The BEST calorie burning workouts from home!

Working out at home has become very popular in the past few years, especially since the pandemic started and our beloved gyms closed.

Even if you were stopped from working out at your fav gym, the great news is that there are a million different ways to work up a sweat at home! With a little time management and some determination, you can make sure you always have a way to get a workout in – even if you cannot make the gym!

When it comes to calorie burn, some workouts burn maximum calories in a short space of time, for example HIIT workouts, while others build strength and lean muscle, which helps you to sustainably burn calories for longer periods.

A few of the top workouts you can do at home include indoor cycling which burns approximately 852 calories per hour, rowing which burns approximately 716 calories per hour or the trusted jumping rope burning a whopping 702 calories per hour! If you do not have home based gym equipment then you can always burn up to 500 calories in 30 mins just by climbing stairs with a couple of hand weights. 

However, if you are someone who enjoys working out with a trainer, being held accountable in a class environment and for that extra motivational push, then the Les Mills Bodypump workout will certainly tick these boxes. Using the best technology, Les Mills developed their 'on demand' platform allowing you to take part in their classes, all from home.

During a BODYPUMP workout you'll raise your heart rate and increase calorie burn, but more importantly, you'll strengthen, shape and tone your entire body, while also improving bone density.

Burning between 400-500 calories in a single class, you will also build lean muscle which will assist in raising your metabolism and burn calories effectively even after you have finished working out!

While you can expect to burn an impressive amount of calories during a 55-minute BODYPUMP workout, it’s the building of lean muscle mass that provides the long-term benefits.

By building lean muscle mass during a weight class, you increase your body’s ability to effectively burn calories in the long term, as the extra muscle will raise your metabolism.

If 400-500 calories isn't good enough, apparently Les Mills Program Director Glen Ostergaard has recorded up to 850 calories burned during BODYPUMP!
