It’s nature's greatest workout -- shovelling snow!

Using a shovel requires the use of all the major muscles in your body, and generally speaking, if you are out there for an hour, the calorie burn could be around 400-600 calories.

However, because this action is so intense, it can cause muscle soreness and even potential injury.
