. The order with estimated shipping cost would be 1.237€ which is 13.000 SEK as of today (picture below).
Under normal circumstances, I'd take the time to build that special home gym with regular savings buying one thing at a time, etc. But, well, let's not sugarcoat it, I may not have that kind of time so I'm asking you instead. ￼
