These workouts burn more calories than jogging

Jogging is a great cardio workout that you can do both indoors and outdoors. And yes, it is fun and burns loads of calories (think approximately 440 calories if you jog for 45 minutes, at a moderate pace). But if you are looking to up the ante and lose some more weight, here are a few other activities that you can try out:

Walking uphill with a load

Walking uphill with a load

Fill up your backpack with some extra weight and find slopes around you that you can climb. Or go for a hike. An uphill climb will help you burn approximately 550 calories per hour. In fact, the more you weigh, the more calories you will burn in an hour of hiking. Up the pace if you want to burn more.

Dancing

Putting on your favourite music and jiving not only releases those happy hormones, but has other advantages too. This aerobic activity can help you burn more than 443 calories per hour. So, are you heading to the club tonight?

Jumping rope

The humble skipping rope is a part of every athlete's kit for a reason. According to the British Rope Skipping Association, one hour of skipping can help you burn up to 1,300 calories. No wonder celebs like Sonakshi Sinha have taken to it in such a big way.

Rowing

Rowing
Whether you are headed to the nearest waterbody or trying out the rowing machine in the neighbourhood gym, this fun activity makes you really sweat it out, and gives your arms and legs a killer workout. Not to mention that it also helps knock off 682 calories in an hour-long, high-intensity session.

Boxing

Feeling particularly aggressive at the moment? Head to a boxing ring to take it all out and also lose some weight in the process. When you work out with a heavy bag, you can expect to burn between 354 and 558 calories per hour. Or you can give it a twist and try out kickboxing which burns an average of 600 calories per hour, according to Harvard Health Publications.
