As many of you probably are, I am deep into the book "The Hunger Games" this week, trying to finish it before the movie comes out this weekend. It has completely pulled me in. It is such an intriguing storyline and the author, Suzanne Collins, has such a simple, yet captivating way of writing. Plus, I have really taken a liking to how bad ass the main character, Katniss is. All of her hunting, archery and running has me truly inspired to be more outdoorsy.
So, in honor of Katniss, here are the best ways to burn calories, while being super bad ass (according to this calorie calculator and me).
Calorie-Torching Survival Workouts
Activity (for 15 minutes) Calories Burned (for 130 lb woman)
Running (7 mph) 170
Rock climbing 162
Swimming (vigorously) 144
Rowing (vigorously) 129
Chopping wood 90
Now you can see why it is called "The Hunger Games." I'm hungry just thinking about how much energy it takes to survive.
What is your favorite "survival" workout?
Can you think of one that I forgot to list?
