Exercises to burn calories: effective ways for those with little time

There are various types of training depending on the results you want to achieve. If you want to lose weight, or define your muscles well after a loading period, then you need to burn a large number of calories. In addition, more and more people want to keep fit but do not have enough time to workout consistently.

Therefore, it is necessary to find ways to exercise as much as possible, burning as many calories as possible in as little time as possible. Obviously, cardio exercises are the best. Running is perfect, but it puts a lot of strain on the joints and can cause even serious problems if you do not have the right equipment (for example, the correct shoes).

We propose below a series of exercises, most also possible from home without equipment, to burn lots of calories in a short time. Remember that the number of calories burned is not absolute but depends on various factors, such as duration of exercise, pace, intensity, weight, and height. In general, the more you weigh, the more calories you will burn during exercise.
