Rise and Shovel! Your body will thank you.

Those of you who know me well realize that I aim to workout, in some way or another, every single hour of the day. I skip a step every time I am climbing the stairs and my bottom has not touched a toilet seat, including those in my home, since 2010…instant squat and hold! With that being said, I am suiting up for a pre-training workout at my house this morning that is guaranteed to torch calories and strengthen my cardiovascular system. The leisurely days of snow angels and sleigh riding are over. Time to own it at everything you do. Don’t let the blizzard get you down. Bundle up, grab a shovel and you can burn 400 calories in one hour! Of course the amount of calories you burn can vary depending on your weight, how quickly you shovel, the weight of the snow and how long you rest between “sets.” Just remember to bend your knees and keep good form as you would while exercising in the gym. Shoveling is truly a great full body workout that helps you blast fat and strengthen muscles without really thinking about it. Ok, you are definitely thinking about it, so pop that iPod in your pocket and get moving to your favorites jams. Here is my shoveling playlist:

Right Now – Rihanna ft. David Guetta
Suit & Tie – Justin Timberlake ft. Jay Z
Beautiful You Are Remix – Deborah Cox
Lost – Frank Ocean
Stellar Club Mix – Daddy’s Groove
Work – Kelly Rowland
Nobody’s Business – Rihanna ft. Chris Brown
Hot Tottie – Usher ft. Jay Z
The Storm – Tiesto
Fire Burning – Sean Kingston
Cashin Out – Cash Out
Poetic Justice – Kendrick Lamar ft. Drake (great cool down song)

While you’re at it, shovel for your elderly neighbor down the block. Fit life + charity makes the world go ’round.

*Happy Shoveling to all My Fit Friends*
