Cross training

In weather like this riding isn't really fun.To do something that was fun Jacob and myself hit up Hardwood Ski and Bike for some hickery.We loaded up the truck with our black coffee, work boots, chain saws and axes and headed to the forest.Chopping wood is a great cross training tool because it provides interval activity. As the motion of raising the splitting maul goes through its course, the triceps are extended, the abdominals are flexed, and the deltoids are recruited. Secondary stress is placed on the forearm flexors and the hip flexors during the course of one swing.Just a nice all around bod work out while heating your home and chillin with your man friends. Any ways its always nice to head out there and find a new way to work your body, go out and find your new way!! Cheers, Tristan
