Crazy how some childhood activities can still be as useful as it was for us back then. Cycling engages one of the largest muscles of the gluteus maximus and hamstrings. These are the zones of your thigh area that with regular engagement gets toned. But moreover, cycling has a holistic effect on your body. It increases your stamina, and strength and also benefits aerobic fitness. If you cycle for even 30 minutes, you are successfully going to burn 500 calories. Cycling is the best cardio to opt for when you tend to save some time in hand. For instance, switch to cycling rather than other gas-emission vehicles on your way to the office/college. It’s environmentally friendly and yet benefits our health personally. 30 minutes of cycling shall reduce stress and improve your cardiovascular stamina.
HIIT workout is the best exercise to burn calories in a short amount of time. HIIT requires complete focus, you cannot just continue performing this workout while sitting or getting distracted. Your whole body, even your mind is engaged in the exercise where you get very little time to rest. The body is indulged in the anaerobic movement throughout, the workouts require your muscles to burn glucose anaerobically as the body’s main energy source which is produced by oxygen i.e. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is restricted. Also, while performing HIIT you don’t require any equipment. Your body remains the main equipment here. High knees, fast feet, jump lunges, and squat jumps can be included in the workout. 12 reps of each with 2 sets are enough to perform if you want to enter into a fat-burning zone.
A workout that can be officially labeled as ‘fun’, performing Zumba each day with your other workouts can lead you to a beneficial ride to lose weight. Zumba can be the best way to cut calories. It improves bodily coordination, tones your body, boosts your heart health, and allows you to de-stress and be happy. Even a 10-minute Zumba session included in your 30-minute calorie-burn workout can help you detox completely. Zumba is fun as they are not constrained to any particular form, but rather the movement of the body that takes you inside the fat-burning zone.
Running can release 500 calories from your body. Running need not necessarily have to be brisk but even low-impact running can impact gracefully to your body. Unlike cycling, running includes all the muscles of the body including the arms and biceps as well. If you plan to include running in your regime, start with a simple walk. Don’t forget to engage your core and arm muscles as their movement is equally important just like your legs. Running for 30-minutes or running along with other calorie burners can help in weight loss, toning, and improved cardiovascular health.
You know only 20 minutes of rope jumping can help you burn up to 241 calories. A deal to dwell into, isn’t it? But of course, rope jumping is indeed a high-intensity workout with great results. It boosts your heart health, maintains bone density, and also increases speed. Choose the right length of the rope that fits your height. Stay on the balls of your feet and jump only a bit higher than the floor. It elevates your heart rate and works on the muscles in the arms and legs while burning calories within.
