Forget the Gym, Garden Instead

Are you bored with your summer workout routine?  Install a garden as part of your backyard landscape.  Why?  Gardening is just like going to the gym.  Some interesting comparisons:

  • Turning compost is like lifting weights.
  • Raking is like using the rowing machine.
  • Pushing a mower is like walking on a treadmill

Looking at specific calorie burn, a half an hour of digging burns 150 calories, raking a lawn burns 120 calories and pushing a lown mower burns 165 calories. 

So lets get gardening!
