Exercises That Burn The MOST Calories

So here’s the deal. To burn off 1 pound per week you need to burn approximately 3,500 extra calories than you take in. Sounds like a lot? Well, not really. Through a strict diet and some of the exercises below it’s very achievable. I have listed some of the best and most effective ways to burn calories in the shortest amount of time possible.

The following numbers are based on a 130lb woman. The heavier you are, the more calories you will burn.

  1. Swimming laps (medium pace) - 600 calories/hour
  2. Running up the stairs -900 calories/hour
  3. Rowing (fast pace) - 525 calories/hour
  4. Stair climber - 490 calories/hour
  5. Kickboxing - 615 calories/hour
  6. Step aerobics - 630 calories/hour
  7. Elliptical Trainer - 560 calories/hour
  8. Weight lifting (minimal rest) - 488 calories/hour
  9. Jump rope - 780 calories/hour
  10. Running @ 5mph - 700 calories/hour

A mixture of the above exercises and reduction in calories on a daily basis will result in weight loss. I recommend you mix things up to keep your exercising interesting and fun. If you know someone else who wants to lose weight, get them to join you - it can be a great motivator!
