8 Fat Blasting Workouts

Introducing fun to fitness.

  1. Running
    Burns about 374 calories in 30 minutes.
    The major muscles activated during a run are legs, glutes and core; the highest calorie and fat burning muscles in our bodies. Swing your arms and alternate fast and slow intervals, or better yet, go uphill.
  2. Jumping Rope
    Burns about 340 calories in 30 minutes.
    Jumping on its own burns calories, so moving the rope gives your arms an extra workout. Switch up your speed and style of jumping; for example jumping on one foot, etc.
  3. Hoola Hoop
    Burns about 300 calories in 30 minutes.
    As easy as it looks, this workout will leave you breathless. An adult-sized hoop should reach your chest when you stand up. It might take a while to keep the hoop up at first, but once you get the hang of it, you’re set.
  4. Tennis
    Burns about 372 calories in 30 minutes.
    You don’t need a partner for this. Just find an area next to a wall or your garage door and hit the ball against it. Stand three to eight meters away, which will force you to hit harder. Alternate forehand and backhand shots to enhance the workout and try hitting the ball consistently for 50-100 strokes.
  5. Dancing
    Burns 221 calories in 30 minutes.
    A favorite workout; burning calories while moving to the beats you enjoy. To make it into a definite metabolism booster: keep the tempo high, choosing songs with fast rhythms and no rest between songs. Try downloading a dance workout to follow or gather some friends over and have a dance night instead of movie night.
  6. Power Walking
    Burns about 170 calories in 30 minutes.
    We mean walking quick enough that it’s hard to keep up a conversation. Take short quick steps, keeping your body upright, and pump your arms back and forth. Alternate two minutes of quick strides and one minute of jogging.
  7. Tabata
    A four-minute workout broken into 20-second intervals of work. You will leave your body with an amazing after-burn.
  8. Mountain Climbers, Burpees, Jumping Lunges/Squats
    These series of plyometric exercises are bound to leave you breathless within minutes, but the post-workout effect is worth it. They work large muscle groups, so the fat keeps burning even after the workout.

Note: Calorie burn estimates are based on the average weight
