Running is a great way to lose fat and shed pounds! But, not all of us love pounding the pavement. Running can seem like a daunting task, and we can definitely dread it. Not everyone was born to be a runner! If you have been trying to shed some pounds but dislike running, then you will want to hear about these next exercises that burn more fat than running.

  1. Jumping jacks: Doing jumping jacks will help burn fat because you are forcing your body to use multiple muscles at once. Increased heart rate + using multiple muscles at the same time = a recipe for fat loss.
  2. Stair climber: This is one of my favorite machines at the gym. This gives you an amazing leg workout and is easier on your joints than running. This machine can give you the same muscle benefits that running can without stressing your joints as much.
  3. Swimming: Swimming may be one of the best forms of cardio there is. You are working muscles all over your body! Because swimming causes you to use so much energy, it is great for burning fat.

Next time you find yourself dreading your run, remember that there are other ways to burn fat! You can get in some great cardio by doing the exercises listed above.
