What type of housework burns the most calories?


We’re not kidding when we say carrying groceries into your home is a fully-fledged workout — especially if you’re one of those types who believes everything must be done in one trip.

Depending on what you buy, carrying groceries up the front steps can burn an incredible 111 calories in just 15 minutes.

To supercharge your workout, try catching the bus to the supermarket and walking home from the bus-stop — it’s annoying, but it will tick off your daily workout in one go.

Calories burnt carrying groceries per hour: 442

Calories burnt leisurely walking per hour: 156
