MovNat on ice: Winter natural movement ideas?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 24, 2013 at 1:20 AM

I'm out on snowshoes these days on the same trails where, in the other 9 months of the year, I run and throw rocks, carry logs, climb trees, leap ditches etc. What could I do on snowshoes to incorporate natural movement principles? Only thing I thought of so far is pulling weight either on a sled or just dragging something heavy behind me. Any of my fellow Northerners have any other ideas? (Hard to climb in snowshoes, can't get at logs and rocks which are buried in snow)

dry crust? build an igloo? probably hard work cutting out chunks and hauling them around, though i'd imagine you need pretty deep snow for that...

I like this! It's true that some of the winter games I do with my kids are great exercise like pulling them on their sled and rolling big snowballs for snowmen. Unfortunately the snow is only warm enough to stick in December and March, right now it's just a dry crust :(

I lived in North Dakota for a while and I understand the challenge of exercising in a frozen tundra wonderland. Snow shoes themselves are a work out. So are cross country skies. Maybe do arm exercises inside? Life a few lbs? I am sure your legs and core are getting a great work out against the snow. Let us all know if you come up with other interesting ideas.

Roll big snowballs up a hill?
