Treadmill Intervals

Looking to burn calories fast? Try interval training. It involves alternate cycles of high and moderate intensity, giving you advantages over exercising at a steady rate. Interval training allows you to burn more calories even after you have exercised. You can easily find several interval training workouts on the internet, however, you can create your own. The basic principle you will need to follow here is to run at 85 -90 percent of your speed for some time, then slowing down to a moderate pace for the same duration.


If you have joint related issues, it is recommended that you avoid running or using treadmill. However, trying swimming would be a better option because it does not exert as much pressure as running does on your joints. Though it could be more demanding physically. Swimming is a good choice for alternative exercise as it can help you burn 800 calories in just 45 – 60 minutes.

Cycling Sprints

You will be surprised to know that you can burn close to 1000 calories in just an hour by cycling at 16 mph to 19 mph. Try interval sprinting as hard as you can for a minute every few minutes to push yourself further and increase the heart rate.

Boxing Workouts

Now take a skipping rope and jump continuously for 45 seconds, followed by short break of 30 seconds. Do this sequence for 19 more times. If you can complete this cycle, you are on your way to have a boxer body.
