5 Workout To Burn More Calories


Find Out This Few Tips From Local Trainers And Health Athletes they’d recommend to burn those calories.

We asked local trainers and athletes what exercise they’d recommend to burn those calories. While there were various answers, running was the most popular. Try combining some exercises from this list to ensure a calorie-busting workout. And honestly, who wants to do one exercise for an entire workout, anyway?


1. Kettlebell Swings

“Kettlebell swings work the entire body. It’s an aerobic activity that engages all of the large muscle groups, which means you are not only burning calories during the workout, but there is a considerable exercise after-burn, as well. That means your body will continue to burn calories post-workout. While burning calories and eating less is the obvious key to weight loss, any exercise that burns calories and builds muscle simultaneously will help the body burn more at rest, too.”
—Heather Cohen, Vida Fitness

2. Walking Stairs

“Taking duration and intensity into account, I think it is safe to say that walking as quickly up stairs, for as long as possible, is the most calorie-burning exercise out there. It is something everyone can do, for a fairly long time, and something that raises heart rate and blood pressure, as well as recruiting large muscle groups in the body.”
—Monica Pampell, The Sports Club/LA


3. Boxing

“There is a reason you don’t see a lot of boxers with bad physiques. This combination of anaerobic and aerobic cardio, muscular endurance, and power plus speed and agility through the use of the entire muscular system can’t be beat.”
—Lance Breger, Mint DC

4. Dancing

“Go dancing. I’m not talking about the slow, shy kind. I’m talking about the ‘getting your whole body into it’ kind of dancing. The kind that you would dance if nobody was watching. When I see people in my YALA dance fusion class move, I know they are burning huge amounts of calories, but they are also having fun. And I’m positive (although I haven’t done any scientific experiments) that when you are enjoying, something, you tend to push yourself just a little bit more making you burn more calories than an exercise you would do just to do it.”
—Laurent Amzallag, YALA Fitness


5. Running

“Running is the most efficient workout. For 40 to 60 minutes of activity, I think it burns about the most calories of any exercise and it is very convenient and has a minimal barrier to entry (now, not even shoes are needed) that some of the other really high-calorie-burning activities like cross country skiing or rowing do.”
—Michael Wardian, professional marathon runner
