How About A Little Pre-Shovel Exercise Warm-Up For Muscles To Prevent Injury?

You may have heard of warming up your muscles before going for a run or swinging a golf club, but what about warming up before you shovel snow?

 

Shoveling snow is physical activity and it is recommended to warm-up before ANY type of physical activity so that your muscles are prepared to move the way you want them to move.

 

In a recent video that I created, I take you through a really cool warm-up that you can do before shoveling snow, going for a run, swinging a golf club, or shooting some hoops.

 

Why is it important to warm-up your muscles?

  • Prepares your muscles for more intense movement
  • Increases circulation
  • Increases heart rate
  • Improves range of motion
  • Improves dynamic flexibility
  • Improves mental clarity and focus when you visualize your upcoming workout as you warm-up
  • Reduces stiffness
  • Decreases soreness from previous workout
  • Reduces risk of injury

Next time you’re ready to shovel snow, clean your house, do some yard work, or exercise, keep this video in mind and warm-up your muscles - they will thank you for it!



To Your Best Health,

Dr. Jeanette
