50 Easy Ways to Burn 100 Calories

Torch Your Way to the Top with These Activities


    If only you really could do some exercises, right to the minute, in order to lose a certain amount of weight, life would be a breeze, but the body does not work that way. Why is it always "100" calories? We are not machines that can be programmed. - 1/21/2015 4:34:59 AM
  • Playing drums through a 90 minute set , fun workout - 1/21/2015 1:48:47 AM
    I am grateful for this site.Because it shows me a specific way to burn more calories. - 11/14/2014 4:14:48 AM
    the only problem with these estimates, is that they are just that, estimates. Every body burns calories differently. - 10/14/2014 2:06:42 PM
    a lot of the things listed surprised me for the time it took. I walk 4x's a week at lunch and do water aerobics 3 most on the list is a no no for me - 10/5/2014 6:43:23 PM
  • It took a minute to realize why walking with a dog requires 6 more minutes to burn the same amount of calories as walking alone...then I figured it out. - 6/16/2014 11:45:43 AM
    I was surprised for some of the times listed especially house work - 6/14/2014 2:13:19 AM
  • This reminds me to track house cleaning! I didn't realize how many calories we burn. Thank you for the info. - 3/10/2014 5:02:59 PM
    Oh my. No wonder I want to eat so much! I have a 1 year old and 2 year old and am a stay at home mom 5-6 days a week and a critical care nurse 1-2 days a week. Never really thought about the calories I burn just from caring for my sons. This article was eye opening. - 3/3/2014 1:41:30 PM
    I have a hard time believing that 8 min on the elliptical is the same calorie burn as jumping rope for 9 min. Jumping rope for 9 minutes is like sprinting for 9 min. The elliptical just doesn't give you the same workout. - 11/18/2013 11:06:49 AM
  • Very useful; I'm glad that using an Elliptical Trainer or running stairs is high up, and boy am I ever glad that I live on the third floor and without an elevator! That probably saved me a few pounds already over the years. - 11/6/2013 5:40:43 PM
  • Thanks for sharing. - 10/14/2013 6:58:07 AM
  • My favorite way to burn 100 calories (and quickest way) is 5 minutes of kettlebell swings! Working out with a kettlebell really gets your heart pumping! - 10/11/2013 8:49:32 AM
  • When I put 8 minutes on the elliptical on the fitness tracker page I only get 78 calories burned :( - 10/10/2013 6:16:29 PM
  • I never thought about carrying an infant. How about carrying an 18 month old, 25 lb toddler up and down hill? - 10/6/2013 7:05:02 PM
