Apple Pie Workout Challenge | How to Burn Off One BITE of Pie!

Oh, how I love fall! The leaves changing.. hoodies.. lattes… and of course, PIE!

But what if I were to tell you that there are 70 calories in just ONE BITE of Apple Pie? Yes, you heard me right.

I decided to put myself through the torture of finding out just exactly how much exercise needed to be done to burn off that one bite. At the end of my workout, I was gasping for breath and sweating like a pig!

Watch the video below for my full workout challenge:

How to burn off one bite of pie {70 calories}:

Jumping Jacks: 2 minutes =15 calories

  • Stand with your feet together and your hands down by your side.
  • In one motion jump your feet out to the side and raise your arms above your head.
  • Immediately reverse that motion by jumping back to the starting position.

Hula Hooping: 1 minute =10 calories

  • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and hands out to sides.
  • Starting in one motion, make a circle using your hips.
  • Switch directions if needed and increase pace.

Jogging in Place: 1 minute=10 calories

  • Just as if you were jogging normally, jog swiftly in place.
  • Try to land your feet in the same area as you do each step.

Kettlebell Swings: 1 minute =10 calories

  • Stand with feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent.
  • Hold a kettlebell between your legs with both hands, overhand grip.
  • Keeping your lower back arched, bend your hips back until the kettlebell is between and behind your legs; squeeze your glutes to extend your hips and swing the weight upward.
  • Let the weight swing back down between your legs as you bend your knees.

Jump Roping in Place: 1 minute =10 calories

  • Jump as if you are jumping rope. You want to jump high enough so that the imaginary rope passes under your feet. Keep both feet together.
  • Use your hands and pretend you are flipping the rope.

Moutain Climbers: 1 minute =15 calories

  • Place hands on floor, slightly wider than shoulder width. On forefeet, position one leg forward bent under body and extend other leg back.
  • While holding upper body in place, alternate leg positions by pushing hips up while immediately extending forward leg back and pulling rear leg forward under body, landing on both forefeet simultaneously.

Total: 70 calories burned = one bite of apple pie!
