Today is National Gardening Exercise Day!

This holiday encourages you to get outside. Working in the garden can be pretty vigorous exercise leading to some fantastic health benefits (in addition to the vegetables you're growing!)

Experts say the various activities and tasks of gardening ultimately use all of the major muscle groups. In addition, strenuous gardening activities such as raking, hoeing, and digging are both aerobic and muscle strengthening.

Everyday gardening can burn 300 calories per hour, the same as walking, golfing, or other low-impact exercises. If you get into heavy yard work, you can double the calorie burn, which is as good as running, cycling, or interval training.

Read more about this day here, then head outside to get your garden exercise in!

*NOTE: This is in no way an endorsement of any candidate. The Grange is firmly non-partisan and will never endorse a candidate or party.
