It is a known fact that running burns the most amounts of calories in an hour anywhere between 300 and 600 depending upon your pace. For example, if you run at about 9 km an hour pace, you can burn about 500 calories. If you have the ability to run faster than that, it is even better because you will burn all the more calories.
Running not only burns the most calories but it is also the best cardio-workout ever. It not only tones and strengthens your leg muscles but it is a workout for your whole body. A note of caution though – If you have never ran, please start with the pace that is the most comfortable for you and gradually build your stamina for running.
