Healthy Girl! Fridays: What cardio exercise burns the most calories?

Posted Jan 06 2012 4:00am
Today's Workout: 4 miles (planned)/Supreme 90-Tabata Inferno

Heyyyy Brickhouses!!

TGIF!!! Soooo glad it's Fridayyyyy!! This week was so interesting! I ran 15 miles (11 at press time) in all!! Real talk, that is probably the most I have run consistently in my entire life!! I'm feeling good ya'll :)
Yesterday was my rest day for running, but NOT for Supreme 90. I just flat out didn't wake up at 5:15 as I have scheduled to do it! So this morning I have Tabata Inferno which I am not exactly looking forward to! Tabata feels good at first, once you hear "It's only 20 seconds on 10 seconds off" you get excited! But at the end your muscles are SCREAMING!!! Remember when Coach Christian did a Tabata workout with me? Check it out here .
I plan on doing a vlog recap of this week's workouts and lessons learned sometime this weekend! I got a lot of positive feedback which encouraged me to do another one! If you want to make sure you don't miss it, make sure to subscribe to my YT channel here

Q.   I have been working out on my treadmill at home for 45 mins a day and I’m noticing that I am not burning the amount of calories that I would normally burn on the elliptical...I avg. like 200 cals on the treadmill and about double that on an elliptical for the same time period. How can I maximize my workout efforts for the best results with my home gym? I have free weights and a weight machine but nothing beats an elliptical work out I use to get going to a gym. Should I just buy an elliptical? HELP!

A.   Hey Chya!
Yours is a simple fix! The treadmill (with out any incline) is only working in one direction, where as the elliptical is working in multiple directions, hence the larger burn.
For similar results on the treadmill and the elliptical, push up the incline to about a 5 when you're working on the treadmill. You'll burn about the same amount of calories while getting an intense workout (your legs are definitely gonna feel it, trust me!) I hope that helps!
