No, you can lose more calories with Burpees. About 7-10 burpees can help you lose 14.3 calories per min. Also, moderate intensity rope jumping uses more muscle groups than jogging and helps burn 13 calories per min. Tabata jump squats burns around 13.4 cal per min and doubles post exercise metabolic rate. Airdyne bike sprints burn 87 cal per min.

Yes, we’ve heard this before. Running is a great form of exercise. It helps reduce stress and build stamina. Also, it doesn’t require any form of equipment and burns calories. However, there are a few exercises that can be more effective than running and can help you burn calories faster. Did you know that high intensity weight training can burn more calories than running and faster? Here are a few exercises that can help you burn more calories than running!

Exercises that burn more fat than running:

1. Burpees:

So, you can burn about 1.43 calories per burpee. So, you must try to make at least 7-10 a minute, and you’ll burn around 14.3 calories per minute. Performing 10 reps at a fast pace can improve your metabolism as much as a 30 second all out bike sprint.

2. Jumping rope:

Moderate intensity rope jumping, about 100 to 120 skips per minute can help you burn about 13 calories a minute. This form of exercises uses more muscle groups than jogging helps improve both your balance and coordination.

3. Tabata jump squats:

This exercise is great at improving your post exercise metabolic rate. So, those who did 8 rounds of these squats with about 20 seconds of active exercise and 10 seconds of rest burn 13.4 calories per minute and doubled their post-exercise metabolic rate for 30 minutes.

4. Airdyne Bike sprints:

This might sound unbelievable, but it’s possible to blast as much as 87 calories in one minute on this stationary bike that increases resistance as you pedal harder. The trick is to work as hard as you can for 60 seconds, and rest for a bit.

Yes I love the idea of cardio but I am very aware that my body does not like it. I loves walking and Pilates/yoga....I still get my heart rate up and get my sweat up \U0001f603

Not for everyone though. Running doesn't always help those people who have high cortisol levels and don't respond to stress very well.
