Hang ropes with loops for handles. You can do wide or close arm pull ups. Find a bike path and ride hard, hit some hills that will make your arms two deadly monsters! Also if you had some one to help you put your legs up tere are plenty of ways to do push ups. And light benching. But be carefully. Start with just the bar. Good luck bud I will follow u and hope to hear you figure it all out. Fun thing about exercise is that it's always a learning experiance.

I like Corey's suggetions. Also from seeing my Uncle live his life in a chair, he got quite stiff and sore, so stretching is key (which he never did). Your request also got me thinking...you have lots of company out there so there must be good online ideas. A quick search found many, such as http://www.livestrong.com/article/157614-wheelchair-exercises/ God Bless and we look forward to updates.

What is wrong with your body that you are wheel chair bound? I am asking because that will be a limitation or an area to improve upon, but most importantly, it is a risk factor which makes some exercises dangerous for you. You don't want to be any more limited in your movement than you already are! 

Also, are you able to get out of the chair on your own and get back in? Can you stand, take steps, crawl or move in any way? Can you swim and do you have access to a swimming pool? If you can't swim, are you comfortable in water holding on to something?

I know that in your situation, the parts of your body that are underused/overused/misused/abused are your spine and your butt, and your legs depending on your condition. I would start there first. And I would try stretching first to test my flexibility and learn what my limits are.

Also, since the dynamic of your body is very different while you sit, some exercises might not affect the same muscles the same way as they would affect a "pedestrian". You might hurt yourself or blow things out of proportion and end up looking awkward. I would speak to my doctor about the specific exercises I want to do before actually attempting them.
