Snow Shoveling for Cardio

by Robert Maxwell

Cardio often gets a bad rap for as the boring type of exercise, and sometimes that's true. Hours sweating on a treadmill isn't my idea of a captivating workout, but cardio doesn't have to be so repetitive. Check out my video on turning everyday tasks like shoveling snow into interesting, high intensity cardio sessions.

    Right on! Fitness through purposeful, useful work has long been my aim. Your snow shovelling is a minor variation on the technique I adopted in my 20s -- back on the homestead. I discovered a small but rugged plastic Butler snow shovel that I used to become a "human snowblower" by vigorously taking sweeping bites from even deep snow. Each sweep ended with flinging the snow well off the path. Moving rhythmically and continuously in this way, I became a snow-throwing machine and definitely got a cardio workout. It still works in my 70s!
