Ben,

Man, I wish I had your common sense when I was your age! I've only been shoveling for a week and I can see the difference. I can only imagine how buff you're going to get with at least a dozen year head start on some of us! Keep it up!

Ok, back to shoveling...

Dropped down to an 8 pounder, and went through 14 minutes of exercise. It's good solid resistance. I imagine in a few months I'll go back to the 10 pounder. No rush as long as I feel good resistance and some progress!

Reinhard

Reinhard, there is no question in my mind that I can get strong from doing this. Even with my overdoing it the first couple times I can feel a positive difference.

Thanks everyone for your support.

:D

Kevin

If I was any more "successful" I'd be addicted to painkillers and muscle relaxants by now! LOL. Seriously though, it was a success. After just two workouts I can feel the difference, even if I can't actually see the difference. Man, I can't even imagine the strength of those guys (and gals) working ...

Sledge-O-Matic!: A Cautionary Tale...

So, I went after it too hard with too much that first go round with the shovelglove. Yes, I read all the red printed precautions, and yes I ignored them, and yes, oh most certainly YES, I suffered dearly for ignoring them! I took my cue from Reinhard's quicktime videos. In the videos Reinhard is sho...

Thanks for all of the replies...

I weenied out and am starting out with an 8 pounder. The back thing is a concern. I haven't given my back a workout like this one in a long time. I'll consider this sledge my "training wheels" to get the movements and routine down for a month or two, and if I have to shell out another 20 bucks later...

Shovelglove Newbie

After three years of sedentary living and multiple failures at the gym, I found this website through an obscure blog. The whole exercise, at first glance seemed kind of "unconventional." But I figured I was tired of giving the gym my money, so I canceled my membership and went to my local independen...
