    What type of effect does Pushing Carts have on your body muscle wise?

    I push carts at Wal-Mart for 33 hours per week on average.

    I wanted to know what type of effect it has on your body muscle wise.

    As far as cardio wise, I already know, since I lost allot of weight, but muscle wise, I'm not sure.

    The carts are heavy, they are made of metal, and I push allot of them. With the amount of carts I bring in, it feels similar to the worn out feeling you get from lifting weights.

    Also, the parking lot is uphill, so it feels like pushing carts up to a mountain top.

    Whenever I bring in carts, I feel pressure on my legs, and my shoulders. My shoulders seem to have gotten bigger too.

    Im guessing pushing carts would have more of an aerobic/cardio effect on your body as well as strengthening your core

    It's similar to pushing a light prowler or sled, something like that. You get some pressing work, some core work, some added leg work. Not sure how much though, depends on how much you're doing.

    I'm not really familiar with working out, so what do those mean?

    I worked at Walmart pushing carts for like 1-1/2 years in college during which I was probably most interested in bodybuilding. I did the usual 3-5 day split routine with plenty of calories and protein shakes thrown in. I would say the biggest effect pushing carts had was helping to keep me leaner. I seemed to be 1-2% lower in body fat while I worked there. Probably just the effect of increased work and burning more calories, etc. It is basically lots of walking, and walking is in general a good exercise. You are basically walking non-stop and on your feet for a whole shift. Calves and arms may get a slight workout but nothing serious. You probably won't be building or strengthening any muscles unless you were super weak to begin with. You will probably be in better shape overall. Just consume calories during all your breaks. I frequently drank half a gallon of milk while at work along with other food.

    Doesn't your Wal-Mart provide the little cart pusher?
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.
