Shoveling snow is not only tedious, but it truly strains your back. We previously mentioned on our site the snow-rolling technique. You can watch a video demonstration by clicking here. What you have to do is make a small snowball and roll the snow around it like a long carpet! Sounds absolutely bonkers, but it works.

If you've tried the rolling method before, you know its success greatly depends on the texture of the snow and its depth. Having to resort back to the shovel sounds dreadful, but there is one more trick up our sleeve to help it glide away from your shovel instead of sticking to it: lubricate it all around with cooking oil spray. You can also use petrolatum jelly (Vaseline and the likes of it) or the trusty WD-40. Even car wax would work!
Attaching a handle or a string to your shovel will also alleviate or even prevent back strain while shoveling. Click here to see how.
