Let’s talk about summer outdoor activities that help burn calories

Maybe but maybe it can get someone started on the weight loss journey they want to do for the summer. So let’s talk.

  1. Yard work can help you get out in the backyard and clean up a bit. It also might be a little therapy for you to hear the birds chirp and other sounds or smells of summer. Like the smell of fresh-cut grass that doesn’t like that if your allergies don’t mind. Shoveling snow, raking leaves, and mowing your lawn is a great ways to burn some calories. You can burn about 400-600 calories an hour doing heavy yard work. So you don’t have to have a yard cleaning service in Oakland County or Macomb County come out you can do it all yourself. If you have pets you can even clean up the dog poop. But if your stomach can’t handle it as many can’t you can get a dog poop pick-up service in Clarkston, Lake Orion, and Macomb Michigan to help with that. Now on to raking leaves you can burn about 350 calories an hour and with mowing your grass in Michigan you can burn about 250 calories an hour.
  1. Walking the dog or walking with your kids even getting groceries can help you burn calories. The average person can burn 165 calories an hour shopping. Walking down the isles burns enough calories to need a snack right after you shop.  Walking your dog is one of the best outdoor activities you can do for strong muscles and bones but not just that you can lower your blood pressure and improve your cardiovascular fitness with a low impact exercise. Even walking your kids to and from school can help them and you stay fit.
  1. Splitting wood and I mean firewood might be one of the most masculine outdoor activities ever. Splitting work is a strong cardio and full-body workout. If the workout is done correctly you can burn about 400 calories an hour. This outdoor activity uses the same muscles as doing a crunch would use. The motions used in this activity will tone you up and help you lose weight. So if you know anyone that needs help with firewood lend a hand?
