5 Exercises That Burn More Calories Than Running



3 Workouts That Burn More Calories Than A 3-Mile Run

There's a reason running is such a mainstay on the fitness scene. It's a great workout, it's excellent for building endurance, and, in theory, all you need is and a pair of sneakers to get it done. Plus, it's a solid way to torch calories: A 150-pound woman running three miles in 30 minutes (that's a 10-minute-mile pace) will burn roughly 340 calories. That's 113 calories per mile—not bad!

But sometimes it's good to mix it up, and there are plenty of equally—or more—effective ways to work up a solid calorie burn than hitting the road for a three-mile run. (Bonus: They don't necessarily involve fancy equipment, boutique fitness studios, or wallet-busting gym memberships.) Here are three workouts that'll give your next run, well, a run for its money. 

If you've run on a treadmill in your life, you'll be able to relate to these thoughts every woman has had on the treadmill:

Descending interval workout

"As much as I adore running outdoors, I've learned that running isn't necessarily the fastest or most effective way to burn calories," says Daphnie Yang, an IISA Certified Personal Trainer and creator of HIIT IT!, an interval-style training workout in New York City. "It's important to constantly confuse your muscles in order to effectively burn calories and keep your fitness level from hitting a plateau." Yang's high-intensity interval training workout forces participants to train at their maximum effort in short bursts of time. "Training in this manner shocks your metabolism into high gear, torches calories, burns body fat, and sculpts lean muscle mass more effectively than running," she says.

Yang relies on a descending interval kind of training, which is different from a typical tabata-style program. "Tabata intervals—performing an exercise for 20 seconds and then recovering for 10 seconds for eight rounds—are fantastic for skyrocketing the heart rate, but I've found that 20 seconds isn't enough time to perform more complex and creative total-body movements," she says. "You need more time to get in enough repetitions to get the heart rate up into that crazy-high zone. It's more challenging than Tabata training and lets you sculpt the entire body while melting away fat. Your metabolism will stay elevated for hours after you finish your workout." (Speed up your progress towards your weight-loss goals withWomen's Health's.)

Calories burned: Each descending interval lasts just over eight minutes, and burns between 100 to 140 calories per interval, Yang says.

"This workout is different from a run because instead of going at a steady pace and keeping your heart rate consistent for 30 minutes, you'll be working through different heart-rate zones," says Chisel Club  creator and personal trainer Lauren Williams. This total-body workout includes strength work for the lower body, upper body, and core, and Williams "added some sprints in there, too, to get your heart rate up, work your legs, and torch calories."
