Shoveling the Fat Away

January 8, 2011

This is a guest post by Nicolas D’Alleva.

While in the midst of the winter season, snowstorms or other problems that Mother Nature could cause may get in the way of your daily workout. Take advantage of the winter. There are ways right around your house to get a great work out when stuck in due to bad weather.

Three great ways to get a workout in the snow are:

  1. Shovel the fat away: Shoveling is a great way to start your day. Instead of your normal morning workout, get a shovel out and clear your driveway. Maybe even offer to shovel a neighbor’s driveway too. Shoveling gets all your arm and leg muscles working. It is an intense work out that will help speed up your heart rate and burn the calories you want gone. But remember to use your legs so you don’t hurt your back.
  2. Take a jog in the snow: Running and jogging in the snow gives you a great work out. It takes more energy for you to move your legs in the snow allowing you to burn more calories and shed that fat. Please make sure that the snow is soft and light. The last thing you want to do is slip and fall on ice while out on a run.
  3. Exercise never goes out of style: Get out those old workout tapes and put them to good use. Sure the trainers may wear some out of date clothes, but the exercises still help you tone up and lose weight. You’ll even get a kick out of the things you used to do and wear to work out. Relive your glory days and exercise while doing it.

So when the bad weather starts to get you down, remember that there are still plenty of things you can do to get your workout. This is the only time of the year that you’ll be able to do some of them. Take advantage of that and start shoveling your fat away.
