Burning Calories through Household Chores

by BROOKE GOLD HASSON | Mar 03, 2014

Need some motivation to get started on that spring cleaning list? How about burning calories as you improve your home? Turns out a little bit of work can not only make your house and lawn look better but also help you keep up with that New Year’s resolution to stay fit!

Some of those household chores you’ve got on your list may just be a top-notch workout. Pushing your lawnmower across the yard can burn up to 400 calories each hour, while cleaning out those gutters can help you get rid of 272 calories each hour.

Need a fence? Building it yourself can burn 340 calories each hour and the follow-up cleaning and painting burn an additional 238 calories an hour.
