I like exercises that give me an aerobic upper body workout. My favorite upper body workout, hand weight walking, is currently somewhat hampered as my sore SI joint limits the length of my walks. My PT facility had a machine that allowed me to ride my arm, which I enjoyed and thought it would be nice to reproduce at home. My recumbent bike puts the pedals in a pretty ideal position when placed on your back. I tried it and got a good workout, but gripping the pedals with my hand wasn’t too comfortable. This was simply fixed with a dowel as shown in the pictures.

Unfortunately, the pedals are not too comfortable to hold in the hand

Simple fix, I just screwed a dowel to the bottom of the pedal, sticking out over the end so the dowel becomes the hand grip. The only problem is that it is not mounted concentrically to the axis of the pedal. So if you grip tight, it would rotate the wrist back and forth a little while pedaling. You can avoid this by gripping loosely and letting the pedal rock as you pedal, as you can see in the video.

I can do a nice upper body workout with this setup. I can just cruise at an easy pace or make it as hard as I want by doing some intervals. Here is a video showing arm cycling. This is now a pleasant addition to my upper body routine.
