Trying to stay healthy and manage your weight, but don’t have enough time between family, work and social obligations? The good news is you don’t have to spend hours at the gym – you just need to choose the right workout. Learn which is the best 30-minute calorie burner…
Calorie burn based on a 155-pound individual over a 30-minute interval.
10. Burpees – 298 calories
Break them up into intervals or add in jogging and jumping rope.
9. Cross-Country Skiing – 298 calories
Just as intense as running, but you recruit the use of your arms.
8. Rowing – 316 calories
Rowing inside, where conditions are controlled, may be less challenging than rowing across a lake against the wind.
7. Jumping Rope – 372 calories
It may seem effortless, but jumping rope is highly taxing that many people won’t be able to sustain.
6. Jogging – 372 calories
The faster you run, the more calories you’ll burn.
5. Hill Workouts – 373 calories
Whether you’re running or biking, throw some resistance in the mix by hitting a hill (or incline on a treadmill).
4. Swimming (Butterfly) – 409 calories
Again, swimming in a controlled environment will be less demanding than swimming against the current in a body of water.
3. Rock Climbing – 409 calories
Climbing at a faster pace or choosing a challenging route can increase the total calorie burn.
2. Tabata Training – 450 calories
A study conducted by the American Council on Exercise determined that a typical Tabata workout can burn an average of 15 calories per minute.
1. Sprint Intervals – 465 calories
Try altering between two minutes at an all-out pace, and then recover with one minute of jogging.
