Welcome to Readers’ Workouts, the weekly event where book lovers share workout stories, goals, successes, and challenges.
We’ve had some relatively cool days for August in Missouri, so I’ve been getting some yard work done. I get injured every time I do things by bending over, so I’ve had to get strong enough to do yard work by squatting and lunging. That does two things for me:
- In the summer, I can count yard work as strength-training
- In the winter, I’m motivated to do strength-training so that I can do yard work without injury
How is your exercise going? Does yard work count in your regime?
