Video: Yard Work-out

If you find it difficult to make time to get the movement that your body requires, I suggest using yard work as a way to move more and have fun while you do it!

With a few modifications, yard work can be one of the best workouts you can do. It naturally has opportunities to squat, bend, lift, pull and carry. And if you follow my lead, you can add in a few extra movements like lunges, toe touches, torso twists, push-ups and even a few Jedi-like moves.

Choosing movements that have a purpose beyond simply “getting some exercise” can be easier to fit into your day, often because they can take place outside of your dedicated exercise time (which is a relatively small portion of your day).

So, I suggest you use this video as inspiration for your yard work but also look for opportunities while doing other chores to get more movement into your life! It’s a fun way to get and stay fit.
