10 easy ways to burn 100+ calories

By  |  0 Comments

Your metabolic rate is the rate at which you burn calories. For some (lucky) people, their metabolic rate is naturally fast; therefore, they’re able to eat way more junk food without gaining weight. For the rest of us, we need to work to speed up our metabolism so that we can see weight loss results. Of course, while what you eat plays a huge part, it’s also down to how much you move throughout the day.

Here are 10 easy ways to burn at least 100 calories by completing some basic exercises, chores, or simply changing up your lifestyle a little.

1. Mow the lawn
If your garden is long overdue some TLC, get outside and mow the lawn. Doing this for only 20 minutes can burn up to 119 calories.

2. Dip in the pool
Swimming freestyle for about an hour burns almost 500 calories; so imagine how few lengths you need to do to only burn 100.

3. Take the stairs instead
Are you prone to taking the lift only a few floors? You’ll be surprised at how much better you feel after a week of taking the stairs instead.

4. 20 minutes of yoga
Some easy yoga poses while you’re waiting for the kettle to boil can burn more calories than you think. Take it to 20 minutes, and you’ll have shed around 100.

5. Scrub your tub
It’s a household task we all hate doing, but when you consider that a deep clean can burn over 100 calories, your bathroom will never be unclean again.

6. Squat while you wait
Be productive with your spare time and start squatting. This simple exercise doesn’t only burn calories, but it can help to tone your buttocks, thighs, and calves and improve strength and endurance.

7. Run a mile
Without a doubt, one of the quickest ways to burn 100+ calories is by running. You don’t have to be Usain Bolt to blast away fat, just take it easy and you’ll soon see improvements.

8. Dig up those weeds
Another otherwise mundane garden task such as digging up weeds can burn 100 calories every 25 minutes. If you enjoy gardening, you could also consider planting a vegetable garden to help kick-start your healthy lifestyle.

9. Hoover up
Much like mowing the lawn, hoovering can work as cardio to burn over 100 calories for every 20-25 minutes you’re working.

10. Skip the sweet treat
It’s a no-brainer – foregoing the calories altogether is undoubtedly the easiest way to eliminate them. The office treat bowl might tempt you, but quitting the habit will mean less time figuring out ways to burn it off. Why not start a new healthy habit instead such as a boot camp?
