Moving As A Form Of Workout: Start The Calorie Countdown
Published on Wednesday, 02 December 2009
Often times, people who move put some of their activities on hold to dedicate more time to the preparations for the move. Of course, most people do not want this particularly those individuals who regularly go to the gym. However, there is actually nothing to worry at all because moving can burn a good number of calories.
Almost everyone recognized that moving is one of the most demanding tasks. It comprises a lot of works to be completed such as packing, loading and unloading of things into the moving vehicle, installing and unpacking. So, individuals who are going to miss some sessions in the gym can still achieve their goal of losing calories. To make it more specific the Calories Per hour, the web's leading support for sustainable and healthy weight loss, stated the precise amount of calories burn in a particular moving task:
· 572 calories by moving boxes upstairs
· 191 calories by moving household items
· 381 calories by moving furniture
· 222 calories by packing and unpacking boxes
So then, since an average person is capable to pack five to seven boxes in an hour he can possibly lose a significant figure of calories by packing 10 boxes alone. That would be 2,220 calories in total. If this will be coupled with other moving tasks, then a person can burn even more amount of calories.
