30 Fast, New Fat-Burners

Use your arms and legs. A workout that requires coordinating arm and leg movements, such as swimming or step aerobics, feels easier than one that uses only one major muscle group, suggests research from Southwest Texas State University. That makes it more likely you’ll do it again tomorrow—keeping the fat-burning going.

Opt for a Wii. Playing active games on the Nintendo Wii (such as tennis and bowling) knocked out more calories than using the Xbox 360, said aBritish Medical Journal study.

Think about it. Subjects who visualized themselves going through a specific strength workout gained nearly as much strength as those who actually did it (24% versus 28%), one mind-blowing report in theNorth American Journal of Psychology found. More muscle means more calories burned.
