  • Perfect timing! The sun is out, our last frost date is almost here, & I'm getting the gardening bug again. - 4/18/2015 2:36:22 PM
  • Nice piece of information, now if it only could get me to like garden. I put ground clear on most of my yard because I dislike yard work that much. - 4/14/2015 9:58:02 AM
  • I really like these workouts. Very helpful but how do you bookmark the seated workouts? I don't want to have to go to pinterest? - 4/8/2015 1:03:43 PM
  • No matter how much I exercise previously, when gardening begins, I always have a few sore muscles. - 4/18/2014 5:59:11 AM
  • Good information. I usually ready myself by cleaning my stairs. I kneel on my stairs and reach forward to the steps ahead of me as far as I comfortably can moving up and down the stairs on my hands and knees wiping as I go. I have nice clean stairs all early spring, lol. - 4/6/2014 3:56:56 PM

    I like the concept but I'd have to go to the gym to do the exercises. I don't have all this equipment at home. Wish they had picked exercises you could do with no equipment or one piece of equipment. - 12/31/2013 2:36:48 PM
  • Have to remember to give these a try. But I have to really focus on them because I am so use to doing it my way. - 9/25/2013 4:10:12 PM

    Coach Joe - A couple of the exercises listed have different names from those in the actual fitness resource center. . . are they the right exercises but just have multiple names? Thanks! - 3/15/2013 2:04:35 PM
  • Nice article. notice my snowdrops are in full bloom. Now, another storm coming my way. - 3/15/2013 12:16:10 PM
  • I like functional workouts like this one. It helps me to have an activity in mind so I have something to work toward. Great article. Tnanks. - 3/15/2013 11:46:30 AM
  • Yesterday, was the beginning of gardening season for me. I was out and about in my yard. Had to start early with pruning. Two major snowstorms caused some damage to a couple of bushes. With some TLC I am confident they will recover. By exercising over the past weeks ... I am mostly pain free this morning. A little stiff, but nothing too major. Love this article. Will incorporate it into my exercise routine. - 3/15/2013 7:36:04 AM

  • The garden is a good place for me to be. - 4/13/2012 2:25:25 PM
  • I definitely burn lots of calories when I work on the property. Last weekend we cleared trees from a forested area that was too full of seedlings, I used the handsaw to cut instead of the chain saw. I really used all muscle groups that day, and wasn't very sore next day due to good core exercises! - 6/25/2011 5:27:17 AM
  • I dropped about fifteen pounds of "baby weight" on my own through walking, swimming and yard work. I attribute most of it to using an old-fashioned reel (not REAL) mower a couple times a week. No noise and no noxious fumes, either. - 2/19/2011 8:22:59 AM
