Do you burn 800 calories in your current workout? Would you like to know what exercise allows you to burn 800 calories in 60 minutes?
Imagine how much faster you can drop body fat if you burned 800 calories, considering that 3,500 calories is equivalent to one pound. Lets take a look at what 800 calories looks like.
If you burned up 800 calories in four days, that would be 3,200 calories. Thats only 300 calories away from one pound. If you ate a Cheesecake Factory slice of cheesecake, that would set you back 610 calories. If you ate a Whopper with cheese from Burger King, it would cost you about 760 calories, according to the eaterys Web site.
A 16-ounce (grande) Caramel Frappuccino (with whipped cream) from Starbucks would cost you about 430 calories. Just coffee, right? Think again. The venti size is the largest offered by the chain at 24 ounces, and Im not even going to mention the calorie content in that one.
Fitness boxing: 800 calories burned
Fitness boxing is an all-conditioning exercise that incorporates the use of your arms in ways that other methods of cardiovascular exercise may not. With boxing, you are constantly active by throwing punches, moving your body from side to side and bobbing and weaving (thats dipping under punches) and you are also engaging your lower body.
Anyone who has ever done any kind of boxing can tell you that legs start getting fatigued as the intensity increases. Because of the bodys constant movement, it is forced to utilize energy from calories to meet the demands that it faces. Extra energy is burned when performing other activities that complement a fitness boxing workout, such as jumping rope, push-ups, abdominal exercises, squats and other exercises. But dont take my word for it.
Google boxing and calories burned and you will find several articles on the subject. Many of them state that boxing workouts amount to 800 calories burned. But the best way for you to know is to experience it. Try a session with a trainer. Go to a local boxing gym and take a class. Get some lessons before you begin, if youre new to it.
Hitting something and releasing all that stress is a relief not to mention that fitness boxing places little if any impact on the lower bodys joints, making it safe to do. Try it. And try it today.
