Snow Day 1

Burn Calories on a Snow Day

First snow day of the year! Not my favorite thing in the world; but it presents a great way to burn some calories using all kinds of different muscles. Go ahead get out there and have fun snow day with the kids; sledding and walking back up to the top of the hill is great for your quads, glutes and hamstrings. Make it more intense by giving the kids a ride up the hill on the sled. How about building a snowman or igloo fort or having a snow ball fight? Your core and upper body will get a great workout. If you are shoveling; remember it is a good idea to warm up before and stretch afterward, make sure you take a couple of breaks so you don’t over do it and be sure to stay hydrated. Enjoy the snow day – burn some calories and have some fun!

This is a great time saving move because you are working both your biceps and triceps in 1 combination move.  As an added bonus your hamstrings are also being challenged each time you hinge forward to complete the kickback portion of the exercise. Select a weight that is slightly lighter than you would usually use for a standard biceps curl. Be sure to watch the video for the correct form!
