Home Workout Help: How to Burn 300 Calories

When heading to the gym or your favourite workout studio is not an option, sweating at home can be just as effective with the right plan and workout equipment. The following ideas will help you burn at least 300 calories in under an hour.

Start jumping: You can't go wrong with jumping rope; 35 minutes will do the trick. If you're concerned about losing steam, move through an interval plan that consists of five minutes of jumping, alternating with one-minute rest periods; it will take a few minutes longer, but you'll keep up your momentum and enthusiasm the whole way through.
Dance it out: A high-energy dance fitness DVD will burn over 300 calories in under 40 minutes. Beyond a solid workout, dancing is an amazing stress buster.
Give your room a face-lift: Surprisingly, re-arranging furniture can burn a ton of calories — well over 300 — in 50 minutes. This won't be an option for an everyday workout, unless you get bored with your room faster than most, but it would make for a fun weekend workout with extraproductive purpose!
Take the stairs:
Taking the stairs at home can burn calories quickly and is a great idea for anyone who can't afford a gym membership but lives in a tall building.
Transform tube time: Tune into your favourite hour-long show, but don't sit down like a couch potato. Move through a moderate calisthenics the whole way through — even through commercials. This multitasking technique will change your relationship with TV time.
