Health and fitness: Seasonal training is good for gardeners

-A A +A
By Kent Pegg

This is the time of year when many of you are venturing out of the house and into your yards and gardens.

While gardening can be a fun and effective way to get some exercise, a little work in the gym will allow you to get even more out of the experience and ensure that you stay injury free all summer long.

One of the great things I hear is how people’s workouts are positively affecting their lives. And one of the most common statements this time of year is how much more yard and garden work people are able to do if they’ve been exercising.

Of course, to get the most out of this summer’s growing season it would be best if you’ve been working out all winter long. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late. Focus on strengthening exercises for the legs, back and shoulders to get ready for the summer gardening.

As always, if you’re not sure how to perform any of the exercises or have any health or physical challenges, check with a health or fitness professional to make sure you get the most out of your workout sessions and eliminate the potential for injuries.
