Do you love to sing in the shower? Or what about singing along while you’re cooking dinner and playing some music? This is one of the most fun ways to burn calories without sweating — unless you’re a pop star performing on stage. A study reveals the benefits of singing, and it even extends beyond burning calories. It’s good for the health of your heart. So, they’re not joking when they say, “sing your heart out.”
Singing actually exerts a fair bit of energy as you’re using a few of the muscles in your body. When you sing, you need to engage your abdominal muscles to support your voice. If you like to sing opera, you’ll be burning the most calories as this type of singing requires a lot of breath work and a lot of stamina to keep up with the singing. You can burn about 135 calories per hour of singing. This is great for road trips and nights out when you will be singing a lot without your neighbors wanting to call the cops on you for disturbing the peace.
