    Gardening Can Be Excellent Exercise

    The sun is shining longer and the trees are starting to bud. As the birds begin to chirp out the first signs of spring, many of us find ourselves heading out to our flower and vegetable gardens.

    Most people don't think of gardening as exercise, but believe it or not, gardening provides an excellent opportunity for strength and cardio training.

    Before you grab your garden hoe, it is important to remember to stretch first.

    Yes, I said stretch before you garden. Stretching is our first line of defense against muscle and joint injuries.
