Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/29/2014 -- For many planning their workouts time is of the essence. Between full-time jobs and full-time family obligations, fitness often gets pushed to the back of the priority line. But for those looking to increase activity and burn loads of calories in a short amount of time, they need look no further than these major ways to burn calories in the quickest amount of time.
If a person has just a few moments and some space, plyometric movements can blast out calories in as little as ten minutes, and work the body enough to build strong muscles in the core, legs and back. The key to these explosive exercises – which often include box jumps, jumping jacks, and explosive jumping lunges – is to keep the moves quick and land softly to engage all the muscle groups and keep the joints safe.
Another form of exercise similar to plyometric is Tabata training, a form of high intensity interval exercise movements. It’s four minutes of high intensity movements, working at maximum ability for 20 seconds and then taking 10 seconds of rest. Two or three rounds of this routine, which could include sprints or jumps, will get the heart pumping and calories burning faster than one can count them.
If time in the gym is limited check out a Kettlebell class. The multiplanar movements of swinging and lifting these weights can burn up to 400 calories in as little as twenty minutes. The reason for this is how much the body is moving and the fact that all the muscles are engaged to both lift the weight and balance the body.
Even if a workout is short, the body will still show results over a period of time as long as a sweat is broken during these shorter, high intensity routines. A recent study showed just 20 minutes of exercise can alter DNA in the muscle and improve metabolism, which can help burn more calories overall – even while the body is sedentary. These programs will allow any person, no matter their time restraints, to find time for exercise in their daily lives.
