Shovelcise: the daily workout that inevitably follows heavy snowfalls. 

Example: Chelsea’s new workout routine included an hour and a half of shovelcise.

This afternoon was spent moving piles of solid water from one part of the property (driveway) to another (berms beside driveway).  I had several inches of thick, wet snow – getting ever thicker and wetter since it was 36 degrees – to deal with.  Let’s just say it was the best workout I’ve gotten in a while.
