Are you finding ways to burn calories without running? Usually there are many effective ways of reducing calories despite of running. Try the below mentioned alternative methods to cut down your calories.
Indoor rowing: it is a total body trainer and by doing this exercise you need to utilize the muscles in your arms, legs and back for efficient strokes. An 83 kg guy can burn 377 calories during 30 minutes of vigorous rowing as per the reports of Harvard University study.
Burpees: An 82 kg guy can burn about 1.43 calories per burpee. So the number of calories burn depends on doubling the number of burpees. According to a study presented at the American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting it was stated that performing just 10 reps at a fast pace can reverse your metabolism as much as 30-sec, all out bike sprint.
Jumping rope: This exercise uses more muscle groups than jogging and challenges your balance and coordination. Although this is quite difficult task, it will burn 13 calories a minute for 100 to 120 skips per minute.
Battling ropes: In a recent College of New Jersey study comparing various workout styles, battling-rope exercises came in first in terms of total oxygen consumption and an average calorie burn of 10.3 calories per minute.
Tabata Jump Squats: This four-minute miracle drill burns major calories both during a workout and after. In an Auburn University at Montgomery study, participants who did eight rounds of all-out jump squats have reduced 13.4 calories per minute and doubled their post-exercise metabolic rate for at least 30 minutes.
Although running is the best way to burn 10 calories a minute, you can choose above mentioned alternative methods if you don’t like running.
