Why it works: Mulching’s a seasonal task that’s underrated as a full-body workout. It hits the same muscles as raking—only you’re heaving some serious weight. Decline the help loading the bags into your car to start the workout early. Distribute the bags around your yard, then get to work spreading the mulch with your hands and a rake.
Keys to success: Use proper squatting technique to move the bags and rake from both arms so you work both sides equally.
