Feel the burn with these five exercises that burn more calories than running:
You’ll burn a ton of calories with the short bursts of speed, balance, and coordination it takes to finish a full agility ladder circuit.
This exercise works the muscles around your glutes and quads and gets your heart pumping. In a study by the University of Wisconsin, participants burned 20.2 calories per minute.
For total body training, indoor rowing is a great option. You’ll utilize the muscles in your arms, legs and back, burning about 12.5 calories per minute.
Ten burpees every 60 seconds can help burn an average of 14.3 calories per minute.
Moderate-intensity rope jumping—about 100 to 120 skips per minute—burns about 13 calories a minute.
