Hello everyone, I found the shovelglove website last night while researching different types of workout which I could do at home. This morning I dug out the 3 kg splitting maul from the garage and had a go. I did 14 minutes and it was really good fun. I'm going to try and get to a hardware shop this afternoon and get a 5 kg sledge as the maul is a bit light and dangerous with the sharp edge. This really seems to be a well thought out and simple system to achieve and maintain strength and fitness. I can't wait for tomorrow morning to do some more shovelling.

I managed to get my 5 kg sledge yesterday and clothed it in an old green sweater. I used it this morning and was surprised at how much difference the two kg made. Broke a sweat and actually looked like I had done some exercise after. I will post in the routine subforum once I've settled with a routine that I like.

Welcome! Glad to hear you're off to a good start.

I've been shovelgloving ~12 years now so it's definitely maintainable.

The trick is to ease in, throttle your enthusiasm, and focus on that sustainable minimum of compliance rather than heroic one-time efforts.

Reinhard
