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)

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.
