  • Running isn’t ‘for’ everyone. If you are one of those people who would rather eat rocks than go for a jog, you’re in for some good news. Running is not the most efficient method of burning calories. The average person burns an average of 10 calories per minute while running. Here are 10 exercises that rank higher than running when it comes to calorie burn:

  • 1. Kettlebell Swings
