5 Healthy Ways To Burn 500 Calories Whether you overdid it this weekend, feel off your fitness routine for a few days, or you just have an itch for a calorie-killing workout, we have got you covered. We created a list of 5 of our favorite challenging, body-sculpting ways to burn 500 calories or more. You can use this list to create a well-rounded workout routine by rotating between the workouts all week long. Read on for some boredom-free, fat-blasting workout routines. 1. Dance it off: One hour of Zumba. Dance, hop, and shake your way to 500 calories before you even realize you’re working out! Zumba is great cardio exercise and it seriously tones your midsection. The upbeat playlist and enthusiasm make it impossible not to enjoy yourself! 2. Body weight boot camp: 45 minutes of body weight exercises with minimal rest in between can burn mega calories . Think burpees, squats, push-ups, lunges, dips, and bicycle crunches. Do 10-15 of each of these exercises, rest for 45 seconds, and repeat. Set yourself a timer and don’t stop ‘til the clock does! The best part is, you can do a body weight workout just about anywhere without any equipment, making it perfect for the living room or a hotel room. 3. Game on: Playing a sport that involves interval cardio like basketball, soccer, volleyball, or tennis can burn major calories in about 50 minutes. Challenge a friend to play and wager a prize for the winner! Many cities have leagues that you can sign up for with coworkers or friends for regular, weekly, calorie-burning fun. 4. Do your chores: Some days it can be hard to find time for your to-do list and a workout. The good news is that many chores can double as exercise . Cleaning the house for two hours, shoveling snow for 50 minutes, or mowing for an hour and a half will get you to your calorie-burning goal. You can cross a chore and a workout off of your to-do list! 5. Move outside: Whether you are enjoying biking or running , you can burn off 1/7 of a pound outside. Biking for an hour or running at about a 6-mph pace for 45 minutes can burn around 500 calories. Load up a fresh new playlist, lace up your shoes, pop on your bike helmet, and get moving.
