I hope all of you are doing fine. Sending love and prayers. Stay home and stay safe. With extensions in the lockdown, it has become imperative to workout at home. Every day workouts feel good and they would also help in shedding some weight, toning the body. Here is a quick post on how to burn 500 calories with a home workout.
Weight loss is a mathematical calculation. Calories out minus calories in is the equation. It is said that if we create a deficit of 3500 calories, we tend to lose 1 pound of body weight. It is better to perform 500 calorie workouts if you are keen on weight loss. With the 500 calorie workouts every day you should be losing 1 pound in approximately 7-8 days. Kindly note that I am not calculating food intake here. 🙂
We have been working out with Les Mills on Demand workouts and most of their workouts are 500 calorie burning workouts. There are approximately 9-10 numbers of 5 minute circuits. Each workout is 1 hour or 55 minutes. They cover warm up, and cool down along with core work with every workout.
Here are some of my favorite 500 calorie burning workouts.
This is a group workout, so the energy in this group is amazing. You do not feel you are pulling off a 500 calorie workout. I tried Body Attack 105 yesterday and it was amazing. They covered the following workouts:
- Warm Up
- Mixed Impact Work
- Aerobic Workout
- Plyometric Moves
- Athletic Strength
- Cool Down
It was a lovely workout with some new moves and I completely loved it. It did burn 500 calories. You can try it out at Les Mills On Demand Website.
Body combat has combat stances, kicks and other combination of martial art workouts. It is amazing to learn Karate, Muay Thai, Tai Chi moves in one single workout. Who knows all of it anyway? 🙂 I personally like Rachel Newsham’s workouts, so it is a double bonanza. These workouts definitely burn 500 calories and are quite exhausting but you would enjoy with all that music. Les Mills have the best in class workout music. Body Combat has released invincible series of their workouts which are free. You can try it here.
With above workouts you are sure to torch those 500 calories. Try it and let me know if you liked it.
