We have been inside for months on end it seems, doing the same workouts; treadmill runs, various exercise videos, and weight training to name a few.
The summer is here and it's time to move outdoors. I have attached a list of outdoor activities and calories burned.
Activity Calories burned per hour
Running 500 to 600
Walking 250 to 450
Biking about 500
Rollerblading up to 600-800 (WOW)
Tennis 400 to 500
Badminton 450 to 520
Swimming 450 to 700
Kayaking 200 to 400
Cornhole appx 150
Frisbee 220 to 300 Frisbee golf 400 to 600
Softball/baseball appx 350
Hiking 50 to 100
Golfing 250 to 480 (with a cart; 18 holes)
Fishing 130 to 175
The number of calories burned depends on your weight and the intensity of your level of play.
Studies show that we are more apt to stick to an exercise we enjoy so put on that sunscreen and head outdoors!
