This Popular Exercise Burns More Calories Than Any Other
If you have ever wondered what exercise burns the most amount of calories, it turns out the answer is a popular and easily accessible form of working out: running.
According to the American Council on Exercise, a person weighing 130 pounds can burn approximately 206 calories in 30 minutes of jogging at a steady, slow pace.
The calorie burn from an exercise depends on factors including the workout's intensity, the individual's resting heart rate, weight, age, muscle mass, and the type of exercise.
Cardiovascular exercises, especially running, are generally higher in calorie expenditure due to the increased heart rate and engagement of multiple muscle groups.
Besides aiding in weight loss, running offers additional health benefits such as enhanced cardiovascular health, stronger muscles, and improved bone density.
