Training basket for Stan Scott

  • Print

STAN SCOTT, 43,

Arm-wrestler, a director with the Manitoba Arm Wrestling Association, co-owner Daystar Associates (web development and technical support company), co-owner RTD Learning (online education facilitator)

Accomplishments: Born with cerebral palsy, which affects his balance, co-ordination and walking, Scott had got creative with his fitness. He began arm-wrestling 31/2 years ago because "it is a sport in which people of many ages and physical conditions can participate." Scott works out on his own and does weekly circuit training with fellow arm-wrestlers where they do strength-based activities such as climbing ropes and pulling sleds. He said it's made a big difference for him in not just staying active, but becoming fit.

"I'm probably in the best shape of my life right now," Scott said.

The Manitoba Arm Wrestling Association will be holding its Champion of the Table competition on Nov. 16 at Charlee's Restaurant and Lounge. Check out their website at www.manitobaarmwrestling.com.

1. Favourite workout?

My favourite workout exercise is definitely the pull-up/chin-up. It works your entire upper body as well as your endurance. It is amazing how difficult it can be to do more than two or three pull-ups when you first start.

2. Favourite workout song?

I am definitely still stuck in the '80s. Eye of the Tiger by Survivor has been my favourite workout song since I was a teenager. I think it's about time to update my playlist.

3. Fitness tip?

When it comes to fitness or anything else in my life, I've tried to live by the philosophy that we all should test our limitations before we accept them. This way there are no regrets.

4. What's in your fridge?

Greek yogurt and almond milk. I never thought I would enjoy almond milk as a dairy substitute, but the switch has been painless. Unfortunately, ice cream sneaks its way into the freezer far too often.

5. What's your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is definitely candy and potato chips. I cannot put a bag of salt-and-vinegar chips or Sour Patch Kids down without finishing the bag. Self-control goes out the window.
