I’m always looking for unexpected ways to burn calories, but did you know that there are some pretty sexy things we can do to help get our heart pumping? Yes ma’am, there are plenty of ways to burn calories without stepping foot into a gym or jogging outdoors. Don’t get me wrong, these “workouts” won’t take the place of a regular workout. They’re just some fun extracurricular activities that happen to burn calories! Let me tell you about some of the most interesting and unexpected ways to burn calories so you can get in on the action!
1. Taking a Shower
One of the most unexpected ways to burn calories for me was that you can actually burn 40 calories taking a shower with your significant other! Take at least a 15-minute shower and use this time to shower your honey with love and burn some bonus calories while the two of you get clean! What a great way to finish off your day!
Kissing was another surprising and sexy way to burn calories, 68 to be exact! This isn’t referring to short little pecks on the cheek and lips. This is referring to long, passionate kisses. Experts even say that if the kissing is more vigorous, you could burn up to 90 calories in an hour. Kissing for an hour might seem like a long time but it’s an easy way to bond with your love!
3. Give a Massage
I love receiving massages as much as I enjoy giving them. There’s something about soothing your significant other’s sore muscles or achy feet that makes you feel good and feel closer to them. Next time you’re asked to play the role of masseuse, go for about 10 minutes and you can burn up to 50 calories! Once you’re done giving the massage, you receive one, you can’t go wrong!
Dancing can be sensuous so it’s no wonder that it’s another sexy way to burn calories! Get up close and personal with your partner and spend some time doing some romantic dancing. You don’t have to twerk or do anything crazy in order to burn calories. Well, you can if you want, but you can still get the job done by slowly and steadily dancing as well as kissing, and burn around 100 calories per half hour!
5. Take a Walk
Taking a walk might not seem very sexy, but it can be a nice way to reconnect and spend some quality time with your loved one. You’ll not only burn calories but the time will go by fast since you’re totally caught up in your romantic walk! Walking about 2 miles an hour, even at a slow pace, can burn up to 150 calories! The next time the two of you have some spare time, suggest taking a stroll to burn cals and bond!
6. Pole Dancing
Pole dancing is a super sexy way to burn calories and you’ll have as much fun learning it as you will showing off your moves! Get some girlfriends together and take a pole dancing class. It’ll help you feel more confident and sexy, and you’ll really get your honey’s engine running! Spend one hour in a class or shaking your moneymaker for your love and you can burn up to a whopping 600 calories!
7. Skinny Dipping
We all know that swimming is a fab way to burn calories, so why not do it the sexy way and do it in the buff?! Swimming in your birthday suit doesn’t burn any extra calories unfortunately, but it can make the activity even more fun and flirty. Swim for about an hour to burn roughly 430 calories, or you can even simply tread water and burn almost 300 cals!
Burning calories just got a whole lot more interesting! Remember that there are lots of different ways to burn small amounts of calories here and there; you just have to use your imagination! The number of calories burned indicated above is just rough estimates as the actual amount will vary from person to person. Do you know of any other sexy ways to burn calories?
