Is cardio the ultimate calorie burn?
Some people say so while others swear by weight lifting – so what is the best burn for you?

Kettlebell circuit training burns 554-822 calories/hour but it can keep the after-burn going for 36 hours after you leave the gym. To get the best results, do a continuous circuit and don’t stop for a rest in between each move.

Stairs are everywhere, and they give a good mix of aerobic and anaerobic exercise if you climb at a good rate. If you’re working at 77 steps/minute then you should be burning between 452-670 calories/hour. To fire up the upper body, try holding a dumbbell in each hand.
