With the caption, "8 miles and made it to the top! Perfect way to start the day!," Lea Michele posted a gorgeous photo of her gazing at a mountaintop reaching into blue skies.
Hiking is one intense and inspiring workout! Aside from it toning the glutes and thighs and working your cardiovascular system, a 60kg woman burns 465 calories in just one hour of hiking uphill. And Lea and her friend Stephanie Levinson hiked for 12km, which probably took them at least two and a half hours — that's over 1,160 calories. And that doesn't count hiking back down! If you're looking for a great workout that burns major calories, tones your lower body, and gets you outside, get hiking!
