I'm not very strong (at the moment) as a 60yr old woman who's never been into strength-training - but I came up with the idea of trying to use my dumbells as a sort of shovelglove thing. It's working well for me because (a) I can adjust the weight and (b) the shorter handle makes it easier for me

You never know, I may progress to a proper shovelglove in time!

Hi, Gill! I just use regular weights and swing them around, along with other moves. That looks nifty. Are you still at it?

New to No S so have a lot to learn. Will also be starting out using the dumbbells, seeing as I already have them, and biking rather than walking d/t painfully ruined feet (bike has been tuned up and is ready to go; will be using indoor pedaled until weather warms up). Feeling VERY optimistic.

Those are worthy movement replacements, SF. Very much in keeping with using what's at hand.

Exercise does more for longevity than just about anything! And it's about 20% influential in weight loss. It plus No S, I believe, will solve 80% of the degenerative disease problems.

This I write will plunked down surfing the net...

About a year ago - I had the opportunity to use an actual sledgehammer (a BIG one) on a huge truck tire. WOWO, was I sore. AND for whatever reason, supremely peaceful.

I've never heard of this exercise - but it sounds like fun.

SO - I think it's going to be awesome as a 63yr old to walk into Lowes or Home Depot - and buy the biggest one they have.

RED, I don't think even Reinhard uses the biggest one they have.

I hardly ever even get to my 15-lb. weights and I have two 20's out on the deck. Thankfully bought at yard sales at a fraction of the new price. I'll probably never get a real sledge hammer. Won't stop me from using what I have doing analogous moves.

LMAO - Well, I broached the topic with my left-brained spouse. He was adamant that we don't have the room, with hints at unintentional demolition due to my innate klutziness. Very Happy

In other words, no matter what size I picked, he wanted me 15 or 20 feet away from the house. HA.

But I'm like the others here, I'm starting with something lighter - like a shovel or broom.

Smile

This past week though - I spent a lot of time raking up moss from my yard, harder than it looks, and my muscles are telling me off. It felt good to get that done!

Nothing like functional movement as a benchmark and medium.

That's awesome! I'm looking at configuring my own to start as well. The video looks so doable, but also a good workout.
