I planted my garden over the weekend. I remember a few years ago it was getting so difficult for me to do it. I would be in pain shortly into the day. I would have to sit to dig...and even STOP early for the day. For the last few years, though, I've had a much easier time and can spend a day gardening with only a few short breaks. I don't have to sit DURING gardening and didn't feel stiff the next day at all! In fact I felt refreshed. It's such great exercise. Here is what I think I did while gardening...
Twists (when I use the hoe, it's kind of a twisty motion)
Pile driver (hammering in the tomato stakes and sometimes stirring the compost pile)
Lift weights (lifting bags of dirt, manure, etc).
Walking (around the garden)
It's a great workout!
