No Gym, No Problem – Part 3

Total Body Workout You Can Do Anywhere!

With summer right around the corner, you may want to take your workout outdoors. Mixing up your location and exercises makes workouts more enjoyable. Take a look at how many calories you can burn in an hour with these outdoor activities.

Activity = Calories per hour

Roller Blading =  300

Volleyball (recreational) = 203

Swimming (moderate) = 359

Running (5 mph) =  359

Walking (3 mph) =  413

Gardening =  257

Soccer =  413

Badminton = 265

Biking (12 mph) =  515

Frisbee = 179

Hiking = 351

Washing car = 265

Water Aerobics = 234

Golf (carrying clubs) = 359

Note: The calories showed above are based on a 130-pound individual. This will not give the exact calorie burn, but it will give you an idea of what activities burn the most calories. I would suggest wearing a heart rate monitor if you want to know the exact calorie burn of your workouts.

Be sure to check out the previous “No Gym No Problem” articles for other out-of-gym ideas.  Remember— you can always do your plyometrics, a variety of the above or take your weights outside.
