Burn 600 Calories in a 60-Minute Workout With Jeanette Jenkins
How to burn 600 kcal without exercising
Hitting the squat rack? Pass. Triathlon? Old hat. New science has found the revolutionary way to get fit is right in your own home – cleaning the filthy windows you haven’t touched all year.

A study by theGood Housekeeping Institutefound people doing two hours of ‘intense’ household chores actually burned over 600 calories.
The GHI found window cleaning was the most taxing task, with participants burning an average of 115 calories in 20 minutes. Scrubbing the bathroom from top to bottom burnt an average of 100 calories, while dusting for 40 minutes (how big is this house?) burned nearly 200 calories in total.
To put this in perspective, 600 calories is nearly double the calories lost on a 5km run, and the equivalent to an hour's kickaround in the park, 40 minutes of squash or 100 minutes of cricket.

While these activities are certainly a lot more fun (well, except possibly cricket) it’s comforting to know your mindless household busywork is keeping you trim in addition to making the place presentable for your in-laws.
