I’ll bet you’ve been invited to a few summer weddings. So don’t sit this one out. Whether the DJ is playing “I’ve Got a Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas or “the Chicken Dance”, get your butt up and on the dance floor. Act silly. Have fun. Make memories. And burn calories.
#2 – Relax in the Garden for 30 Minutes
Good ol’ gardening burns off 300 calories an hour so get out there and enjoy the summer sunshine. It’s so much better than being stuck on a treadmill, and you get to eat the fruits of your labor, too.
#3 – The OAF STYLE: A 15-Minute Circuit
This is tough, but research shows Kettlebell exercises can burn up to 20 calories per minute, and bodyweight exercises burn nearly 15 calories per minute.
1) Kettlebell Swings – 45 seconds, rest 15 seconds
2) Spiderman Pushups or Regular Pushups – 45 seconds, rest 15 seconds
3) Bodyweight Squats – 45 seconds, rest 15 seconds
4) Kettlebell Swings – 45 seconds, rest 15 seconds
5) Jumping Jacks – 45 seconds, rest 15 seconds
Repeat the circuit 3 times and you’ll have incinerated 200 calories – not to mention the calories that you’ll shed in the Afterburn period thanks to the BURN you just put on your muscles. That does NOT happen when you do slow cardio workouts, but only when you do my short, burst style sessions. Always giving you an added bonus!
#4 – Tire Out & Clean Up Your Kids
According to LiveStrong.com, bathing your kids burns 260 calories per hour (must involve a lot of wrestling?) and playing with your kids can burn up to 350 calories per hour. And if you’ve ever tried to bath a dog, you can probably burn 700 calories per hour.
