What if there is no snow or you hate the cold?

Cross Country Skiing
You see those straight ruts in the snow? Follow them, just sliding along as if you were on the cross country ski machine, poling with your opposite arm. Turn the skis sideways or make a v-shape to go uphill and snow plow downhill.
Every year hundreds of people around the world get a heart attack or injure their back or shoulders shovelling snow.
Don't go out into the cold, dehydrated, sleepy, stiff, and grumpy after a bad night's sleep. Warm up, stretch, drink fluids, and prepare the body for serious exercise.
Use the same technique you would doing any chores . Keep your spine lengthened, your knees over your toes, and work from your core muscles.
Work both sides of the back as you make a pattern and take frequent breaks.
If you feel chest pain while shoveling, stop, go inside and walk around. If it doesn’t go away, call your doctor immediately.
Performance: Warm-up before shoveling because it is a maximum effort performance.
Pounce then Purr: After digging into the snow with a pounce-like effort, purr by the fireside with some warm cider.
