And doesn't doing the same routine make us eventually feel bored? Here we will show you how to add fun in your usual plain, boring exercises. We enumerated for you some enjoyable ways of blasting off the calories while keeping the excitement alive! Try these cardio and toning exercises without feeling that you are actually doing exercise at all.
1. Shake It Calories Burnt: 600/800 cal/hr
Don't you just gasp in awe watching "So You Think You Can Dance?" with how toned and lithe those dancers' bodies are? All the right curves at the right places, lean muscles, proper posture, great balance! This is because dancing targets the whole body allowing as many muscle groups to work at the same time so you are actually shaking off from head to toe8. Aside from the fact that it is a great stress buster, dancing also develops your creativity and makes you more flexible with each session. It is a fabulous exercise for both the body and the mind. Learn creative moves, sexy steps and challenge your creativity. It has been quite a popular trend nowadays considering belly dancing, pole dancing, zumba, hip - hop abs and all the other exercise that incorporate dancing with it. What makes it more exciting is you could do it anywhere be it in the gym, the dance studio, your home even in the office! Just turn that beat on, and let your dance moves shake off those extra calories.
2. Take It to the Pool Calories Burnt: 800 cals/hr
Tired of your usual jogs and the leg cramps or injuries you get after? If you are one of the many who complain of muscle pain after a run or a jog or even a walk but do not want to quit on the cardio, try taking it to the pool. Swimming is an extremely great cardio exercise that tones up your whole body without the same muscle pain you get when doing it on the ground. You exercise in water so it rids you of the amount of gravity that pulls you when doing ground exercises. An hour of swimming can actually burn eight hundred calories (800 cal) of your body. For more fun ways of exercising, try setting up a pool party for you and your friends and swim those extra calories off! You could also plan Sunday swim days for the whole family. That way, you are in fact squeezing in an exercise day without even making it appear like exercise at all!
3. Do the Cycle Calories Burnt: 500 - 1000 cal/hr
If you feel like you want to go site - seeing while exercising, whoever said you are crazy? Doing both things at the same time is highly possible with cycling. It is a very enjoyable exercise that could burn you up to one thousand calories (1,000 cal) an hour! This kind of exercise gets your mind off from the pressure and the tension your body builds up in strength training or in the gym. It is a fun way of riding of the stress while burning those excess calories. If you are a home - buddy type of person, you can go for a stationary bike and ride on it while watching TV or even while reading a magazine! The best part is you don't even get to notice that you have been torching those calories off since you also are focused on watching your favourite show or reading that daily horoscope while on your exercise bike.
