Legends of the FALL: Rake it Girl

Did you know that raking leaves for 30 minutes burns about 150 calories, depending on your weight and how vigorously you rake? If you hate raking leaves, just remember you're also burning calories - so why not make the most of it?

Be sure to take care of your back while you bag all those leaves. Don't round your lower back as you move your piles into bags. Bend from your hips and stick your booty out. This will not only work your glutes (like a squat), but it will also protect your lower spine. And while you're at it, why not use your deep abs too?
