Gardeners Are Athletes Too!

April 2, 2018

     Raking, hoeing, lifting, digging, kneeling, planting…almost enough physical activity to qualify for an international medal competition.  As with any athlete, you need to pre-train so that your muscles and joints are capable of the right form and technique to avoid injury.  
     Gardening requires good stability of your core muscles.  There are several simple exercises that done correctly will keep you injury free in your gardens.  Starting now will ensure that you are ready to go!
     Planks, squats or bridges, iron mans….these are all exercises that can be done at home once you are sure that you are doing them correctly. It takes several weeks to gear up muscles so start now!!!
