3 Exercises That Burn 200 Calories in Less Than 3 Minutes
When you want to yield the best results in a very small amount of time, you’re going to need to utilize some of the best calorie-burning exercises out there. I see too many people doing low-intensity steady state cardio for long durations and hating every minute of it. Why put yourself through the pain and agony of long, drawn-out exercises that yield you very little return when it comes to burning calories? Stop the madness!
This article will show you three exercises that burn 200 calories in less than 3 minutes. You can utilize these as a stand-alone cardio workout, as a quick way to burn calories throughout the day or incorporate them into your resistance workouts (between sets) to increase the total calories burned.
Before you engage in any of these exercises, you should be medically cleared by your doctor to ensure you are healthy enough to engage in these intense exercises.
To complete these exercises, you can do them in bursts of 30 seconds before taking a very short breather or tough it out and go for the full three minutes all at once (which isn’t going to be easy). By keeping the intensity as high as possible, you will keep the calories burning even after you are done with your three minutes of intense exercise. Due to the afterburn effects of the exercise(s), you will burn an additional 200 calories the days you complete any or all of the exercises listed below.
Feel the BURN
- Jump Squats
This exercise has you drop down into a squat position before exploding back up and jumping into the air. The movement should be swift and fluid while ensuring the intensity of the exercise is high.
An exercise we have all come to love to hate are burpees. To do a burpee, you need to squat down and put your hands on the floor in front of you slightly. Kick your legs back behind you to put yourself in a push-up position. Lower yourself to complete a push-up and immediately following the push-up, bring your feet back up towards your hands in an explosive motion putting you back into a squat. Then explode up and jump as high as you can before starting the exercise all over again.
- Stairs Running
This is pretty self-explanatory. To complete this exercise, you run up and down the stairs keeping the intensity as high as possible while still maintaining your safety on the stairs.
