Here’s How Many Calories You Burn with Your Go-to Workout

Slashing unwanted pounds comes down to a simple equation: Torch more calories than you take in. And while that’s a nonnegotiable, how you zap and rack up the calories burned aren’t. That means you can slash up to 700 calories a week any way to want. Whether you want to slay 100 calories daily or erase them in a couple of hardcore sweat sessions, you can choose how you lose.

Ready to start counting? Check out this list and see how many calories per minute your favorite heart-revving exercise burns.
