I am currently at 16% bodyfat trying to get down to about 9-11% bodyfat and want to know about some excercises that can burn a lot of calories per hour. Jump roping can burn up to 1000 calories per hour but, doing it for an hour is tough. I am kind of at a platuea and need to do serious workouts to get down in fat. Jogging burns about 150 calories per hour and running up to about 300-500 depending how fast you are running. Let me know!

The best way to loose weight is do some cardio like running and to watch your diet.  Unless you have good genetics, it's tough to get below 14-16% for most people without making significant changes to their diet.

I tend to do timed road runs as fast as possible say three or four miles three times a week.

Never found anything better for burning off fat.esp in this heat.

If your're looking for something to do in the gym try doing compound movements like clean and press . Dropping the weights and upping the reps. And halfing your rest periods.

Friend of mine needs to lose a few pounds and he puked after doing three sets of that. ;D

I heard a stance on this on talk radio about a month or two ago.

They say this interval training (running hard for 2 or 3 minutes then resting) actually makes your heart stronger than if one were to run 6 miles at a constant pace.

oh and the doctor on the show said start off 30-50 seconds of hard sprinting for your sets and then move up
