  1. Your whole body works while you’re swimming.

    Your legs kick, your arms stroke, your core contracts to keep you afloat. With that much muscle recruitment, it ranks as one of the top calorie-burning cardio exercises you can do.

    But your stroke choice can make a difference.

    A 155-pound person burns 372 calories in 30 minutes doing the breast stroke — an impressive number.

    But that same person doing the butterfly for 30 minutes will burn 409 calories.

    Where you swim makes a difference too.

    “Swimming in the ocean where you’re going against the current — that would be a really, really intense workout,” says ACSM spokesperson Jim White.

  2. Sprint Intervals

    Running, biking or swimming at a steady state is enough to burn some serious calories, especially if you’re just starting out.

    But if you up your pace for periods of time during your workout and you’ll increase the burn even more. “Sprinting burns a massive amount of calories, but it can only be kept up for a certain amount of time,” explains American College of Sports Medicine spokesperson Jim White.

    A 155-pound person who runs at a pace of 7.5 miles per hour can burn 465 calories in 30 minutes. Try alternating between two minutes at an all-out pace (or the fastest you can sustain for that long), and then recover with one minute of jogging, White recommends.
