    Running isn’t ‘for’ everyone. If you are one of those people who would rather eat rocks than go for a jog, you’re in for some good news. Running is not the most efficient method of burning calories. The average person burns an average of 10 calories per minute while running. Here are 10 exercises that rank higher than running when it comes to calorie burn:

    1. Kettlebell Swings

    These exercises help you burn calories and sculpt a lean figure. They are great for sculpting the glutes and quads while giving your body an overall workout.

    2. Burpees

    [​IMG]

    Burpees are great for reducing excess body fat. The American College of Sports Medicine found that a 180 pound man could burn almost 1.5 calories per burpee. Those numbers only get better when you ramp up the number of burpees you do in a short time. Try for 10 burpees/60 seconds.

    3. Jumping Rope

    Jumping rope gets your heart rate up and improves balance and coordination. A moderate intensity jump rope session burns 13 calories a minute.

    4. Battle Ropes

    These workouts seem to the be the key to ramping up fitness. These exercises achieve a calorie burn of nearly 10.5 per minute.

    5. Walking Uphill With A Load

    Walking on an incline gets difficult. Walking on an incline while carrying weight is even more difficult. You can burn around 415 calories an hour while walking at a moderate pace. AND, this is a pretty cost effective exercise as all you need is a strong backpack, some rocks and a hill.

    6. Dancing

    [​IMG]

    Dancing is great fun AND it burns calories. Dancing burns up to 443 calories and hour! So, next time you’re in the club, hit the floor!

    7. Rock Climbing

    [​IMG]

    Rock climbing is a fun, challenging workout that ramps up adrenaline and overall fitness. Climbing can burn you up to 455 calories an hour.

    8. Inline Skating

    [​IMG]

    Although it seems easy, skating provides a really intense calorie burning workout that serves as a great substitute for running.

    9. Rowing

    [​IMG]

    Rowing burns an insane amount of calories. Per hour, you can burn up to 682! Rowing is one of the most intense, and effective, exercises you can add to your routine.

    10. Boxing

    Boxing doesn’t just make you feel tough, it will make you super fit. The average boxing session burns around 727 calories per hour.
