Adding Ten Minutes to Your Workout Burns More Calories

Do an Extra Ten, It's Worth It

One thing that I have been doing is adding on an extra ten minutes onto my cardio workout once a week.
In the grand scheme of things, ten minutes is really nothing — in the calorie burning scheme of things, it's a significant amount. Here's how it breaks down:

Ten minutes of . . .

  • Walking (3 mph) burns 50 more calories
  • Swimming burns 69 more calories
  • Jogging burns 80 more calories
  • StairMaster burns 80 more calories
  • Rowing Machine burns 99 more calories
  • Elliptical trainer burns 129 more calories
  • Stationary Bicycle burns 129 more calories
  • Running (12 mph) burns 254 more calories

All the calculations above are based on a 150 lb. person, so think about adding on ten minutes to your next workout and you'll be burning major calories.
