    4 Exercises That Burn More Calories Than Running


    Running is one of the sport that has been in existence for years and it is still the sport that is commonly performed. It is effective to get the body warmed up and to burn a lot of calories. Based on how fast you run, you can burn that amount of calories. You don’t need much to start running anyway. A pair of running shoes and a road is all it takes to start sweating out. However, a lot of people don’t like running. Some consider it as tedious, monotonous and sometimes downright boring. The good news is that there are other exercises which can replace running. Here are four types of exercises which can burn more calories than running

    4. Kettlebell Swing

    Arguably one of the most explosive exercises you can come across, the kettlebell swing will really make you work hard. It engages all the big and powerful muscles in your body such as the glutes and quads. Your heart will surely end up pumping faster than it ever did. If done correctly, you can burn 20.2 calories per minute. The idea of the kettlebell swing is that you are performing a movement that your body is not used to. Therefore, you end up working twice as hard to pull it off and burn more calories.

    3, Jumping Rope

    If you want a very high-intensity exercise as an alternate to running then jumping rope is the right choice for you. If you can pull of around 100 to 120 skips per minute then you will be burning 13 calories in that one minute. It is very effective if you want to lose the weight and is quite useful for improving a person’s balance. There is a great deal of hand and foot coordination that you need to maintain in order to skip in a smooth, uninterrupted flow.

    2.  Battling ropes

    Feeling in the mood to really push your body to the limits? Then try out the battling ropes. Based on a couple of studies done at the College of New Jersey, battling ropes has proved to be the number one exercise that consumes the highest amount of oxygen. And as we all know, the more oxygen your body needs, the more calories you can burn. On average, you will be burning around 10.3 calories in a minute while doing battling ropes. This is arguably the easiest and most effective way to lose quite a lot of weight and flatten that belly of yours!

    1. Fat Tire Biking

    This is one of the fastest rising sports in the world right now. Fat tire biking is your average bicycling except the bikes are huge and monstrous. They are hard to turn and requires a great deal of effort to pedal. The good side is that you can burn up to 1500 calories in an hour by riding this bike. So imagine if you make it a habit of riding the fat tire bike every day, and burn at least 1500 calories each day. You will have that stomach toned down and will have greatly improved endurance levels.
