Want to get maximum calorie burn during your run? Hit the road.
If you want to maximize your weight loss while doing your cardio, ditch the treadmill and start running outside. Researchers found that running outside burns 15% more calories than running on a treadmill.
This number jumps even more when there are hills and wind to deal with outside. If you can’t run outside – or really love your treadmill – you can make up the difference in calories burned by turning up the speed 15%.
