What’s the best running workout equivalent I can do?

I normally run everyday, but today there’s too much snow out to run, I don’t have a treadmill and there are no close gyms I can go to. What is a good workout I can do until I have the means of running again?

Jump rope. If you can do it for as long as your run that would be great but it might also be too much to start off with.

145 to 155 pounds – 4.0 calories burned per minute
160 to 170 pounds – 4.5 calories burned per minute
175 to185 pounds – 5.0 calories burned per minute
190 to 200 pounds – 5.5 calories burned per minute

Hope I helped!

Why do swimming and running burn the fastest?

If you combinded running and swimming (Hour and a half of running, hour of swimming.. moderate) how many calories would you burn? Are these the best exercises?

Id not worry about the amount of calories burnt off bec any excercise takes sometime just to burn a mere 500 calories off . But indeed those two running and swimming use the most muscles and are most recommended but id agree swimming is easiar body stress wise. If id was you id just do the ones i liked more the most. Key is to use different muscles each workout. Example you should bench press everyday but infact every second day bec muscles need time to grow .

Which is more effective for weight loss, walking 6 miles or cycling 6 miles a day?

NOTE – i really dont want to build muscle!

Basic law of exercise= faster is less efficient fuel usage and so burns more fuel per unit distance/time
Cycling is a better choice for burning fat as it’s faster than walking and so uses more energy

How long til i see running results?

im gonna be running this summer and i have big thighs and "love handles" and am a size 10 and im gonna be running every other day for half an hour to an hour (between one and two miles) and doing something in between on the other days…i wanna lose fat wherever i can (but want it more in the stomach/thigh areas) and im eating healthier already..
how long til i see results??

Everyone is different. Running a mile and walking a mile burns the same amount of calories. So I would recommend walking more at first. Build up your running mileage slowly to avoid injury. Be patient with yourself. Good things take time. And things that change slowly aren’t lost so quickly either. Good luck with your running!
