  2. Car WashWashing the car. Burns 288 calories per hour. If you want to amp that up, try washing your dog—that burns 336 calories per hour.

  3. Gardening. Burns 384 calories per hour. If it's mostly weeding, you can ratchet that up to 432 calories per hour.

  4. MowerMowing the lawn pushing an electric mower. Burns 528 calories per hour. If you use a non-electric push lawnmower, you'll burn 576 calories per hour. If you use a riding mower, you're not really trying to burn calories, are you?

  5. SwimmingSwimming. Burns 576 calories per hour. And that's just for casual splashing around. If you want to really go for it, swimming laps can burn up to 960 calories per hour!
