    Science-approved ways to actually increase your calorie burn regardless of your fitness level.

    So you want to increase the calorie burnage in your workouts...

    Before we get started, it's important to understand that there is no magic 'formula' for the way to burn the most calories.

    BUT, there are a bunch of easy ways to significantly increase your calorie burn if that's what you're looking for.

    1. In order to burn a lot of calories you have to get your heart rate really going.

    2. To get your heart rate up, make sure your level of effort is around an eight on a scale of one to 10 throughout your exercises.

    3. Be sure to do high-intensity interval training for cardio!

    4. Or if high-intensity just isn't for you, try to work out at a lower intensity for at least 45 minutes.

    5. Incorporate as many total-body moves as possible.

    6. And work your way up to lifting heavier weights.

    7. Don't be afraid to take short breaks in between sets and exercises.

    8. And remember to switch up your daily routine.

    9. And speaking of recovery, make sure you take your rest days seriously.

    10. Continue to keep as active as you can throughout the rest of the day.

    11. And drink tons of water.

    12. Fuel up on simple carbs before starting a workout.

    13. And eat a consistent diet filled with enough complex carbs and protein.

    All that being said, remember to be proud of your hard work, regardless of how many calories you're burning.
