Get Calorie Burning with These 7 WorkoutsIf you're a calorie counter and really want to know how much your workout is burning, here are 7 exercises proven to melt some serious cals.

Running. I bet you either love it or you hate it, but it’s a great way to burn a lot of calories – hopefully that will keep you motivated to run like the wind! It’s an easy exercise to get up and do because it doesn’t always require a treadmill or gym membership; you can just walk out your front door and go. Running can burn about 550 calories per hour.

Jumping rope. This fun, yet intense workout can burn about 750 calories. Jumping rope is a great warm up – start with 10 – 20 minutes before you begin your workout to get a good jump start on burning those pesky calories.

Swimming. A great workout that puts your joints at ease. And, since you’re using your whole body in this workout – not just your arms or legs – you can burn up to 650 – 700 calories in a hour swim.

HIIT (high intensity interval training). This workout is great because it switches things up throughout your work out. Before you know it, you’re done and burned a ton of calories. This workout involves short quick routines that are done at a fast pace, and you alternate different exercises with no rests in between. You’ll only have to do about 20 minutes to burn around 300 calories, without any cardio at all. For example: you might do 30 seconds of jumping jacks, then hit the floor and do 10 pushups, then another 30 seconds of jumping jacks, followed by 20 squats, then 20 sit-ups… and so on. It’s intense, that’s why it burns so much, so fast... then voila! You're done.

Kickboxing. This is a great full body workout. It’s a fun way to burn calories as well as get out some aggression. This is great for muscle building as you do your cardio. Burn up to 500 - 700 calories in a 40 minutes session.
