Wellness Tuesday: Climbing Hills Strengthens Legs

Climbing Hills helps with strength training

We have a lot of hills around the house.

The other day I was putting lotion on my legs and felt how muscular my calves and thighs felt.

I realized that this was due to walking the hills so much.

Walking the hills are not always fun, especially the really steep hills.  However, Mama taught me that if I walk across the hill cattycorner, it is much easier to climb than just going straight up.  I’ve discovered this to be true.  Some hills are so steep or large, that I have to cut across three or four times.

However, by doing this I’m building muscle in my legs and strengthening them.

This is a great way to begin strength training.
