From everyday activities like chores around the house, to exercises at the gym you can burn 100 calories in just a few minutes during your day. It is important to remember that you must be working at 60-80% of your maximum heart rate in order to classify an activity as a cardio ‘exercise’. Also by just reducing our daily caloric intake by 100 calories or by burning an additional 100 calories each day you can loose up to 10 pounds in 0ne year.
