Life can really get busy and hectic at times, so much so that it even gets hard to try to squeeze half an hour of workout in between.
Unfortunately, as we don’t get time to work out, the calories always seek their way in.
But don’t worry; there are at least 5 amazing moves through which you can sizzle away 100 calories within 10 minutes. You can do this at work, at home, or even when you’re traveling and staying in a hotel room.
1. Stairs Paired With Burpees
There will always be a staircase near your home, work or any random place you’re at. Since you only have ten minutes, your heart rate needs to be up and your exercise should contain variance.
Warm up and then climb up a set of stairs fast, do five burpees on top, climb down just as fast, five burpees below, go up the stairs again and repeat.
Do this for ten minutes straight and those 100 calories will be nowhere to be seen.
2. Jump Rope
Pick up the rope and begin to jump non-stop for ten minutes straight. As soon as your heartbeat increases and you begin to sweat profusely, know that your body has started burning calories faster than you can imagine.
Jumping rope is so effective that you’ll burn 100 calories in just 7 minutes. If you’re not a pro at jumping rope then use those extra 3 minutes break to stop and march in place. This will help your body rest while still burning mega calories.
As an added bonus, jumping rope will really build up your stamina.
Kickboxing workout is a powerful strength training workout that blasts away 107 calories in just 10 minutes. Make sure the set you are doing focuses on cardio as much as on kicking and boxing techniques.
Additionally, kickboxing is also extremely fun and entertaining and allows you to direct all your energy.
If you’re at home with kids around you then let them help you burn 10 calories in 10 minutes. Pick a ball and enjoy an exciting game of kickball, basketball or football. You can even play a competitive game of tag and burn 100 calories in 10 minutes.
Don’t take these games lightly, they are high-intensity workouts and you’ll be a huffing mess (sans 100 calories) by the end of it.
Run away with those 100 calories for 10 miles and you’ll return 100 calories lighter. Running is perhaps one of the best exercises to exist and does not even require you to run fast to lose calories.
Put on the songs with the fastest beats on your phone and run for the length of three songs.
These easy workouts will not only help you burn 100 calories but will also help you take a break from the busy schedule and build up your stamina. Shaped and toned arms and legs will be other bonuses of these quick workouts.
