Mowing the lawn

Postby holly80 » Mon Mar 10, 2008 11:42 am

I was just wondering if mowing the yard is counted as excerise. I have never done it before, and just had a go then.

I didnt time it but I say it was between 20-30 min. Although cant be positive. Silly me for not timing it :twisted:

I should also add our mower isnt motorised, we have a push mower...

My arms and neck are killing me now lol plus I have not sweated like that in a long time, We have the usual size town house back yard.

Yes mowing is counted as exercise. You should have a look at http://www.calorieking.com.au this will help you count calories & also shows you how many calories you burn for exercise. Mowing is listed (I know this as I mowed our lawn for an hour yesterday - big yard!!!). :D
