Most of us will feel the pain of shoveling 1, 2 or 3- feet of heavy white stuff, mainly because we don’t use the proper technique.
Here is what you should know:
• Feet should be kept wide apart. Weight should be placed on the front foot close to the shovel. Use your leg to push the shovel straight ahead.
• Shift weight to your rear foot with the load of snow close to your body. Lift the load with the power of your legs and arms.
• Shift your body in the direction of the snow instead of twisting your waist.
