The sun is out and the beach is calling. Swimsuit season is here, and it should be a time to rejoice and celebrate the warm weather. However, it also tends to be a time of stress. Why? Because while the weather can change at the drop of the hat, transforming into your beach body isn’t always so instant. And when it comes to getting bathing suit savvy, cutting calories is one of the biggest obstacles.
But fear not, warm weather wanderers! There are some killer exercises out there that burn the most calories and get the best results. In fact, there are workout staples that can burn up to 500 calories, or more, in just a couple sessions.
Of course, there are many scam workouts claiming to help you burn even more. And keep in mind different body types burn calories at different rates. (Even though one pound of fat is cumulative to 3,500 calories, weight and age play a factor in how those calories are burned.) So, we did a little research to find the best results. Using Breaking Muscle’s calorie-burning chart as our guide, we scoured the internet to find the most well-received workouts. Here are 15 that will help you burn 500 calories or more — just in time for swimsuit season.
