Prepare. Athletico suggests stretching your muscles before gardening. The constant bending and tedious hand work can leave you with a sore body and strained muscles. They also suggest to start with a smaller amount of time spent in the garden and then to gradually add more time. On another note, make sure you also ensure you’ve got the right kit for the job.
