Back seats folded down - a small one might fit...

Frankly, I'm sure his chances of avoiding certain injuries while doing it the old fashioned way greatly decreases. Good for him to be honest. I highly doubt he bought that snowblower because its another way to avoid physical activity. That dude lives and breathes fitness.

Hell for me, I'd rather spar a few rounds in the ring than get my exercise shovelling snow. But hey to each their own. With crazy snowfalls such as the one Wednesday, I'll gladly use a snowblower on that 10/10 times and I'm not a lazy individual by any means. In fact, I used my shovelling experience on weds as my workout for the day as I was scheduled to have a training session that day anyways. Haven't had this kind of back soreness, post workout aches, in months. But like I said, I'd rather do deadlifts than shovel snow every single time.
Seriously snow shovelling does none of that for me. Probably because I'm used to doing my walks/driveway and the neighbors everytime it snows. Its like any workout, if you're relatively not used to it, its going to hit you harder. That happens a bit to me everytime the gym gets new equipment. Everything exercizes muscles differently and its nothing but beneficial to get exercise in as many forms as possible.

If you have back soreness from shovelling a little snow frankly you don't shovel snow right or your core ab and back strength is the ***** With a proper shovel and form you're hardly even using back.

Maybe they should have shovelling classes at the gym for proper form.

Now if you're talking something like roofing man that **** gets old. Mind you I did my garage and house roof myself with a hammer, not even a nail gun. But I did get tired and my back hurt. But thats doing it over 12hrs/day.

ftr I've been training for 30yrs.

Anyway peace out, I'm just having some fun here. Don't take it the wrong way.

ps had to get this in. How could any hockey fan NOT like shoveling snow. BAck in the old school day Shoveling a rink or local pond out by yourselves was how you got to play a good game of hockey.

Shoveling, clear ice, = hockey. Nothing more canadian.

Was at Sears a couple days ago, and went to the hardware section to pick up a new tool. There were 4 people standing in line, in front of me. Every one of them was purchasing a massive new snowblower. Someone is going to make a killing this year. Including the local ski hills. I believe Snow Valley said this is their earliest opening time ever.


P.S. Siince we're on an internet chat site, I can tell all of you that I train religiously for 6 hours a day, am 6'4". 215 lbs of solid muscle and have been doing this for 31 years. Plus I am incredibly good looking.

Thankyou.

Yeah but I like the soreness after workouts, you kind of took that quote the wrong way. I like feeling sore after workouts. Im one of those rare people who like leg days. I'm not doing anything wrong out there. Like I said I'll do 100 deadlifts than shovel snow outside. for me, i think having a normal workout in a gym seems much better than snow removal. really is no hassle for me to walk down to my basement and hit the weights. Lol.

My core and back is fine. I'm a boxer, core is everything to me. People will naturally feel sore after doing something their body isn't used to. And I don't know about you, but I haven't shovelled snow since march. I surely didnt shovel snow in June. I was cutting grass. Lol. Not the same thing. Guess we are going have to agree to disagree. You like snow removal, I like weights.

So it's the 3rd successive day I had to take HWY 44, it's brutal, as are the rest of the roads I was on, Horrendous driving conditions, it's sort hard to believe. I hope someone finally gets on that.

burning gas and making a racket is almost always fun!!

That said i actually kind of enjoy shoveling snow. I manually shovel my walk but it is FUN to use a snowblower too.

a quad with a blade is even more fun than a snowblower. Just dont let bylaw officers catch you plowing your 80 year old neighbors sidewalk.

That's our great weather people. It's like some have newer technology than others.

Some are actual meterologists and some are TV personalities

My thumbs go up to the personalities, because they are about as accurate as the meterologists and didn't wast their time studying something that people can judge by looking out their window.

The major snowfall warning didn't come from them, it came from environment canada.
