Lea Michele Hiking

Lea Michele's Back Doing One of Her Favourite Workouts

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!
