Which Activities Or Sports Burn The Most Calories?

While all exercise burns some calories, some sports or activities burn a lot more.
Let's look at the basic, daily calories burned by humans. Men, due to their generally larger size, burn more calories. A resting 70-pound man burns 15 calories per minute; a 115-pound woman burns 12.
Keep in mind that a pound of fat contains 3,700 calories. But as fat contains more water and blood vessels than does a pound of lean muscle mass, that pound actually comes in at 1.2 pounds.
The ability to burn calories decreases with age; thus we gain weight. A 20-year-old person can ingest 3,000 calories per day and maintain her weight. By age 50, however, she cannot ingest more than 2,000 calories.
Activities that are not big calorie burners are playing tennis, swimming, and horseback riding. Playing squash, racquet ball, or handball; cross-country (Nordic) skiing; or bicycling are good calorie burners, at the rate of about 650 calories per hour. Running at a moderate pace of 10 miles per hour burns a whopping 900 calories per hour.

Please do not take this person's advice. 3/4 of their answer was not even relevant. Also, swimming and tennis are incredible calorie burners. Swimming ranks number two, just below rowing. Lastly, running at ten miles per hour is NOT a moderate pace and is considerably impractical for the average man/woman, much less running at 10 miles per hour for an entire hour. Be wise and don't take the advice of some layman that looked up facts on Google.

Well amongst them are football and tennis and probably athletics which are normally done outdoors. Among the ones that don't are golf.

Tennis and swimming are two main activities that burn most of the calories. There are some other activities also football, running and rock climbing.

If you want to sweat it out...then go dancing. If you prefer a cool one...take a dip or swim and make some few laps in the pool.

Great question!  Depending on what you like to do, I would stick with your favorite exercise because if you pick something as strenuous as sprinting to lose the most calories, you may not stick with it.

There are a lot of activities where you can burn calories.  The two that I do and are enjoyable to me are biking and rowing.  And I mean actually rowing on water, not a machine.  On a rowing machine you are not actually doing work.  On the water you are because you are moving weight, your body and the boat, a certain distance.  Besides burning calories you are also building muscle.  Your legs, arms, back, chest and shoulders are all being used.
If you want to stay fit you should weight train too. One pound of muscle burns 3 times the calories of a pound of fat, even when sitting, sleeping or whatever.

If you get on a stepper a machine that resembles the act of climbing stairs is a good way of burning calories or a running machine that does hill climb ,thats a killer but if your mentally focused on your set task it will shift calories fast.
