6 Exercises That Burn More Calories Than Running

Needing to get your cardio in can be a struggle when all you’re going to do is run on the treadmill or have a jog outside.  Is it just us or are treadmill minutes the LONGEST ever?!

Well to keep you more motivated to get your dose of cardio in we’ve got some exercises that will burn more calories than running.  We also have the apparel to go with it so you’re prepared for a sweaty cardio session, whatever it may be.

On top of that, get ready for whatever cardio you choose with our pre-workout. They’re designed to give you a great pump whilst providing sustained energy which is perfect for cardio.  Not only that, our pre-workout helps you focus and promotes muscle growth and we all know that the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn at rest! Our blends of Pre-Workout contain vital ingredients including electrolytes, BCAAs, CarnoSyn Beta Alanine, Beetroot, Creatine Hydrochloride, and thermogenic compounds.


You don’t need to sign up to a fancy club and or get a training partner.  Most gyms have a heavy bag that you can punch. You can get out all your anger and stress for the day whilst burning up to 800 calories an hour too!

Jump Rope

If you’re getting into boxing, you may as well go full Rocky and try jump rope too.  You could burn around 13 calories a minute and it uses more muscle groups than jogging.  It also challenges your balance and coordination skills so what’s not to love?

Kettlebell Swing

This is such an explosive and powerful exercise that will also help you build your muscle.  You would burn around 20 calories a minute with this exercise. Obviously, this would be pretty tough to do for an hour but we recommend a 20-minute workout or working it into a circuit!

Rowing Machine

You can burn over around 120 calories with just 10 minutes of rowing and it’s great to train your whole body.  It brings your legs, arms and back muscles in to play. We think it is a bit more exciting than running and if you have a calorie goal, you won’t have to be doing cardio for as long!


The exercise we all definitely have a love/hate relationship with.  Yes, they’re a killer but there is a reason for that. They’re a total body burner and you can burn around 15 calories a minute if you’re doing about 10 per minute.  We promise that you can learn to love them once you see the benefits they have on your body!

Battle Ropes

Another exercise that could burn you up to 10 calories a minute. Yes, that might be pretty similar to running but we personally think it’s more fun.  There are loads of different things you can do with them too. You can use alternating arms to thrash the rope to the floor or you could stand in a squat position and use your arms in sync.
