shoveling snow

Anyone else agree with me that shoveling snow, after it has been rained on, is a good workout?

I live near Boston, you must be on the east coast cause we got some serious sleet/snow mix
its a good workout, but you gotta switch sides

I guess if you have snow to shovel you might as well make a workout out of it. Obviously anything that requires you to work hard physically can be turned into some type of workout if only to make it more interesting. Me? I’d buy a snow blower.

Wet snow, I never have that problem but shoveling wet sand is one tough workout and I would imagine it might be similar.
