5 Exercises That Burn More Fat Than Running
The biggest myth in the fitness industry has to be that running burns the maximum calories. Well, it does burn a lot of calories, but certainly not the most. Working out at a high intensity for small intervals of time burns the most calories in reality. In short, high intensity interval training burns the maximum number of calories. Here are 5 exercises, which when done at a high intensity, can burn more fat than running.
If there’s one body weight exercise that can kick your ass, it has to be burpees. A single burpee can burn up to 1.43 calories, so if you get 10 per minute, you’re burning 14.3 calories per set. Burpees are also known for improving metabolism.
2) Kettlebell Swings
The most underrated workout in Indian gyms, Kettlebell swings puts to work your abdominal muscles, shoulder muscles and back muscles. When done at a high intensity, you can burn up to 20 calories per minute.
3) Jump Rope/ Speed Rope

4) Indoor Rowing Machine
A rowing workout can burn up to 400 calories in 30 minutes and most importantly, work out the large muscle groups in the back, chest, shoulder and the abdominal area.
