Which activities help in burn out the more calories?
“Try to follow your workout routine with dedication and burn about 1,000 to 1100 calories within one hour!” That’s a claim which you can also see in advertisements everywhere for stair-climbers, treadmills, and other cardio machines. And it’s true. You can burn about 1,000 to1100 calories/hour by doing these types of activities — if you crank up machine to the higher level.
If you are a beginner, you’ll last about 30 to 35 seconds with pace, at that point you will have burned 8.3 calories approximately.
There’s a better approach to calorie burning: Try an activity which you can sustain for a good while — say, at least 10 to 15 minutes. Sure, running burns effective calories as comparing to walking, but if running wipes you out after approximately 1/2 mile or bothers your knee, you’re better off walking rather than running.
The following table will help you in calorie estimates for various types of popular aerobic activities. How much of calories you actually burn is all depends on the intensity of your workout, your muscle mass, your weight, and your metabolism.
