Rake to a rhythm

Say goodbye to dumbbells
When you move your pots around, either at night because you want to protect them from cold, or just if you want to display them. Just make sure you bend your knees not your waist, so you don’t hurt your back. Squat with your feet apart, grabbing the pot with both hands and keeping your back as straight as possible.
Using a hand mower and keeping the settings high, will help your burn calories. Of course the faster you do it, the more calories you will burn.
