Snow Day Workouts
December 27, 2010
It’s a snow day in New York City! (For many of us at least.) Take advantage of the day off and the snow to burn some calories without going to the gym. Here are some snow-related activities and the calories per hour you’ll burn doing them*:
|Shoveling Snow||408 calories|
|Snow Shoeing||544 calories|
|Ice Skating||150 calories|
|Cross-Country Skiing (moderate effort)||544 calories|
|Downhill Skiing (moderate effort)||408 calories|
|Building a Snowman||285 calories|
|Having a Snowball Fight||319 calories|
|Making Snow Angels||214 calories|
*Calories burned are based on a 150-pound person
What are you doing on this snow day?!
I always thought building a snowman was HARD! The body and the head are heavy.
No snow for me today, but I do my indoor workouts with exercise videos when it is cold and/or wet outside.
Shelley, that’s a good point!
Exercise videos are a great option for days you can’t get outside!
