7. Rowing [500-600 calories/hour]
You know that machine in the corner of the gym that all-too-often sits unused? The rowing machine is something you should definitely be using! People might stay away from this machine because they don’t know how to use it, or perhaps because they wrongly assume it is just an upper body exercise! That notion couldn’t be more misguided.
Rowing is a full body exercise that works the biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, glutes, quads, hamstrings and corer body. In addition to all this strength training, keep in mind that the cardio benefits of rowing are intense! According to Harvard Health Studies rowing burns between 250-300 calories in a 30-minute session.
Give some of these cardio workouts a try to burn calories, keep your heart healthy, and speed up your weight loss. Paired with strength training, it’s an unbeatable combination that will have you feeling healthy, lean, and strong.
