DO YOUR CROSS-TRAINING WORKOUTS NEED A BIT OF INSPIRATION? Calorie counting can turn into an unhappy activity that sabotages healthy eating habits and takes the joy out of physical exercise. However, knowing that a specific activity is burning off calories (and potentially unwanted body fat weight) at a significant rate can boost enthusiasm for workouts performed on non-running days and help avoid burnout from boring, unchanging training routines.
Stephanie Smith wrote a slideshow piece, “8 Workouts that Burn the Most Calories” for Active.com that might put some ‘zing’ into your cross-training days. Each slide discusses a different activity and its calorie consuming potential. There’s something for everyone.
