This time of year, is the best time to rake the falling leaves that have found their way onto your lawn. Raking will work your entire upper body including your shoulders, back and pectoral muscles in your chest.
Your legs will benefit too when you are picking up the debris and putting it into bags. Then use this to make leaf mulch which will help your garden further.
This exercise gets the parts of your body to work similar to those worked by a rowing machine.
Not only will you be helping your body but you’ll be helping your lawn. This is because leaving the autumn leaves to sit on the grass will damage the grass and even kill it as light cannot get to it.
