One easy way to kick start calorie burning without changing your workout routine is to simply throw on a Hyper Vest PRO weight vest.

“…by adding resistance to your workout, you can boost your overall caloric output. Resistance in the form of a weighted vest helps to amplify your calorie burning results of any weight-bearing exercise such as running, jumping rope, or playing your favorite sport,” says Kimberly Butts, author of the article “Weighted Vests to Burn More Calories.” Calories are burned with a weighted vest.

Another great way to get more bang for your caloric buck is with circuit training. According to Harvard Health Publications, on average a 155 pound person will burn 298 calories after 30 minutes of circuit training, and a 185 pound person will burn 355 calories.
