Did you know gardening is a good form of exercise? Most people think of walking, running, or swimming when they are trying to lower their weight or improve their health. Gardening can provide a full body workout. Racking, hoeing, and sweeping will give a person a good aerobic exertion. Digging and lifting will challenge the large muscles, such as the legs, back and chest. A person will experience a greater chance of weight loss, if they work in the garden at least three times per week for 20 minutes or more each time. Another added benefit is it is enjoyable and will enhance confidence, plus you will have a terrific garden growing! While no special clothes are necessary for this workout, it is important to protect the hands and feet by wearing gardening gloves and comfortable shoes. It is also recommended to wear sunglasses, a hat and sunscreen when working outdoors. Vary the gardening chores each week to keep interest levels high and to work all the muscles.
